Big-time abstinence preacher, Sarah Palin, has yet another kid who has sex out of wedlock.
Turns out, Palin is set to be a grandma for the second time and it’s going to happen any day now.
As the Daily Mail reports, Palin’s 22-year-old son, Track, and his wife are expecting their first child very soon.
Track married his high school sweetheart, 21-year-old Britta Hanson two months ago in Alaska. A friend of Hanson posted pictures of what appears to be her baby shower on her Facebook account. Hanson is heavily pregnant and holding up tiny baby clothes she received as gifts.
Britta’s conservative mother-in-law, former U.S. Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has famously advocated that schools teach teenagers to abstain from sex before marriage. Wonder if Sarah will ever reconsider and advocate for sex education instead? You know, like how to use birth control and stuff?
This is the second Palin kid to get pregnant out of wedlock. I’m certain I don’t need to remind you about Bristol and her high school “sweetheart”, Levi Johnston. Bristol, 20, got pregnant at 17 – during her mother’s run for Vice-President of the United States – and had a baby Tripp with Johnston in December, 2008.
Regardless of my feelings about Sarah Palin, I wish the young couple nothing but happiness. Track spent a year with the Army in Iraq as a reservist before the wedding; Britta, the daughter of a minister, is a University of Alaska nursing student. I hope the kids can really make a go of it.
