Palin “Medical Records” Released…

A two page letter from Sarah Palin’s doctor…yep, that’s it. Read it for yourself. Does she think this is releasing your medical records? That’s like saying a book report is the same as the book.
The letter was written by friend and doctor of Governor Palin. The 48-year-old doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson was nominated by the Alaska Chapter of AAFP, which had presented her with the Alaska Family Physician of the Year award for 2001.” Letters of recommendation came from a variety of people, including the mayor of Wasilla and a commissioner for the state of Alaska.”

A few babies later…Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson of Wasilla is a private practice family physician and the 2002 National Family Physician of the Year from the American Academy of Family Physicians. In 1999, Baldwin-Johnson co-founded and is the volunteer medical director of The Children’s Place, and since 2005 has served as a consultant and trainer on child abuse issues. Baldwin-Johnson graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine where she participated in the WWAMI Medical School program. Governor Palin appointed Baldwin-Johnson in May of 2007 to Alaska Health Care Strategies Planning Council.

This story just keeps getting weirder.

Last spring there was the big announcement of Sarah Palin’s 5th pregnancy. I’m pro choice, happy she was able to make whatever choice was best for her family. With her oldest child in the military, three more at home, and one on the way, she was getting quite a bit done. I would have wanted a nap and a spa, but that’s just me. In the last few weeks of her pregnancy she was flying all over the country. She flew to Washington D.C. then off to a conference of Republican Governors in Dallas. Her water broke in Texas. She decided to fly back to Alaska to have her 5th child that she knew had Downs Syndrome. She passed up some of the finest children’s hospitals in Dallas, Seattle and Anchorage. She flew several hours and then drove 50 miles to her home town and had her baby. I admire her ability to hold a child in during all those hours and miles above the Earth while she was in labor. I’m impressed with her staunch Alaskan loyalty to deliver her baby on Native Soil. Her explanation of coming home while in labor was a joke. No, a real one. “You can’t have a fish picker from Texas,” said Todd Palin. But had I been traveling on the way to take a loved one off life support, or attend a wedding, or job interview, or any of the other major life events that we commute on planes for, and was diverted by a woman who knowingly got on board after her water broke, I may not admire her uterine control so much. Her lack of judgment for fellow passengers seems obvious, but for someone who is so “pro-life” it seems reckless.

The two page report from Palin’s doctor is an example of how she keeps a promise to “release her medical records.” Just think what she would do to uphold her oath to the Constitution.



  1. IF Sarah Palin believes that a person’s life starts at conception, she should be charged with child endangerment for getting on that plane.

    I would like to know what some other doctors think of her little trip home from Texas.

    Also, I’m sure that she is aware of the rules that airlines have about pregnancy. How honest was she getting on that plane?

  2. The story Palin gave about the Texas trip shocked me. My experience during both my pregnancies-my water broke with both at 8 months. I remember sitting on towels for a few hours before labor pains began.

    Of course, all people are different..but getting in and out of vehicles, walking around airports, on and off planes, and than driving a vehicle for miles…not to mention putting on all those seat belts after the water broke…I am still shaking my head.

  3. I wonder if she has any mental health issues? Narssistic Personality Disorder, perhaps? hmmmmmm

  4. I have always had doubts about that story. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Never has. I am not the only one either. This lady is a medical professional and her husband is a doctor. She has doubts also. She lays out her case and examines it. It is quite extensive. Also, that is supposedly the only reason why Bristol got thrown under the bus at the Convention, was to stop the rumors about Trig’s birth and parentage. But those rumors started in Alaska, so you all know them better than I do. Here is the link to the web site. She really does make some pretty compelling arguments.

  5. I have serious doubts that this is really a child she birthed. Serious. After talking with two of my clients, one a long-time midwife and the other an OB-GYN with tons of high risk pregnancy experience. I frankly don’t believe she actually gave birth to this child.

  6. Someone should seriously and I mean seriously, consider filing a complaint against Dr Baldwin Johnson’s medical license. Her alledged advice to Palin to fly back to Alaska is wrong, negligent or malpractice or Something!!Personally I believe Palin did not birth Trig. The poor doctor just weakly agreed to play along in my opinion.

  7. The birth year 2000 is wrong. Piper was born in 2001.

    This is a pretty big mistake. What else is wrong?

  8. People who give atention to atention seekers like Mrs Palin will only help to increse the poor behaviours. If you just ignore what ever comes from her, her interviews, sad writings, manipulated stories………………………….. then she might learn that after all she is not so bright, truthful, or interesting.
