Palin Triumphs Over Another Murkowski

Posted by traceyporreca on May 2, 2011

*UPDATE* – Please see the update at the end of this article.

“Planned Parenthood doesn’t empower women, or offer women who find themselves in less than ideal circumstances any kind of real choice. What they offer is not real choice or female health care.”
– Sarah Palin

On Friday, April 29, members of the Alaska Federation of Republican Women (AFRW) heard from Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski as she came to speak to the delegates. As many of you know, Lisa Murkowski lost the primary election for the Republican seat in Alaska to Joe Miller, but proceeded to mount a controversial write-in campaign and eventually kept the senate seat in the general election. This has been very divisive within the Republican party in Alaska. One of the most divisive components is her stance on Life. The Alaska Republican Party Platform addresses the issue of Life as follows:

“We endorse the Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Man is made in the image of God; we embrace the sanctity of life from the moment of conception until natural death. We heartily encourage our elected officials to use every legal means to protect the unborn and recognize the worth of even the smallest members of the human race.”

Our senior senator Murkowski recently voted against defunding Planned Parenthood. On her own in her speech to the AFRW, the senator acknowledged her campaign had divided the party, but she stated she hoped we could “all unite” in efforts to strengthen the Republican Party in Washington. An article appeared in today’s “Frontiersman,” the Wasilla newspaper, about the AFRW event. Her comments were very interesting regarding the divisiveness within the party:

She told the group that although she knows that some of them did not agree with her decision to move forward with a write-in campaign to keep her Senate seat, she hopes they can now unite in their efforts to strengthen the GOP in Washington.

“There were people who had been friends for a long time who weren’t able to talk about the campaign because it became as emotional as it did,” she said. “I took a risk, those of you who stayed with me took a risk. I thank you for that. But I also know that that risk caused more than just mild discomfort. It caused some real anxiety. But we have a challenge in front of us as a federation. I challenge you all to figure out how to build on the strengths we have as Republican women in this state.”

While people criticize Gov. Palin for “quitting” office and dividing the state, it is elected officials like Murkowski that are truly divisive. (See here for our position on the quitter arguement.)Mounting a write-in campaign against the wishes of her constituents after losing in the primary has created a rift that many feel will only be closed once she is out of office. Her stance on the Life issue is a major reason why she lost the Republican nomination during the primary to begin with. The Life issue turned out to be the pivotal point in that election and what keeps many from supporting her to this day.

Continuing on in her speech to the AFRW and wrapping up comments, she addressed questions. One delegate to the convention then asked the pivotal question – why did Murkowski NOT support defunding Planned Parenthood? The “Frontiersman” article addresses this question, and Murkowski’s answer:

When one woman in the back of the room asked her why she didn’t support cutting funding for Planned Parenthood, an organization that made more than $900 million in profits last year that the woman considers to be corrupt, Murkowski was clear on her own message there.

“I don’t believe that Planned Parenthood should be entirely defunded,” she said. “The House measure would have been a complete and total elimination of those dollars. I happen to believe that Planned Parenthood does do good things for women in this country, particularly low-income women, and I was willing to put myself behind that position in that vote. That’s my perspective and if people feel differently, they vote the other way. I think we saw that final outcome.”

She was willing to put herself behind that position? “That’s my perspective…” she states. What about what her constituents want? What about the Alaska Republican Party platform?

Contrast this with Gov. Palin. Yesterday, Gov. Palin had the opportunity to speak at the Heroic Media “Heroes Among Us” fundraiser dinner. This speech was attended also by Adrienne Ross, writer and founder of Motivation Truth, a site which supports Gov. Palin. In her speech, Gov. Palin showed that she is a true conservative Alaskan woman who stands by those who adhere to the Alaska Republican Party Platform. Gov. Palin addressed her own decision to choose life, and that of her daughter Bristol as well:

Upon learning that she was pregnant with a child with Down Syndrome, she said, she went through an array of emotions which led her to rely on God’s strength, Who said He would not give us any more than we can handle, yet she remembers saying to God, “I think you over-estimated me this time!” She spent her pregnancy, she so transparently shared, crying out for God’s miraculous touch.

The moment Trig was born, as he melted in her arms, she knew God had answered her prayers. He changed her world then, and he continues to inspire, as she watches him greet every day with applause–literally. “Trig is the light of our life,” she said.

She then shared Bristol’s story–yes, less than ideal circumstances once again, but Bristol found strength to do the right thing. Both mother and daughter embraced life, believing in God’s strength–and not taking counsel from those who choose to believe that women are not strong enough to handle the challenges they face. “Choosing life may not be the easy path, but it is the right path,” she declared.

And then the governor addressed the Planned Parenthood issue:

Contrast this to Planned Parenthood, which the Governor called out for all its corruption and dedication to abortion. Planned Parenthood, she said, doesn’t show other options. “What they offer is not real choice.” She went on to state that the federal government has no business subsidizing such an organization, particularly when we have a major fiscal problem on our hands. America gives $1,000,000 taxpayer dollars to them every day, and Governor Palin emphatically said, she doesn’t want her money paying for the abortion of a child. We will not stop until not one cent goes to Planned Parenthood and funding abortion, she vowed.

She spoke at length about Lila Rose, whom she presented with the Heroes Among Us Award. Governor Palin praised Lila for being passionate about life, for exposing Planned Parenthood for its illegal activities, and for fearlessly speaking out on this issue. She compared Lila’s work to that of human rights activism. “She’s using her voice to defend the voiceless,” the Governor said. Unlike what you hear in the media, Governor Palin is not intent on making herself the focus. Much–if not most–of her speech was dedicated to praising this young woman whom she respects greatly.

Upon receiving the award, Ms. Rose immediately called attention to Governor Palin’s own heroism, stating that she is a hero to all women. Heroic Media defines a hero as “someone who makes great personal sacrifices for the benefit of others.” Yes, both Governor Palin and Lila Rose qualify.

Sarah Palin is unabashedly, unequivocally Pro-Life and is not afraid to stand up and tell the world. Many here in Alaska respect that greatly.

As for Sen. Murkowski – she was elected to be a voting delegate at the AFRW convention, and was to attend the second day of the convention and vote. However, she sent a proxy in her stead and did not show. Who knows why? Maybe it had to do with the hard question she was asked by that delegate about Planned Parenthood, a delegate who later defended that question to a handful of Murkowski supporters in attendance. Maybe it was the conversation she had with another delegate in the hall, an ardent Joe Miller supporter, who let her know that we will not forget where she stands and how she votes on this and other issues. Or maybe it was the huge truck that someone hired which circled the AFRW venues both days. On this truck was a very large billboard picture of an aborted fetus, along with photos of Sen. Murkowski and Sen. Begich (AK Democratic Senator), showing that they really do vote the same, and Murkowski’s votes and stance are far from Pro-Life and the Alaska Republican Platform. Everyone in attendance saw this truck, as did Murkowski, her name and face alongside the aborted fetus.

Have no doubt – Sarah Palin is the true conservative Pro-Life Alaskan. Murkowski, not so much.

UPDATE: I have received many comments through this blog, facebook, and email, and I’d like to address those. The focus of this article is Life and how two Alaskan women choose to support that Life. The focus of this article is not who attended the convention, or who some think should have attended, nor is it about a picture that some found offensive. I am offended that I have no true Republican representation from my Alaska Senator. I am offended that a sitting senator, who herself admitted has divided the state’s party, spoke at our convention. I am offended that this same senator has chosen not to defund Planned Parenthood, against our party’s platform. Even if federal dollars are not going to be used by Planned Parenthood for abortion services (which I believe they will), the mere fact that this organization exists to kill children is appalling. Are you saying it’s ok to fund an organization that performs thousands of abortions as long as they use the money we give them to buy dixie cups instead? Why is our federal government, that is bleeding profusely from every pore, funding any kind of organization like this? That was the point of my article. Senator Murkowski knows that the issue of Life is one of the strongest platforms our party stands on, and yet she chooses to fund an organization that is the biggest offender of this. She does not represent me. I appreciate all the ladies who were in attendance at the convention and their comments, but please look in the mirror and ask yourself where you stand. Do you stand with the Alaskan Republican Party and the principles upon which it stands? I’m tired of Republicans rolling over and compromising their principles in order to “get along” with everyone. Sarah Palin was correct when she said the GOP has the fighting instincts of sheep. Remember what our guest speaker Gisela said? We must stand up and not back down. We have to stand for what we believe in. And as I see it, Sen. Murkowski stood for what she believes in when she voted the way she did, and Sarah Palin choose to stand by her principles when she gave birth to Trig and continues to speak out about Life to this day. I’m glad Gov. Palin was not in attendance and chose instead to send a beautiful message to a much wider audience. Well done, Sarah Palin.

Governor Palin: Culture of Life and Rededication to God Needed in USA

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 6, 2010

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

While there are many things I respect about Governor Palin, at the top of that list is her unwavering stand for what she knows is right. While many Republicans have tried to distance themselves from the issue of life–back-tracking, watering down, remaining silent–for fear that this debate will cost us elections, Governor Palin never budges. She is true to her convictions. She sees a culture of life as essential, something that must be encouraged and embraced. She will not sell her soul for politics. We know that the majority of Americans stand with her on this issue, as the numbers indicate more of us are pro-life now than pro-abortion (or pro-choice as they like to call it). Governor Palin also never hides her Christian faith and belief that we certainly need God in America. Amen to that! She dealt with these issues in her Heroic Media keynote address in Houston last night.

According to CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby:

Sarah Palin starkly framed the midterm elections on Tuesday as a choice between political candidates who favor a “culture of life” and those on the opposite side of the issue wanting to implement “a culture of death.”

Palin, delivering a paid speech to an anti-abortion group in Texas, claimed that President Barack Obama oversaw “the biggest advance of the abortion industry in America” by signing landmark health care reform legislation that, she said, allows for taxpayer-funded abortions.

“That’s why it’s essential that we use the 2010 midterms to elect a Congress that will make undoing the damage of Obamacare its first priority,” she told an audience of more than 2,500 gathered at First Baptist Church of Houston, a megachurch on the city’s west side.

The former vice presidential candidate was speaking at an event sponsored by Heroic Media, an organization that runs ad campaigns urging women with unexpected pregnancies to seek counseling instead of abortions.

The evening’s focus was squarely on the topic of abortion, but Palin couldn’t resist veering into political territory several times during her nearly hour-long appearance.

She praised Texas’ Republican Gov. Rick Perry for his ferocious opposition to all things Washington and called Obama “the most pro-abortion president to ever occupy the White House,” reprising a line from similar speeches she has delivered across the country this year – sometimes for as much as $100,000 a pop.

[…]

Though the political right has largely been energized this year by fiscal issues and backlash against the Obama administration’s handling of the economy, the speech was a reminder of Palin’s deeply held conservative views on social issues.

Describing the Beck rally and its overtly revivalist tenor, Palin explained that “the answer to the challenges in our country are to restore honor and to rededicate our country to God and to serve our father God.”

Contrast Governor Palin’s position concerning abortion to President Obama’s. Watch the video below where he took too long to repeat the same old cliches about abortion, too long to only end up saying, “People still argue and disagree about it. That’s part of our Democratic way.” Unlike the President, Governor Palin knows that an unborn child is not some thing to be argued about. An unborn child is not to be thrown in the middle of the arena of our “Democratic way.” She understands that an unborn child is a life to be embraced, nurtured, and protected. And that is the humane way.

Gov. Palin’s Heroic Media Appearance in Houston

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 6, 2010

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

As I reported yesterday, Governor Palin spoke at a pro-life fundraiser last night in Houston, TX. As usual, attendees were glad to hear her speak and were moved by her message.

Below, watch Miya Shay‘s video report or read her account:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Sarah Palin spoke at Houston’s First Baptist Church, and she drew a crowd of the faithful, the Sarah Palin faithful.

Palin was brought to Houston by a private organization to drum up support for the pro-life movement. She certainly didn’t disappoint the audience of more than 1,000 strong who came to hear her speak.

Dressed in red, with a life-size cutout of Sarah Palin in tow, Jennifer McMillian Kramer wasn’t about to miss this event.

“We’re big supporters of Sarah Palin and what she stands for, what she believes in, her good conservative values, McMillian said. “We’re just happy to be here.”

Kramer wasn’t alone.

More than 1,000 people showed up at the event organized by Heroic Media, a group that promotes a pro-life message. It brought the former Alaska governor in to drum up support in Houston.

“When she speaks, people listen,” State Sen. Dan Patrick, (R-Harris County), said.

Palin was greeted with a standing ovation.

“Let me ask you, ‘Do you love your freedom?” Palin asked her audience.

And she sprinkled Texas throughout her speech.

“I know that your governor, he has been working tirelessly to protect your state from Obamacare, for one,” Palin said.

Keeping her audience in mind, Palin spoke extensively about the pro-life platform.

“I think no better place than here in Texas where you are making such good in-roads and good, positive progress on building that culture of life,” she said.

Members of the media were allowed to record only the first few minutes of her speech. However, attendees who stayed through the entire presentation said they got exactly what they were looking for.

“Oh I admire her,” Palin supporter Jan Lewellin said.

“She’s always an exciting speaker, and she always has something to say that’s worth listening to,” Palin supporter Riley Lewellin said.

Organizers estimate about 1,200 people attended Tuesday’s event. It wasn’t sold out, though. The sanctuary at First Baptist Church can hold up to 3,000 people.

However, Eyewitness News spoke to some other organizers of the conservative movement who say they’re already making plans to try to bring Palin back to an even bigger audience.

Gov. Palin: “How About Protecting Our Littlest Sisters in the Womb?”

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 27, 2010

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


Last night, Governor Palin spoke in Jacksonville, FL at a fundraiser for Heroic Media, a faith-based pro-life group. Thursday, of course, was Women’s Equality Day, which I addressed here.

Governor Palin’s own experience walking the walk is a testimony of strength and courage and is one reason so many women respect her–and also the reason so many Leftists despise her. Those in the room last night were obviously inspired by the Governor’s life story. Deirdre Conner shares:

Heroic Media, a faith-based group, is dedicated to buying ad space on television, websites and billboards to encourage women not to abort their babies.

Mark Nelson, the Florida director for the group, said it is aiming to raise about $150,000 to buy ad spots over a 10-week period in Jacksonville. The group said on Thursday that it has raised about $50,000 toward that effort.

Palin said that after her experience learning that her son, Trig, who was born with Down syndrome – as well as her daughter Bristol’s unplanned pregnancy – gave her better insight into what women go through when having a baby under “less than ideal circumstances.” And, the former Alaska governor said, it deepened her belief that activism is needed to let women know that they are capable of motherhood, no matter what the challenges.

Concerning faux women’s groups that are more interested in a woman’s “right” to abort her child than truly empowering that woman or that child, the Governor asked:

How about protecting our littlest sisters in the womb on equality day?”
