Sarah Palin made a number of proclamations when she was governor, but some of them don't apply to her at all. This post is going to highlight only the proclamations concerning childbirth issues. There are other proclamations that conflict with the quitter governor's attitudes and I'll talk about them in a future post.
Trisomy Awareness Month February 25, 2009
WHEREAS, trisomy pregnancies can present unusual complications and can be more at-risk than non-trisomy pregnancies.
Prematurity Awareness Month October 10, 2007
WHEREAS, premature babies are at increased risk for newborn health complications, as well as lasting disabilities, such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, lung and gastrointestinal problems, vision and hearing loss, and even death.
Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week January 30, 2007
Cardiovascular birth defects are the most frequently reported major congenital anomalies in Alaska, with congenital heart defects affecting two percent of Alaska live births annually during 1996-2002. Low birth weight Alaskan infants were seven times more likely to have a congenital heart defect than a normal weight infant.
Two out of these three proclamations were made before Trig's birth, so on April 17, 2008, Sarah Palin was aware of the risks of prematurity and heart defects affecting newborn babies, but chose to have her labour/not labour while leaking/not leaking aboard an aeroplane.
That's why the pregnancy and the labour stories ring false to Trig Truthers. The laws of nature only apply to other people. Sarah Palin's tight abs prevented the growth of a pregnancy bump while very fit celebrities have failed in that respect, with abs that were shamefully not tight enough so they actually looked very pregnant.
The same goes for high risk pregnancies. Only other people have to worry about taking certain steps to ensure the safe delivery of their babies. Sarah can leak, give speeches, fly for hours on end and that's perfectly OK.
Whereas a governor of state who lies for political gain is not to be trusted.
Whereas not everybody is stupid and gullible.
Whereas the laws of nature apply to all members of the human species.
I hereby proclaim Sarah Palin a bare faced liar and a hypocrite.
