Gov. Palin, who backed an abstinence-only sex education program when she ran for governor in 2006, told Van Susteren to expect abstinence from all teenagers was "not realistic." "Get beyond the ideal of abstinence," the 44 year old, new grandmother said. "Hey, life happens. Not the most ideal situation, certainly you make the most of it," said the governor.
TG: I agree things don't always work according to plan, but that is no reason to trash the plan. Just because some don't reach the ideal of abstinence doesn't mean we shouldn't still strive for it. We don't succeed with all murderers or rapists either. Should we just "get beyond the idea of preventing murder and rape"?
Bristol Palin said she is getting help from many members of her family with raising the infant while continuing her studies. She told Van Susteren she has no immediate plans to marry Levi Johnson, who she described as a 'hands on Dad." Last year, there were reports that the couple would marry in the coming year.
TG: But during the campaign, they were on the fast track to the altar. Now there are no plans to get married. Also, as you can see from the photo above and the link below, Bristol is also a boozer, even hitting the hooch while pregnant.
