Most compelling reason why Mc Cain & Palin wins, women lose

At least to me, this is the most compelling reason... Voting AGAINST 'Violence Against Women's Act'.

This piece of news is shocking to me.

Sarah Palin charges rape victims for "Rape Kits" - forensics evidence collected in rape cases. Her job is to protect women not traumatized these women more!

Apart from that, she also opposes abortion even in the case of rape and incest. Abortion should be made legal in cases as such! This is obviously a case of a woman here that is not loving women! Ridiculous!

Initially when Mc Cain introduced Palin as his running mate, I was pretty sure that this move was to attract women voters like the way Hillary did. But I was wrong! Sarah Palin does not love women!
