Canadian doc: Palin is a bad role model because she didn't abort her Down Syndrome baby

More for the bad mommy! files. But this one hits a new low - attacking Palin for not killing her own baby. If pro abortion folks want to argue the point on the "it's too inconvenient to have a disabled kid" front, go for it.


Dr. Andre Lalonde, the executive vice president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada, is "expressing concerns" that a "prominent public role model as the governor of Alaska and potential vice president of the United States completing a Down syndrome pregnancy may prompt other women to make the same decision against abortion because of that genetic abnormality. And thereby reduce the number of abortions." This, Lalonde feels, would be problematic, because of women who aren't "prepared to deal with the consequences" of a Down syndrome child.
