The pro-life beliefs of vice-presidential hopeful Gov. Sarah Palin are resonating with families that have special-needs children.
David Madeira of Lehman Township, Pa., brought his 4-year-old son, Nicholas, to hear Palin speak in Scranton on Tuesday. Nicholas, the fifth child of six, has Down syndrome.
So does Trig, Palin's infant son.
Palin told the Scranton crowd special-needs children “can inspire a special love — a love this world needs more of.”
Madeira told The Times Leader: "As a father of a special-needs child, I’m delighted she’s bringing attention to that.”
Andi and Ed Potter of Greentown, Pa., also support Palin’s pro-life stance because they have a child who is physically challenged.
Palin told NBC's Today show she has an automatic bond with these families.
"We can just look at each other in the eyes and say, ‘I know and you know, and we’re all in this together,' " she said.
