"I believe in the basic idea that federal dollars shouldn't pay for abortions, but I also think we shouldn't restrict womans choices"
Isn't this talking out of both sides of his mouth?
Quote right out of his mouth. From his interview with Major on Fox news.
So why are people worried about Palin talking in circles when we have a President who does?

The bill cannot take away a woman's right to abortion, period. It can only effect who pays for the abortion. The "but" in his sentence bothers me. That is where the contradiction comes into play. It IS double-talk. Now he can claim either side of the fence.

It's a non answer. He can't answer it the way some of us would like because it will probably end up in the bill again. He doesn't go into detail expanding beyond the 'basid idea that federal dollars shouldn't pay for abortion'. I think it's his way of saying 'If a woman wants an abortion and can't afford one, I think government should pay for it'. I can't imagine what else the comment about not 'restricting choices' is about unless he is talking about not banning all abortion (which isn't even on the table - so this is a non issue).
Just another politician talking in circles around the real answer.

Quick google search found that taxpayers are already paying for abortions:http://www.prochoice.org/about_abortion/facts/public_funding.html
