Life Issues Institute is pleased to comment on Senator John McCain’s choice for his vice presidential running mate. After a morning of swirling speculation, McCain’s campaign confirmed Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as the republican vice presidential candidate for 2008. Governor Sarah Palin is Alaska’s first female governor, the mother of five — and at 44 is Alaska’s youngest chief executive. Governor Palin is also considered a rising star in the Republican Party and known for her strong pro-life stand.
Executive Director of Life Issues Institute, Bradley Mattes, said this about the selection, “Senator McCain made the best choice possible for a vice presidential running mate. Governor Palin is a rock-solid pro-life advocate for the unborn.”
Dr. Willke, President of Life Issues Institute, continued, “Governor Sarah Palin, not only decided to give birth to her fifth child recently knowing that ‘Trig’ had Down syndrome; she used the event to emphatically speak out for life. As a woman, independent Republican, strong pro-lifer and a fresh face, she will certainly help the McCain ticket.”
Welcoming their child, Governor Palin and her family expressed their joy, “Trig is beautiful and already adored by us. We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed.”
We compliment Senator McCain for a wise and refreshing choice for his running mate.
