Both the democrats and republicans are trying to say that we need to keep Gov. Palin’s daughter out of the media.
I disagree. We need to address teen pregnancy. This is REAL. Teens have sex and the girls get pregnant.
Real life. Not just to "sluts" and "whores", but to "good" girls and kids who have parents that love them.
The young Ms. Palin had a choice of what to do when she found out. A CHOICE. A LEGAL CHOICE. I keep reading how Gov Palin is "walking the talk." Bullshit. Her DAUGHTER is doing that. Not the governor. Ms. Palin found out she was pregnant and made the decision to raise the child and marry the father.
The question I have for all of the anti-choice people who hide out under the words "pro-life" and "pro-family" is: Wouldn’t you want your child to make this choice too? To have the ability to do what you feel is the right thing? Ms. Palin HAD A CHOICE. Let’s keep it that way.
You want to keep this a "private family matter"? Not when Gov. Palin wants to take these private choices away from girls and women across the country.
You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Either teen pregnancy is a private personal choice OR it’s a public policy matter. Teens will get pregnant. We can’t stop that. We are biological creatures and we are programmed for sexual intercourse. How to deal with the outfall of teen sex, weather it is disease or pregnancy? That’s the issue. We CAN treat women and girls with respect. We CAN allow them to make the choices that are right for them.
For the silly disclaimers:
1) I like life. pro-choice is not anti-life.
2) I think reproductive choices from having children, to having a vasectomy is a private thing that doesn’t need to be part of a policy.
3) If you believe abortion is murder, don’t choose to have an abortion.
