She was on a trip out of state at the time, she said, and "just for a fleeting moment I thought, 'No one knows me here; no one would ever know.' ... My amniocentesis came back and then I understood why some people would think they could change their circumstances, just take care of it. Todd didn't even know" the results of the prenatal testing yet, so "no one would know."
I actually think it's refreshing to hear one of these fundies confess in public that they've had a moment of doubt or that they've been tempted, because so many of them are so goddamn sanctimonious about everyone else's frailties. As we say down South, they act like their shit don't stink.
I may not ever like Governor Palin (unless she apologizes for all that exclusionary and divisive "real America" crap) but I respect her honesty in this situation. Further, I respect her choice.
Now, Governor, take the next step, and admit that you had a choice, so so should other women. And respect their choices, just as you ask us to respect yours. How's that sound?
