Why is Bristol Palin the Story? Outrageous!


First. Bristol Palin REALLY should stop talking about birth control. She could make the most eloquent and intelligent statement of all time and still no one will take her seriously at this point. It isn’t that she has been a teenage mother. It isn’t that she is pregnant with her second child out of wedlock. It is that she is a hypocrit and a liar. She doesn’t practice what she preaches and judges others for what she does. Plain and simple. So Huffington Post, you should also do us a favor and quit writing about her. She isn’t the story here.
This is the real story. This program is successful? How many 10 year olds were pregnant before this program began? 11 year olds? 12? When you are treating children that young with or without parental consent, no matter the form of birth control, this is absolutely the definition of a bandaid fix. 10 year old girls are most likely not having sex with 10 year old boys. Is your goal truly only to keep these children from getting pregnant? How about allowing these children to actually be children. Are social services called in? Are these cases investigated? Or is this truly a don’t ask, don’t tell policy? You just set these 10, 11, and 12 year old girls up with an IUD, give them a lollipop and send them on their merry way. Your goal is accomplished. They won’t have a child. They are in all likelihood  being abused, molested, raped, possibly in the sex industry, they have no chance at a normal life and will not be able to psychologically cope with the trauma, but your program is a success because they won’t get pregnant. Back to Bristol. Great coverage HuffPost.
