Speaking from experience, Bristol Palin says in a FOX News interview with Greta Van Susussususussteren that abstinence-only is “not realistic”.
She’s correct, of course. Being a teen mom is hard. Abstinence-only sex education is unrealistic. And, yes, abstaining from sex is the best way to avoid a whole host of headaches. That’s why crazy “loony liberals” like me promote full-spectrum sex education – so that kids understand that abstaining is best, but that if they succumb to their hormones like young Bristol did, they know how to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy and/or STDs.
