Sarah Palin in Houston: ‘Every child has purpose’

Palin mixes politics and motherhood at Houston fundraiser

“I won’t get too political tonight, but I just can’t help it sometimes,” a smiling Sarah Palin told a Houston audience Tuesday night, shortly before lighting into what she called “the mother of all unfunded mandates called Obamacare” and “the most pro-abortion president ever to occupy the White House.”

Speaking for nearly 50 minutes to an audience of approximately 1,000 people at Houston’s First Baptist Church, Palin also shared what she called “a little bit of my testimony” about being the mother of a child born with Down syndrome.

She also spoke about her daughter Bristol’s experience as a single mother at 17.

The event was a fundraiser for Austin-based Heroic Media, a nonprofit advertising group that develops mass-media campaigns aimed at persuading women not to have abortions. The group was founded in 2004 by retired businessman Brian Follett, who originally named it after St. Gerard Majella, patron saint of pregnant women.

“Understand that Obamcare violates a lot of things — like the commerce clause in our Constitution and the will of the people,” Palin said. “And it violates our conscience when it comes to funding abortion.”

Palin also urged her audience to support Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who “has been working tirelessly to protect you all from Obamacare.”
