Well to the happiness of the blogosphere, Sarah Palin has confirmed that her 17 y o daughter is five months pregnant. Congrats. So is that some how to supposed to diminish her qualifications as a VP contender? In actuality, this probably does more to assist her. How many of you who want to cast the first stone, haven't had this issue come about in your own families? I thought so.
The Palin parents are supporting their daughter in this time of trial and let her decide on her own, they say, to keep the child. Congrats to them. This is consistent with what Mrs. Palin stands for, but just as importantly, good for the baby.
Are you going to further try to suggest the Palin's are not good parents because this happened in their family? If you are, maybe you should begin with your own familial condemnations first.
Pray for the baby, it's mother, and the grandparents of this family. And pray for the thousands of other American families out there in the same boat.
