lately I’ve been accused of being a hypocrite by the pro-abort trolls that can’t seem to keep their noses out of other people’s business.
I’m a hypocrite because I advocate for abstinence even though I myself have had a child out of wedlock.
My answer to that is: So what?
Why can’t I be an advocate for abstinence? Should I stand by and let others make the same mistake I did? I don’t think so. People make mistakes. No one is perfect. I’ve never said that I was and I never will. I made a mistake. I learned from it and with that experience its my duty to teach others.
Bristol Palin feels the same way. She became an abstinence ambassador for the Candies Foundation after giving birth to her son Tripp.She’s using her experience as an example of what not to do. I think its admirable of her to use her experience to help prevent other teens from getting pregnant. There is a great interview with her on the Christianity Today web site.
I understand that abstinence is not for everyone. I don’t expect every teen out there to practice it. I will however continue to advocate for it, as it is the ONLY 100% effective way to prevent pregnancy. That is what I intend to teach my daughters as well. If one slips up and ends up pregnant, they will have my full support. I can’t judge them because I’ve been there myself.
If some hear the message and decide its the way they want to go, good for them. If they don’t, I can’t force them to, but at least I have put that information out there for them instead of sitting idly by while teens are getting pregnant and turning to abortion as a solution. Two wrongs don’t make it right.
