Sarah Palin: Abstinence Only Ed Works; Daughter Bristol Begs to Differ

Of course you’ve heard this by now:

Reuters: “The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

What you might not know is this: in July 31st Gubernatorial candidate Sarah Palin filled out a questionnaire on education. Excerpt below.

3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?

SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.

Now that Governor Palin’s Daughter Bristol finds herself with child, I wonder of Governor Palin still holds abstinence only education is such high regard. I think Bristol has discovered the flaws in such curriculum.
