It's all about choices

Kind of surprising news today that the 17-year-old daughter of presumed Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin is 5 months pregnant. Sources say McCain knew about this before he chose Palin. Hmm. The spin-meisters are out in force, but the theme is obvious. From CNN -
  • "Fortunately, Bristol is following her mother and father's example of choosing life in the midst of a difficult situation," Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said.
  • Evangelical leader Richard Land also backed Palin completely."This is the pro-life choice"
  • The McCain aide emphasized that Bristol decided to keep the baby, a decision "supported by her parents."
Interesting choice of words. Interesting, because if Palin's Republican party had its choice, the decision would have been taken out of Bristol's hands. They would prefer that no woman have any choice in the matter of reproductive freedoms. I am happy to live in a country that allows all women - even Republicans - the right to choose.
