Extra Chromosomes and Mama Grizzlies: Sarah Palin Negotiating Down Syndrome as a Political Mother

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In 2008, when Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin was introduced to the U.S political scene, there was emphasis on her position as a mother of a child with Down syndrome. Palin received both criticism and praise for bringing her youngest child out into the public arena, making visible his developmental differences. She became a contentious spokesperson for families with special needs, aligning her in uneasy ways with bioethicists, disability rights activists, feminists, and conservative anti-abortionists.
