Yet another Palin fact-check

Over this weekend, Sarah Palin alleged that Barack Obama's views on abortion are extreme and radical. However, last I checked, most women (and most people) supported abortion rights with many of the late-term restrictions that Barack Obama supports.

I think Sarah Palin is confused about who the extremist is, here.

Again, last time I checked, people who opposed abortion rights even in the case of rape or incest were in the minority - typically less than 20 percent of the nation.

Palin claims that "He hopes you won't notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea is on this . . . until it's too late." She's apparently trying to delude Americans into thinking that Obama would sweep away all abortion regulations entirely - maybe even go out and perform them himself.

However, I think many Americans have already noticed how radical she is, and realize what rights would be lost across America, if she were to become president. At that point, it certainly would be too late for all women in America who must, absolutely must, have the ability to exercise choice in their lives.

Palin is a liar, pure and simple.
