Normally we try not to pay too much attention to what’s happening to the wombs of America’s teenagers, but Bristol Palin, 17, happens to be the daughter of John McCain’s VP pick. Sarah Palin thinks the government should meddle in the reproductive health of women, but in the case of her daughter, she asks for privacy.Has Palin been going around publicly scolding the parents of other girls who have gotten pregnant without the benefit of marriage, and advocating that the government get involved in it? If so, we somehow missed that. As a matter of policy, Palin has opposed abortion because it results in the death of an unborn child, but we can't recall her ever, like her current opponents, targeting any individual family who has to make that decision.
Here we have another “family values” candidate who ought to spend some time worrying about her own family instead of judging ours.
Her behavior is perfectly in keeping with her beliefs.
Nothing Palin has done compares with what her critics are now engaged in. They'll realize it once the frenzy of the hunt is over.
