Doctors give unborn boy zero chance of survival before he gives them a ‘true miracle’.

Doctors reminded the couple that any child with Down syndrome and severe heart defects would not survive. Because Amy and Aaron were against abortion, a doctor offered another option – inducing early labor at 28 weeks when the baby would be too young to survive.  But Amy knew that was the same thing as abortion.

The Vawters soon found themselves switching to a Catholic hospital in Spokane, WA because it was closer to family and their support network. The doctors there didn’t once pressure Amy to abort and she says she was very happy with their attitude towards her and her baby.

Editor’s note: Somebody should send this article to the ACLU – which recently filed a law suit against Catholic hospitals because they do not do abortions – although I doubt they would care to read it.

Going Rogue

It’s been professionally co-written for style by Lynn Vincent who is a very fine correspondent with “World” magazine but the words and flavor are definitely Palin. It covers Palin’s background very well, capturing her feelings as thoroughly as a biography can. I was especially moved about her inner thoughts as she discovered she was carrying a Down Syndrome baby and her decision to avoid abortion and go ahead with it. It was this decision that earned her the undying enmity of the feminist Left… an enmity as Charles Krauthammer points out is born of scarcely hidden jealousy since they would not have had the courage to go along with the birth and consequently berate themselves-and end up hating Palin for it.

I think the book accomplished its purpose and was astutely put together. I cheer the fact it has no index because political phonies who pick it up and riffle through to the back so see if they are mentioned will have to buy it: a wise decision.

Now I would urge Mme. Palin to do one thing that will advance her career. She should not be in the everyday business of blasting this or that media individual-be it Couric, Olbermann, Letterman-or any publication that criticizes her. She should have either one spokesman or a vehicle to do that. She trivializes herself as she did yesterday by condemning Newsweek as “sexist” for running a certain unflattering photo of her on its cover. Newsweek is a very left-of-center organ, is gradually being seen for what it is and ignored-either that or slammed by someone else.

Beyond that, I am assuredly a Palin fan and wish her well. I would wholeheartedly love to see this country governed by her and let the “mainstream” media go to hell where it belongs.

With Media, It All Depends.

John Edwards who was Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004 and a front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination in 2008 will shortly confess that…in contradiction to what he has said previously…he is indeed the father of the baby born to his mistress.

The story of his adultery was widely ignored by the mainstream media at the time. In fact CBS’s Bob Schieffer scoffed when the story was floated that there are always stories floating around about politicians’ behavior and that he would ignore it.

The National Enquirer…of all publications…finally shamed the media to cover it since there was no way for the media to flee. Edwards withdrew from the race.

By any other professional standard, a person so outwardly biased as Schieffer as to allow his judgment to become converted to Enabler, would be drummed out of his work. Schieffer who is guilty of great journalistic malpractice continues. The reason: he is a liberal and Edwards is a liberal-hence the story is not of that much significant interest to the liberal media.

Edwards went on to spew a flurry of lies. He said he conducted the affair when his wife’s cancer was in remission. We know now that the affair began when Elizabeth was not in remission…continued through remission and in fact through the period when she was pronounced in danger. Thus: he’s a chronic liar. We know that he denied paternity alleging that it could not be since he did not have sexual relations with his mistress at a time that would make possible her pregnancy. We know that he did the disgraceful act of importuning a staffer to take a hit for being the father. These two actions were out-and-out lies. And still the media determine that the story is yesterday’s news: based on the fact that the media agrees wholeheartedly with Edwards on the issues.

In contrast, Sarah Palin has had a distinctively honorable record and character in life.

She was notified that she was carrying a Down Syndrome child and went through with the birth rather than get an abortion. But she has been Target One on the media and David Letterman’s hit list ever since.

The logical reason: she is a conservative Republican and the media are liberal Democrat. No other way to explain it.

That and as the psychiatrist-Pulitzer Prize-winner Charles Krauthammer says: the fact that she went through with the birth makes liberal feminist women angry out of inner guilt…since they would have short-circuited the baby’s birth and are inwardly guilty about it…so in rage this significant portion of the liberal Democratic constituency wishes to punish Palin for this act and the liberal media follow obediently.
