CBN’s David Brody interviewed GOP VP pick Sarah Palin for a segment to run tomorrow, October 21.
Brody asked Palin’s analysis of Barack Obama’s self-characterization of being a “strong Christian family man” versus his stance on abortion.
Palin listed Obama’s outside-of-mainstream positions like opposition to parental notification as well as the Partial Birth Abortion Ban but reserved most of her critique to Obama’s opposition as state senator to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act…
Transcript of Brody’s question and Palin’s response is on page 2.
Brody: I want to ask you a direct question about Barack Obama. He has talked about being a strong Christian family man. I get a lot of emails about the abortion and homosexuality issues. Do you believe that on those issues, those contrast traditional biblical values the way you see it?
Palin: I think the most troubling issue that I know of that Barack Obama is completely the other side of John McCain and that I am on is, is the abortion issue because his abortion stance is so extreme. It’s so, so far left that it’s way out of the mainstream. I think he’s in some sense succeeded in trying to package up, and pretty-up some of his policies to make them look mainstream even on abortion, but American voters have got to realize his opposition to parental consent, his opposition to a ban on partial birth abortion and most troubling his opposition to the child born alive act, I think should be, and I say this, I mean, this is mild to say it is quite concerning. But to withhold medical intervention for a baby who is born alive as a result of a botched abortion and to allow that child to die without the medical intervention that that child deserves I, it’s appalling to me and I think it should concern voters, and I think they just need to know of that record, and it’s not mean spirited and it’s not negative campaigning to call somebody out on their record, so that record of extreme, extreme position taken on abortion, I think should be discussed and considered.
