Unlike GOP, Palin Touts Pro-life

While so many Republicans avoid the pro-life party platform this year, Sarah Palin doesn't hesitate to speak the pro-life message, and call down politicians who do not.

Sarah Palin called President Barack Obama the most pro-abortion president ever Thursday and mocked Florida's governor for claiming to be pro-life after vetoing a bill that would have required women to get ultrasounds before having the procedure.

"Unfortunately your Republican governor," Palin began before pausing. "I don't know if he wants to be one or is a Republican anymore."

After the crowd booed, she continued.

"Your governor, he decided to veto this pro-life bill," she said before drawing laughs by sarcastically pointing out that Crist still calls himself pro-life. "He forgot that when [it] comes protecting the sanctity of life actions speak louder than words."

Palin said the ObamaCare health care plan Obama and his Democratic allies passed would lead to more abortions because of abortion funding it contains.

"The biggest advance of the abortion industry in America is the passage of Obamacare," Palin said, according to an AP report. "Elective abortions have nothing to do with health care. It's about ending lives, not saving lives."

Obama, by many accounts, has become the most aggressive president in promoting the pro-abortion agenda and he has compiled a lengthy record funding abortions with taxpayer dollars both domestically and abroad.

During the speech for Heroic Media, a pro-life group that relies on billboards, television ads and the Internet, Palin touched on the typical personal topics she does in many of her stump speeches, such as the birth of her mentally disabled son Trig.

Palin also said the experience of having a daughter with a teenage pregnancy helped strengthen her own pro-life views.
