Did you see this: http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSN2944356420080901?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&rpc=22&sp=true

I saw it at Dawn's first, and it does seem to settle this question...

Thanks for posting this. It pisses me off!

Did you also see Ibbaanika and Craig pose the question to McCain of how will he help Natural Families?

Now the Palins have busted out the news that Bristol is *currently* (and conveniently) 5 months pregnant. Interesting!

Conveniently? I'd say it's actually probably not very convenient to have your teen daughter pregnant when you're running for VP on an abstinence only platform. What did they force her to get pregnant again immediately after giving birth to cover up the first pregnancy?

I don't actually think it is true but I am disgusted by a minor's private life being forced into national news for political reasons. But aside from that her daughter is pregnant and is keeping the baby. Isn't that what we want for her, to be able to keep her child?

What do you think of the latest news?

And, regarding old news and your reactions to Juno, what did you think of the teenage moms of Gloucester, MA? I was glad that they all kept their babies and I've been wondering what you thought of that.

I always feel that it's outrageous that these young women are somehow "expected" not to keep their babies! This assumption is so coercive right there!

"Conveniently? I'd say it's actually probably not very convenient to have your teen daughter pregnant when you're running for VP on an abstinence only platform. What did they force her to get pregnant again immediately after giving birth to cover up the first pregnancy?"

The "conveniently" refers to the fact that being 5 months pregnant would make Bristol pregnant when Trig was born, which would mean she couldn't be Trig's mother.

And if Bristol is now only four or so months pregnant instead of the reported five, she could still be Trig's mother. She wouldn't be the first woman to become pregnant again quickly after being denied her Motherhood status -- Replacement Baby, anyone? Rebellion against being forced to pretend her own child is her brother? Makes sense to me.
