They Gave Bristol Palin $260K to Promote Abstinence? Can I Get a Hunk of That to Promote Something? - Page 4
And, under penalty of law, no help from Mom and Dad. It's YOUR baby! YOU take care of it.
For an entire semester.
You're sleepy? Tough. The baby is cranky tonight.
You're hungry? Tough. The baby eats first.
You want to go to a movie? Tough. The baby has a cold.
You want to do ANYTHING! NO! You CAN'T! You have a BABY now!
The baby's clothes are dirty. Wash them.
The baby needs diapers. Buy them.
The baby needs food. Buy some.
The baby needs and needs and needs and needs. And you can't put it in its little crib and ignore it because that's when they come and take you to jail.
Still want a baby?
No. What you wanted was "unconditional love," not this screaming, squalling, dripping from every orifice, 24/7 poop-making machine. This demanding little dictator who you can't let out of your sight for a MINUTE. You wanted someone who would love you for being YOU, not something that would drain every last ounce of strength, energy and money out of you.
This isn't what you wanted at ALL!
Now, this will do nothing to quell those urges that all adolescents experience. But it will do a far sight more than having some former Wasilla nouveau-riche hillbilly who got pregnant in high school because she was mad at her conservative mommy and she really, really loved the baby daddy until mommy convinced her he didn't really fit in with the new "Palin Image" telling kids not to do that which she got rich doing. Betcha a box of donuts that teenaged girls will AT LEAST make sure the fella has that rascal WRAPPED before she lets it get anywhere NEAR her. And who knows...
The experience might make her THINK about the possible CONSEQUENCES of sex and she'll abstain — not because God or Bristol Palin TOLD her to, but because she knows what taking full-time care of a baby is like, and maybe someday she'll be ready to deal with all that. Just not right now.
And isn't that what we want?
