Second-guessing Palin’s pregnancy

All caveats on this chart criticizing Sarah Palin’s decision to fly home and have her fifth baby in “a podunk hospital outside Wasilla.”

This was linked by a “progressive” blogger who cites it as evidence of Palin’s flawed “judgment.” I remind you that, if it were up to the “judgment” of progressives, the pregnancy would have ended in abortion. I’m sure we’re all so touched by progressive concern for the well-being of baby Trig.

It was Palin’s fifth child. As a father of six, I can tell you that women who’ve been through a few childbirths become rather adept at judging the progress of labor. My wife used to work in the obstetric ward of a hospital. Any ob veteran will tell you that first-time mothers are notorious for false alarms or arriving at the hospital too early and then wallowing in labor for 36 hours, whereas more experienced moms are much better at waiting until the labor is well-advanced before going to the hospital.

There is not a scintilla of evidence that Trig was harmed because Palin returned home for the birth, and the continuing repetition of this bogus meme by the leftosphere is disgusting.
