Palin’s Celebration of Life, “Mama Grizzly” Speech

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 30, 2012

On May 14th, 2010 I was honored to be a guest at the Susan B. Anthony Celebration of Life Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. at the Ronald Reagan Building.  It was a both a dream come true and a real blessing to meet Governor Palin.  When watching Palin on television she always seemed to speak from the heart and have a kind of friendly way that never knows a stranger.  Upon meeting her in person, Sarah’s warm personality and lovely smile truly lit up the entire room and her sincere “thank you for your support” meant so very much. As this speech opens, the first few words are not included but Palin is asking me and others from Team Sarah to stand as she publicly thanks us.

Palin’s speech to the Susan B. Anthony List fundraiser attendees was more personal than political.  Governor Palin talked about her own family’s unplanned pregnancies, why choosing life is the right decision along with a reminder that all life has value.  Out of this speech came the “mama grizzly” analogy in which Palin describes the protective mama grizzly which rises up  on her hind legs to protect her cubs. Palin likened the women of the Tea Party to mama grizzlies citing “if you think pit bulls are tough, well you don’t wanna mess with the mama grizzlies”.

Governor Palin Reclaims True Feminism

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 14, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin spoke this morning in our nation’s capital at the Susan B. Anthony List Celebration of Life Breakfast. I couldn’t attend, but having watched the video and listened intently to the Governor’s speech, I can unequivocally say those who were there are the better for it.

The country is well-aware that she is an unapologetically pro-life woman. For this reason some praise her and others deride her. Love her or hate her, what separates Governor Palin from others, what causes people to sit up and take notice when she talks about the life issue, is one thing: she walks the walk. That fact alone gives her credibility–which is what delights the pro-life community and disgusts the pro-abortion community.

Her words in D.C. today at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center grabbed the attention of those present in a way the words of others could not because they carry the weight of experience. Her commitment to life has been tested, and though it was a challenge, by the grace of God, she passed with flying colors.

Governor Palin called the attendees’ attention to true feminism. It is unfortunate that feminism has been twisted into this pro-abortion movement that labels anyone who opposes abortion anti-woman, but the Governor told the SBA List:

You remind us that the earliest leaders of the women’s rights movement…they were pro-life.

She also used the term “feminist foremothers,” reminding us of the rich pro-woman, pro-life heritage we have. She declared, too, that groups like the SBA List were “returning the women’s movement back to its original roots.” This is especially important to me because I refused to be associated in any way, shape, or form with the word “feminism”–until Governor Palin reclaimed it.

True feminism indeed is acknowledging the value of women, the nurturing heart of women, and the strength of women to rise to the challenge, even in “less than ideal circumstances,” as Governor Palin says. However, the new-fangled modern-day feminism–which is an outright perversion of true feminism–does not believe women capable of rising to these challenges. Governor Palin called these so-called pro-women’s groups “hypocritical.” What would you call those that say a woman can do absolutely anything–except carry the child within her when it’s inconvenient?

Her personal journey of learning that Trig would be born with special needs is always moving. Today she shared how during the weeks of her pregnancy, God seemed to whisper in her ears a simple, yet all-important, question: “Are you gonna trust Me?”

With His help, she found the strength to trust, to walk the walk. In a voice born of true conviction, she shared that when Trig was born, she came to understand something in a deeper way than ever.

God does know what He’s doing, and what seemed like what would be such a challenge has turned into our greatest blessing.

She continued with this statement, which was followed by a rousing standing ovation:

Trig has been the best thing that has ever happened to me and to the Palin family.

Considering that 90% of women carrying babies with Down Syndrome abort those children, that one sentence needs to be shared with the world. It’s clear that Governor Palin wants others to know the blessing her family knows. To make that a reality, life must be encouraged, which is why she adds her efforts to the cause.

Not only was Governor Palin’s faith tested in her own life, but she watched her daughter rise up to take on the challenge of an unplanned pregnancy–truly “less than ideal circumstances” for a seventeen year old high school student. Bristol has come to also see, however, the blessing that can come from the difficulty, and now she chooses to embrace abstinence, a personal stand for which she gets “clobbered” by some clueless people. Nonetheless, she stands by her conviction.

Through her experiences, Governor Palin said she understands why some women are tempted to have an abortion, yet her feet remain firmly planted in truth:

Choosing life may not be the easiest path, but it’s always the right path. And I’ve had that confirmation. The timing of the circumstances may not be perfect, but God sees a way where we cannot, and He doesn’t make mistakes.

Once again, Governor Palin takes a strong stand for life, and that stand elicits a response–because of her track record, because of her integrity on the issue. That record makes her a leading spokesperson for the pro-life, pro-woman movement. On this issue she speaks for the majority of Americans, for statistics show that America is predominantly a pro-life country now–and the numbers continue to grow, thank God. I, therefore, applaud Governor Palin and groups like the Susan B. Anthony List for their commitment to this important work.

As Governor Palin said:

It all comes down to life and how we’re going to take a stand on protecting innocent life and deciding that nobody is beneath the protection of our laws.

That’s a common sense message from a common sense citizen leader.

She ended her speech today with this word of encouragement:

We’re getting the job done, sisters–one life, one activist, one election, one vote, one American dream at a time.

You betcha!

Governor Palin’s message of life is worth the half hour it’ll take to listen. Please watch the video below and share it with others.

19th Amendment and Sarah Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 26, 2009

By Adrienne Ross from http://www.motivationtruth.com

On August 26, 1920, the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution, which grants women the right to vote, becomes law. Washington women had won the vote in 1910, after which Washington suffragists had helped with the national campaign to amend the constitution so that all American women could vote.

Eighty nine years after the 19th amendment, America is still engaging in conversations that seek to define who a feminist is and what she stands for. Without a doubt, Sarah Palin resurrected some of those conversations when she became the first woman to earn herself a place on a Republican ticket. Geraldine Ferraro had done the same for the Democratic ticket in 1984.

It is astounding that it took so long for both these accomplishments, and even more astounding that women are still in the position of defending their place within the political process. No one knows this more than Governor Sarah Palin. She has always acknowledged those women who have gone before her to pave the way for her and desires to be a source of inspiration for those girls who follow after her.

It is unfortunate that the governor has had to fight against the smears of both men and women, some of whom seem content with having a conservative woman exercise her right to vote, as long as she’s not the woman we actually vote for. Nonetheless, Sarah Palin rises above the small thinking of some who want to put “feminism” in a box. Many women have now broken out of the box and are grateful, not only for the privilege given in 1920 to walk into that voting box, but to see the name of another woman staring back at them when they get in there.

In the video below, Governor Sarah Palin discusses with Greta van Susteren her commitment to uniting women on issues of health care and equal opportunities if ever she chooses to run for higher office again.
