Hatred of Palen.
Thu 12/3/2009 3:30 PM
I wanted to share with you an article I just wrote which I invite you to print in your newspaper or newsletter. I recently was speaking in Anchorage, Alaska and I had the opportunity to speak to Sarah Palin's Mom and Brother. I shared with them my thoughts about the attacks on Sarah and they were quite interested. They liked my take on things. So the attached article is my thoughts as to why the attacks on Sarah Palin continue and will continue.
Also, the Night of December 8th is the National Night of Prayer for Life. Parishes are invited to hold prayer services for the Cause of Life. This initiative has been successful for many years and Priests for Life is privileged to be a key promoter of this prayer effort. For more information see www.nationalnightofprayer.org.

The Attacks Arenít Because Palin Is Pro-Life.
by Janet Morana
Itís been over a year since the election of 2008 and yet Sarah Palin cannot show up in the news without a barrage of vicious attacks from the media. Although she is no longer a candidate for vice president, the vitriol continues to spew over the release of her book, "Going Rogue: An American Life." Many think the anti-Sarah sentiment stems from her solid pro-life position but I would like to explore reasons that go way beyond her feelings about abortion.
As you look back in history to the late 1960s and 1970s, you see a wave of feminist ideals being sold to women, including the notion that they needed to delay motherhood to get ahead in their careers. Many women bought into this belief that giving birth and career advancement didnít mix. So what happened?
Many women chose the birth control route, delaying marriage and childbirth well into their thirties and even forties. Their biological clocks ticked away and they sacrificed the most fertile time in their lives for career advancement and what they thought would be true happiness.
Some, when faced with an unplanned pregnancy they believed would interfere with their careers, chose the abortion route. They sacrificed the life of their unborn child for their own personal career advancement. Now enter Sarah Palin, a woman with a husband, children and a high-profile career. Yes, this hockey Mom went from school board, to mayor, to governor to a vice presidential candidate! And her own unplanned pregnancy ended not in the hands of an abortionist, but in the loving embrace of the Palin family.
Now when the women who sacrificed motherhood either by abortion or birth control look at Sarah, they canít stand her, even if they canít explain why. Because she was able to have a family and a career, they see her as having the best of both worlds. They see, in this confident, self-possessed, accomplished woman, surrounded by a loving family, everything they gave up.
In a nation that has lost more than 50 million children to abortion, we have millions of women who have these repressed feelings. Many have suffered silently from these negative consequences since their abortion. I know first-hand about this trauma and I invite anyone still dealing with the pain, shame and regret of abortion to visit www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org.
The next time you hear Sarah being attacked so viciously, consider that it might be because we are a nation that has been wounded by abortion.
