London, May 15 (ANI): Sarah Palin has compared Republican women supporters to 'mama grizzlies' who are going to help the Republicans reclaim their former glory by electing anti-abortion lawmakers.
In yet another one of Palin's colourful allegorical references, the vocal pro-life campaigner and ex-Alaska Governor exhorted women to display their fierce side. She also recalled a previous speech in which she had likened herself to a pit-bull.
"You don't want to mess with moms who are rising up. If you thought pit bulls were tough, you don't want to mess with mama grizzlies." The Telegraph quoted her, as saying.
Addressing an anti-abortion group, Palin said she could relate to the dilemma faced by pregnant women because of her personal experiences as the mother of a child afflicted by Down's Syndrome and parent of an unwed teen mother.
She even admitted how she had considered abortion for a "fleeting moment" after she learned of her son's Down's Syndrome prognosis, nevertheless she chose not to terminate the pregnancy, as it was contrary to her core beliefs.
Palin said that carrying the foetus its full term "may not be the easiest path, but it's always the right path," the paper reports. (ANI)
