As a mother of a teenage daughter the same age as Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter, I have to ask, “How did that abstinence talk work for you?” I am pro-choice, and my daughter and I had “the talk.”
Anyone who believes that sex education is not important and that young adults will not engage in sexual activity because we told them not to is not being realistic. Back in the day, when a woman was pregnant, she married because she had to.
Palin is not a role model for my daughters. My girls are aware of the need for contraceptives, birth control and the consequences of an unplanned pregnancy.
