Hollywood, CA (LifeNews.com) — Actress Lindsay Lohan is the latest member of the Hollywood elite to attack vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Lohan complains that Palin wants to protect women and children from abortion and urges her fans on her Myspace blog to support pro-abortion candidate Barack Obama.
"I really cannot bite my tongue anymore when it comes to Sarah Palin," Lohan writes in a Sunday post. "I couldn’t be more supportive of a woman in office, but let’s face it, it comes down to the person, and their beliefs, male or female."
"I feel it’s necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman," Lohan adds, referring to the national news Palin has received about her decision to keep her disabled baby rather than have an abortion.
Still, Lohan goes after Palin on abortion.
"Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies… And its frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that," she writes.
The blog post has sparked a huge response on the Internet and more than 1,200 comments have been posted on Lohan’s blog.
Lohan joins other Hollywood actors in supporting Obama and bashing Palin, or her presidential running mate John McCain on abortion.
Last week, "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg, a long-time member of the Planned Parenthood board of advisors, attacked McCain on his saying he would appoint judges who wouldn’t make up the law from the bench.
She made the wild-eyed accusation that McCain wants to go back to the days when African-Americans were slaves and asked incredulously: "Should I be worried about being a slave or a return to slavery?"
Before that, British comedian Russell Brand included an attack on Palin over abortion in his monologue at the MTV Video Music Awards that even MTV officials said was over the top.
"They asked me to tone down the gags about Sarah Palin," he told the London Telegraph about his planned line. "I wanted to say she was forcing her teenage daughter to have a baby because she is so anti-abortion."
"But also, as a Republican she is pro-execution so she is going to give her the electric chair for being a little slut," Brand said he planned to say. "They weren’t keen on that one."
Earlier this month, Sex and the City actor David Eigenberg, who plays bartender Steve Brady on the program, stumped for Barack Obama and said he backs abortion.
Eigenberg hadn’t been politically active until recently, when he learned that Obama is pro-abortion — a position that matches his own.
The actor campaigned for the presidential hopeful in Wisconsin and joined pro-abortion Rep. Betty McCollum of Minnesota and NARAL president Nancy Keenan for an event.
