Palin’s daughter gets pregnant, chooses life
September 1, 2008
Well, that’s kind of a bombshell: Sarah Palin’s daughter is pregnant. Guess that absolutely positively shoots down the weird pregnancy smear. Will this hurt her politically? I’m thinking not. Nor should it. Unplanned teen pregnancy is not unheard of in this country. Any family could face this crisis, even conservative Christian families. I’ve known some myself. The question is: how do you deal with it?
Bristol Palin is not going to abort her unborn child. She’s going to keep the baby and marry the father. Good for her. It shouldn’t have happened, but it did happen, and now she’s going to do the right thing — the hard thing. Again: good. Mother and child — and father — need support.
