It looks like Bristol Palin isn’t the mother of Trig Palin. However, that story did have an element of truth it it, in that there were descriptions of Bristol being off school because she’s pregnant, and descriptions of her looking pregnant. Anyway, Sarah Palin is now saying Bristol is pregnant:
The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, McCain aides said.
“We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,” the Palins’ statement said.
“Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support,” the Palins said.
I wonder if there are any statements on record from Palin or McCain condemning sex outside marriage? I don’t think it’s wrong, and if Bristol Palin wants to have sex that’s not a problem with me at all — in fact good luck to her; however there are those on the Republican right who think sex outside marriage is wrong.
