Bristol Palin: 'Abstinence Didn't Work for Me!'

Hoping to set an example for others with her own experience, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol would like to become an advocate for preventing teen pregnancy.

"Everyone should wait 10 years," the younger Palin told Greta Van Susteren on a FOX News segment that aired Monday night. "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."

Palin, 18, also said in the interview -- her first since the teen made headlines last summer during Sarah Palin's GOP vice-presidential campaign -- that her mother's view of abstinence, especially in regard to teenagers, is "not realistic at all."

Bristol further stated that although her mother is an outspoken Right to Life advocate, "It was my choice to have the baby. It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision."

Recounting how she first informed her parents, Todd and Sarah Palin, of her condition, Bristol said she gathered her boyfriend, Levi Johnston, and her best friend, but that getting the words out of her mouth was "harder than labor."

The friend broke the news to the parents, said Bristol, who also described Johnston as a "hands-on dad." She added, "Eventually we'd like to get married."

As for her new situation, "I like being a mom," said Bristol. "I love it, just seeing him smile and stuff. It's awesome."

Appearing late in the interview, carrying her grandson Tripp Johnston, Gov. Palin said, "Hey, life happens." Of her unwed, teenage daughter's pregnancy, she said, "Not the most ideal situation, certainly you make the most of it."

phen375 review January 6, 2011, 3:11 PM

Ladies in general usually are not seeking to drop substantial amounts of weight generally. A lot of the men and women using phen375 are only looking to drop A few in order to 25 weight typically as well as typically its belly fat. Most are healthy, go to the health club kind people. They just haven’t been in a position to drop body fat on their tummy or reach any Plato. Abdominal fat issues typically begin to take place for women at about the time of or even right after child birth and later on inside age group pre and post being menopausal. It appears going to females although presently there hormonal levels tend to be transforming; it’s a normal means of life or perhaps is this? My goal is to demonstrate how the real fat kept in the actual tummy or belly location differs and the much more you have of it the actual whores the hormonal disproportion will become.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Great article. Unfortunately it’s all ruined by your use of the horrendous phrase

This site seems to recieve a great deal of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It offers a nice unique twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to post about is the most important thing.

Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.

Hi there, - stumbled upon this website unintentionally when looking round the web this evening, and delighted that i did! I do like the style and design and tones, but I need to point out that I’m having problems when it loads. I’m making use of WaMCom 1.1 browser for mac, and the menu block doesn’t lineup well. i’m convinced applied an equivalent layout on a customer’s online site, but the menu seems okay on mine. I imagine the problem is with my browser and I suppose today’s the day to update!
