Here’s a shocker for you: the mainstream media is raking Bristol Palin over the coals again. This time, though, it’s not because she had a child as an unmarried teenager, or even because her mother is one of the most formidable (and charming) enemies of the Left. It’s because she’s supporting abstinence for teens.
Apparently Bristol said in an interview a while back that teen abstinence is “unrealistic.” So, obviously, she’s going against her word – and revealing a shockingly depraved moral character – by encouraging it anyway.
Curing cancer in the next few years is unrealistic. So let’s just not bother trying. Stopping crime is unrealistic. So why don’t we let all the murderers run free and keep killing people?
I’m pretty sure that when Bristol said “unrealistic,” she meant that it’s impossible to stop all teenagers everywhere from having sex before marriage. (From the conversations I hear around my college campus, I’m regrettably inclined to agree.) But if just a few abortions can be prevented, if just a few girls can be saved from growing up too soon, then we have done something right.
