“I’m pro-contraception, and I think kids who may not hear about it at home should hear about it in other avenues. So I am not anti-contraception. But, yeah, abstinence is another alternative that should be discussed with kids. I don’t have a problem with that. That doesn’t scare me, so it’s something I would support also.”
I put that right at the top of the post so you wouldn’t miss it.
The Letterman embroglio is giving the faux feminists another opportunity to spread lies about Sarah Palin. According to them, Palin is some kind of hypocritical purity queen, and as such, she and her family are fair game:
By dragging Willow into the dust-up, the Palins are again able to divert attention away from the real issues involving their oldest daughter. Bristol is an 18-year-old unmarried mother who is going through baby-daddy drama. As such, her life mocks the family values conservatives such as her mother preach.
First of all, Sarah Palin doesn’t preach anything. As for what she believes, look at the top of the post! See? See the words, “I’m pro-contraception, and I think kids who may not hear about it at home should hear about it in other avenues”?
For the record, this bleeding heart liberal had exactly the same view of contraception and abstinence as Sarah Palin when raising my daughter. I told her that waiting was better because sex really does complicate things, but if she couldn’t then practice safe sex and use contraception.
