Bristol Palin shoots down abstinence-only education
Bristol Palin, everyone’s favorite unwed teenage mom (Jamie Lynn who?), sat down with FOX News last night and dropped two major bombs. Governor Palin’s daughter made Rupert Murdoch’s head explode by saying sexual abstinence is unrealistic and that every woman should have the right to choose. NY Daily News reports:
Stopping teen sex? Ain’t gonna happen.
So says Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, who told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Monday night that the abstinence her mom preaches is “not realistic at all.”
Bristol Palin, who gave birth in late December, described the rigors of being a teen mom, and while she wouldn’t go into detail why it isn’t realistic for guys and gals her age not to have sex, she did say it isn’t smart to get knocked up.
“Everyone should wait 10 years,” Palin said. “I hope people learn from my story. It’s so much easier if you’re married, have a house and career. It’s not a situation you want to strive for.”
She denied that her mother’s anti-abortion views were the reason she went ahead with the pregnancy.
“It was my choice to have the baby,” she said. “It doesn’t matter what my mom’s views are on it. It was my decision.”
Jesus. Giving an interview with logical, effectively communicated answers? At this point Bristol Palin might as well have peed on the Bible then joined PETA because she’s out of the family. They’re probably dog-sledding her out to an igloo as we speak. Facts based on real-world scenarios. Ha! Adorable.
