Hayden Panettiere & Bristol Palin battle teen pregnancy

Hayden Panettiere and Bristol Palin joined forces on Wednesday for National Teen Pregnancy Awareness Day in NYC sponsored by The Candies Foundation. It was an unlikely matchup considering Hayden campaigned for Obama while Bristol’s uterus sunk her mother’s entire political career. Us Magazine reports:

“It’s very nice that she’s come out to support this, and it’s nice to have her,” Panettiere said. “Teenagers get to look at her, and she can say, ‘This happened to me.’ This is all politics aside. She is just a girl out here saying, ‘Look, it happened to me — it can happen to you.'”
Although Panettiere didn’t promote abstinence, she said she believes teens should be responsible.
“There’s a lot of different viewpoints on sex, and I’m not someone who will ever boo-hoo anything or say, ‘This is not right,’ or, ‘This is wrong,'” she said. “You’re going to do what you’re going to do, but at the end of the day, it’s okay as long as you educate yourself, as long as you’re safe, as long as you’re smart.”

You know what would unite this country? If Bristol picked up Hayden and carried her in a Baby Bjorn. Now that’s a photo op you can believe in. Also, anyone who’s about to suggest some sort of breast-feeding transpire, stop reading my mind loving America so much.
