Abstinence, a family trend?

Bristol Palin became a mother outside wedlock. Sarah Palin gave birth to her eldest son seven and half months after getting married to Todd. Sarah's mother, Sally Heath, gave birth to her first child, Chuck Jr, possibly less than eight months into wedlock.

It looks like at least three generations of this family found it extremely difficult to abstain from sex before marriage!

Maybe Willow will manage to get married nine months before giving birth and Piper might even go for ten and really buck the family trend.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not passing judgement on couples who can't wait to be married before they have sex. But I'm not the one telling the world that abstinence only is the best method of contraception or that sex outside marriage is a sin...

I often wonder if Sarah chooses to be the kettle or the pot. Hopefully, Willow and Piper will have the right to CHOOSE a form of birth control.
