Unmarried Bristol Palin announces the birth of her second child

Bristol Palin announced on Instagram this Thursday that she’s brought another child into this world.

Bristol Palin announced on Instagram this Thursday that she’s brought another child into this world – out of wedlock, but I’ll explain why that’s important later.

This is the second child for the daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. According to NBC News, Family attorney John Tiemessen said he could confirm only that the Instagram account was Bristol Palin’s.

After her first child with her boyfriend Levi Johnston, Bristol unleashed her now infamous abstinence campaign, imploring young people to forgo their primordial urges unless sanctified in a (Christian, we’re assuming) union. Aside from “abstinence education” being a fairly solidly-debunked strategy for preventing unwanted pregnancies, Bristol’s campaign itself became a strong symbol utilized by pro-choicers to demonstrate its ineffectiveness.

My sweet Sailor Grace was born yesterday, our family couldn’t be more complete 💕

From NBC:

Palin was an 18-year-old unwed mother when she launched the abstinence campaign soon after giving birth to son Tripp in December 2008.

She was engaged to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, but the wedding was called off days before the ceremony earlier this year.

No one knows who the father of her latest child is. Either way, we wish her all the best.

    No, you are not wishing her the best…you idiots! You are getting hits on your site because of the gossip. Leave the lady alone. Why don’t you focus on how it’s possible for a man to win the Woman of the Year award! Go figure.

    Because, ‘trump for president’, the problem here is not WHAT people believe, or what gender they turn themselves into, or whether or not they believe in marriage or abstinence….

    Rather, ‘trump for president’, the issue here is the two-faced ness of it all.

    1) Wanting OTHERS in particular, to follow YOUR rules or convictions. Campaigning against other people’s lifestyles that do NOT influence your life AT ALL.
    AND wanting OTHERS that PROFESS to have the same convictions as yourself, to do their best to ‘live up’ to their holy standards.

    2) Going ahead and contradicting or undoing EVERYTHING the above made point stands for, by NOT abiding with your OWN rules and convictions.
    Not even blinking at that!!
    Not feeling the slightest inconsistency in marching out against a perceived wrong in society and then going ahead and becoming a part of that percieved wrong, yourself!!!!

    Why should ANY site leave such two-faced, or otherewise clueless people alone?!

    Wishing her well but don’t think she was ever a good role model or argument for abstinence. She is not her mom and shouldn’t be overly criticized for her mom’s views.
