Bristol Palin: Abstinence, Schmastinence!

by at . Comments

We don't know if she'd shoot wolves out of a helicopter, or refer to a progressive tax system as "socialist," but Bristol Palin appears far more grounded in reality than her mother on at least one topic:

Teenage sex.

While Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has attempted to pass legislation that teaches abstinence in school, Bristol appeared on Fox News this week and said that such a view is "not realistic at all."

What else did the new mother of Tripp Johnston have to say to Greta Van Susteren? Various excerpts, along with staff commentary, appear below:

On getting knocked up: "Everyone should wait 10 years.. I hope people learn from my story... It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career."

On having Tripp: "It was my choice to have the baby. It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision, making me a model for the pro-choice argument, but don't tell my mom that, as such logic would confuse her belief that pro-choice equals pro-death."

Bristol Palin held son Tripp during a Fox News interview in which she scoffed at the notion that you can prevent teens from having sex.

On Levi Johnston as a father: He's a "hands-on dad, especially since he was forced to quit his job on an oil field because my mother may have illegally helped him land it."

On marrying Levi: "Eventually we'd like to get married, but my mom isn't a candidate for Vice President anymore, so we can stop pretending like this was the plan all along."

On being a mother:
"I love it, just seeing him smile and stuff. It's awesome."

Governor Palin shows up near the conclusion of the interview, holding little Tripp, and says:  "Hey, life happens when you spend all your time giving your children goofy names instead of teaching them about contraception."

Bristol Palin Quotes

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
