    Abstinence 'is not realistic,' Palin's daughter says
    Posted: 10:43 AM ET

    From CNN Associate Producer Martina Stewart


    Palin says she and Johnston still plan to wed.
    (CNN) – In her first interview since giving birth to son Tripp, Bristol Palin, daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said it’s not “realistic” to expect abstinence outside of marriage.

    “Everyone should be abstinent . . . but it’s not realistic at all,” the 18-year-old told Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, adding that having sex as a teenager had become “more and more accepted now” among people her age.

    The new mother, who gave birth to Gov. Palin’s first grandchild late last year, said her decision to go forward with an unplanned pregnancy was entirely her own.

    Hindsight is 20/20.

    :disbelief: :lol:

    Besides in some of those cults, you can become a born again virgin. There is even a church ceremont for it! My sister worked with a guy whose daughter did it.

    I bet Alaska is just as bad as Kansas was for being a boring place to grow up. But seriously if you're going to do it you both need to be taking measures to prevent pregnancy... unless of course you want to have a baby.

    who cares what a 17 year old girl has to say?

    humans have been fucking and having kids sine the dawn of time. SO WHAT!

    Maybe if we let these young adults have to live with the consequences of their actions, you know no free abortions, no safe haven laws, etc.

    If you get pregnant, YOU pay for your own fucking mistake. Then I'll bet you teen pregnancy rates will fall faster than the stock market.

    Only if you make sure the boys involved get their share of the consequences. That is the primary reason we have abortion, guys that won't man up and take responsibility.

    Then you just go back to back alley abortions and I'm highly doubting all those doctors who do abortions will all of a sudden stop when it can become highly profitable.

    And then you have the guys that want the baby and the woman still aborts. Face it, in this case, women have all the rights, guys have none. If she has the baby, he's forced to pay child support even if he didn't want the baby. She can abort the baby even if he does want the baby. Nope, it's not fair. Women are the only ones who can decide legally not to be a parent AFTER conception.

    My biggest gripe is that the deciding factor on whether it's a baby or a fetus is strictly at the mother's choosing.
