Hate to break it to you Fred, but Bristol's point is crystal-clear - simply telling teenagers to abstain from sex until marriage is completely unrealistic.
In November 2007, 10 leading scientists in the field of adolescent sexual and reproductive health warned that abstinence-only education withholds “information that may be critical to protecting the health of young people.” This past April, health experts told Congress that abstinence-only education programs “have not cut teen pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases or delayed the age at which sex begins.”
This, as with the overtly creepy and fawning coverage that Greta Van Susteren gives the Palin's, is a classic case of Fox"News" trying to polish the image of this family in an attempt to make them into this shining example for all to follow.
Like it or not, the Palin's are hardly an example which others should strive for.
Bristol, in her own right, actually seemed rather straight-forward and unfiltered in her interview - for a moment. And while we're on the subject, some conservatives are not happy with the fact that Bristol got some face-time on Fox.
More on that later today
