It seems that it has been confirmed by the Palin family and the McCain staff that Sara and Todd Palin's 17 year old, Bristol, is pregnant. Hmmmm....
Seems people are vilifying this poor teen. Seems that this is fuel for the folks who oppose abstinence-based teaching and pro-life beliefs. Hmmmm....
Again, I am mystified.
Who doesn't know a pregnant teen? Not hardly an unusual occurrence in our society. Many (most?) keep their baby. Many (most?) do not believe in abstinence only practices. But they still conceive babies.
While a teen pregnancy is often unplanned and perhaps, unfortunate, having a supportive family is the best possible framework for assisting one's daughter.
Bristol Palin has the support of her family during this time. Thank God and ho hum (insert yawn and stretch).
A pregnant teen can and does happen to 'every family'. A baby is a blessing, created by God. Always.
God allows free will. Our country allows abortion on demand. But, as with many things, just because we can, doesn't mean we should.
Again, viewing the woman that Sara Palin is, is like looking in the mirror, people.
Like looking in the mirror.
