Bristol Palin’s Abstinence Campaign a “Flop” in New York City

New York City students were none too impressed with Bristol Palin’s advice to consider abstinence during a town hall meeting today.  Which is surprising, considering Bristol is a very credible unwed teen mother who fairly recently said “abstinence isn’t realistic.

You may have heard of Bristol…?  Just maybe?  She’s the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and was selected as an ambassador to The Candie’s Foundation to help create awareness about the pitfalls of teen pregnancy.  Well, today, she stumped for her mom, er… I mean, carried her message to about 150 teens at a town meeting forum at The Times Center that included “Heroes” actress Hayden Panettiere and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Garza, who was a teen father.

“It’s a big flop,” said Jerry Kowal, a high school senior, referring to Bristol’s campaign to get teens to abstain from sex.  (In Bristol’s defense, that’s exactly the reaction she is promoting among young men in bed.)

“I don’t think it’s her real opinion,” the 17-year-old told ABCNews.com.  “She’s just trying to help her mother.  She said it herself that abstinence education doesn’t work.  I looked it up.”

Ah, kids and that newfangled Google.  Can’t get anything past them these days.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
