Even though McCain's choice for VP last week is a woman, the evangelical, socially conservative Sarah Palin couldn't be more anti-woman. According to Cecile Richards, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund President (who delivered a great speech at the Democratic National Convention last week), "When Palin was running for lieutenant governor in 2002, she sent an e-mail to the Alaska Right to Life board saying she was as 'pro-life as any candidate can be.'" According to Naral Pro-Choice America, "Palin, a member of the anti-choice group Feminists for Life, said during her campaign for governor that she is opposed to abortion, even in cases of rape or incest." RH Reality Check has a great summary of why you should be afraid, be very afraid: the overturning of Roe v. Wade, more ineffective abstinence-only education (and yes, ineffective abstinence-only education begins at home!), a pro-active assault on gay rights... Fortunately, Condomania has your first line of defense: Palin Protection condoms! (For reals!) Your second (and most important) line of defense, of course, is to register and then actually vote this coming November 4th to ensure that McCain/Palin don't take us back to the 1950s when it comes to repro rights and sexual freedoms.


Anti-woman, or pro-baby? Granted, she does oppose aborting a baby after it is born alive, in contrast to Sen. Obama's vote while in the Illinois legislature.

Considering she slashed funding for state programs that helped teenage mothers as Gov. of Alaska, yea, I'd say she is anti-woman.
