Like the writer, this comment made me laugh quite a bit as well. It also makes me rather incredulous that you think the only way to have avoided that was to kill something. That might even be more hilarious!
No, I agree... it could have been avoided if her daughter had not had sex in the first place or had even used some sort of birth control!! But yes, since she was already pregnant... killing it would have been to change things. Which is totally sick and wrong. Abortion is wrong.
actually, I don't think she is embarraced by her 17 year old daughter being pregnant, it is just something she and her family is dealing with. And as far as it affecting her campaign, it only shows that she truely believes in the pro-life stance, EVEN when it affects her personally.
