Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign...
I just seriously don't even know what to say about this.
The problem obviously isn't her having the kid -- I'm pro-choice. She's a woman, even if she's 17, and I'm hoping the decision was left up to her (I'll keep my doubts on that score to myself).
The problem is -- five months pregnant? How are we just now dealing with this? Why is Bristol afraid to tell her parents about this before now? What kind of family values do we have in this house? What kind of judgment have we been teaching our kids? Also, how's this seventeen year old not being taught about birth control? (Or is that something Ms. Sarah Feminist for Life Palin also doesn't believe in? Was Bristol supposed to Just Say No? Did she get the Abstinence Only Sex-Ed?)
Also, what kind of tool is John McCain, who claims he knew about Bristol's pregnancy (yeah, I believe it too) and chose Palin anyway.
I could go on, but I'll leave further objections to the class.
