I saw a post on Jill Stanek’s website a few months ago from a pro life group:
My name is Randy Avila and I live in Los Angeles. I lead an organization that peacefully and prayerfully protests the many abortion clinics around Los Angeles county. I work with the East Los Angeles Pregnancy Center (ELAPC) and Los Angeles Pregnancy Services (LAPS) which are crisis pregnancy centers, essentially the antithesis of Planned Parenthood. However, the advocacy arm of the movement is Pro-Life California, who facilitates the daily protests. They all work in cohesion, it’s really wonderful.
I just wanted to pass on an interesting conversation I had today with some folks on the street.
I was stationed in Boyle Heights, which is a very poor neighborhood in the heart of Los Angeles. As we prayed in front on the clinic, we were holding signs that depicted aborted babies. This group of Latinos (pure Spanish speaking) approached us and said:
[INDENT]“Este es Obama. Él lo admite. Yo voté por él, todos lo hicimos. No sabíamos que apoya esto. Nunca se nos dijo. No hablar de esto. Creímos en él, pero ahora sabemos mejor. Todos hablamos de él, mis amigos, mi familia, mis vecinos. Todos dicen lo mismo. Necesitamos Sarah Palin. Ella no hace este tipo de cosas y sabe qué hacer. Todos la aman.”
Which translates to:
“This is Obama. He supports this. I voted for him, we all did. We didn’t know he supported this. We were never told. He didn’t talk about this. We believed in him but now we know better. We all talk about it, my friends, my family, my neighbors. We all say the same thing. We need Sarah Palin. She doesn’t do this kind of stuff and she knows what to do. We all love her.”
Sarah has a great following in the Latino community because of her background and her traditional values. Of course, this isn’t being reported and these people are not being polled. Who would have thought that in the heart of Los Angeles, the “ghettos” that Sarah is so respected and supported.
Keep up the good work.[/INDENT]
I think there are people who didn’t research what Obama’s views were on all the issues, they just saw Obama through the mainstream media view.
