See how Palin supports other young mothers--or not.  
Palin reduced funds to help teenage mothers receive transitional care.

Palin cut these funds by 20 per cent:

According to Passage House's web site, its purpose is to provide "young mothers a place to live with their babies for up to eighteen months while they gain the necessary skills and resources to change their lives" and help teen moms "become productive, successful, independent adults who create and provide a stable environment for themselves and their families."

The Post is wrong on this one

The Post did not take into account that the funding left intact by Gov. Palin was a threefold increase in their prior funding levels. She increased spending, not slashed it.

She decreased the amount they would have otherwise received, even if the amount they did receive was still an increase over previous funding. I stand by my post.

Btw, you really don't need to waste time coming to my modest little blog. It's hardly well known or influential.
