This Won't Win Palin Any Fans Inside the Beltway!

Not that she has that many among Washington insiders, or the press, in the 1st place.

Rather than attend the White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend Sarah Palin opted to attend a pro-life event to raise funds for pro-life billboards & commercials. The event in Bethesda, MD was put on to raise funds for Heroic Media. Heroic Media is "a faith-based non-profit that reduces abortion by creating a Culture of Life through television, billboard and internet advertising which connects women in crisis with life-affirming pregnancy centers." The dinner was part of a Kosher Shabbaton event put on by Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin.

In her speech to a crowd of about 200 at the dinner she explained her choice of this event over the "The pro-life cause or White House Correspondents' Dinner? I choose life," she said.

But, as she explained to the crowd, she did send he daughter Bristol to represent her. “Go and grit your teeth if you hear Palin jokes out there on the podium,” Palin told her daughter.

& while she joked a bit about the cult of celebrity that makes up the Correspondents Dinner, she also made it clear that pro-lifers are not to abandeon their ateempts to influence the public within the media. “We’re not going to be absent from that arena… I think we kind of want to infiltrate it. We want to get in there and affect that change,” she said.

Palin also presented an award to Lila Rose for the work she has been doing with Live Action to expose the truth about Planned Parenthood. Palin said that “Planned Parenthood doesn’t empower women, or offer women who find themselves in less than ideal circumstances any kind of real choice. What they offer is not real choice or female health care.

She said she understands the struggle women often go through & how they might, “even for a split second” consider an abortion. She was presented with that option when her son Trig was diagnosed with Down syndrome before he was born. But she opted for life. & clearly sees it as the only choice.

While on the subject, she brought up 1 very sad statistic, about 90% of those with Down syndrome are aborted. Like I said, her actions show that the real choice is to give a child life, no matter what. She also encouraged those in attendance to continue the fight to defund Planned Parenthood.

Note: Heroic Media runs their ads on MTV, Univision, & Black Entertainment Television (BET). Their latest project is an ad campaign drawing attention to the severe impact of abortion on minorities in the U.S., especially the black community, as well as Planned Parenthood’s role as the nation’s largest abortion franchise.
