Women who don’t like Palin are just jealous because they want severely disabled babies of their own.

Here's a bio on this shithead:

His spew about guilt, projection, blah, blah, blah is a stinking pile of rot.

People like him speak in flowery terms about blessings from God, et al. But what he has no clue about is that bringing a child into the world with a trisomy (as in Downs) is crippling to an entire family. Apart from the cognitive disability, Downs comes with other serious medical problems. Caring for a child with Downs is a massive lifetime commitment.

It's so sweet and dear that Palin can lug Trig around like a prize in a $95 romper (or have one of her other kids tote him around). Lucky for her, she can sell some of her 150 grand clothing to pay for his nannies, special ed teachers, and health care. For the rest of us, a healthy child is large enough of a life and financial burden.

Conservatives - pro-life until birth.

Erica, it's not nice to beat up on the poor bloggers at NRO. It's like coat hangering Trigs in a womb.

Dude, ECB -- why do you link to this stuff. It's FRIDAY. Last thing I want to bring into the weekend with me is some dipshit of a guy who thinks he knows what he's talking about. I'm the choir here about right to choice, but this stuff is just depressing on a Friday afternoon.

What about women who don't like you?

"We know from our work with thousands of women who feel pressured to abort for various reasons that she would surely suffer many of the common post-abortion symptoms; depression, promiscuity, drug and alcohol abuse, sleep disorders, and relational problems. "

Sheer douchebaggery. Thanks for the link.

You just can't make this shit up. I swear to god, that whole article sounds like something from the Onion.

What a moronic tool.

"If the couple has experienced an previous abortion prior to the PPD pregnancy, the mother or father can see their experience as a type of punishment from God for the first abortion and struggle with additional powerful feelings of anger and guilt."

Yeah, God was pissed at you for having an abortion, so he sends you ANOTHER baby that won't live to see its first birthday!

It's like saying that delicious Haagen Daz ice cream is God's way of punishing fat people.

One small comment: I don't think it's fair to call Down's Syndrome a *severe* disability. It's a disability, but someone who can't speak, needs tube feedings, and is wholly immobile is severely disabled.
