Surprise: Palin to Be a Grandmother
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.
Here we have another “family values” candidate who ought to spend some time worrying about her own family instead of judging ours.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, newly picked as Republican John McCain’s running mate, has revealed that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant.
Mrs Palin, a social conservative who is opposed to abortion, said in a statement her daughter Bristol would keep the child and marry its father.
The Alaska governor, a mother-of-five, was presented three days ago as her party’s vice-presidential candidate.
