America, this is what pro-life looks like:
Here, and here, and here.
Sarah Palin's speech tonight was extraordinary, powerful, delivered with poise, grace, and charm. It's going to be discussed, analyzed, and studied to death over the next few days, and I doubt the media's determination to dig up dirt on Governor Palin or her family will abate any time soon.
But the most powerful witness to the value of human life tonight was the very presence of little Trig Palin, whose life is considered valueless by those who believe that unborn babies who have Down syndrome or some other challenge or even who simply are inconvenient to their parents ought to be slaughtered like animals and thrown away like trash.
And Trig's unborn niece or nephew was, thanks to the media's 24/7 coverage of Bristol's pregnancy, also a silent witness to the value of human life, since he/she is also being welcomed with joy, not "disposed of" in the dark empty despairing silence of a bloodstained abortion mill.
The pictures say it all. Whatever else happens in this election, I'm glad Sarah Palin and her family graced that stage tonight, to bear witness to the sanctity of human life just by being there.
UPDATE: A commenter on ABC's website said of this speech that it looks like we just found out who will be the first woman President of the United States.
