Sarah Palin Talks to Katie Couric About Abortion
As she did when discussing her own daughter Bristol's decision to carry her pregnancy to term, Governor Palin often talks about abortion in a way that suggests that, although she is personally opposed to abortion, she views the decision as a personal choice. This is misleading given her position opposing abortion "with the exception of a doctor’s determination that the mother’s life would end if the pregnancy continued." Moreover, while Palin also talks about same-sex relationships in a non-judgmental way, she has said that "I believe that marriage should only be between and man and a woman."
