Bristol Palin Says Second Pregnancy 'Was Actually Planned'

Bristol Palin Says Second Pregnancy 'Was Actually Planned'

Bristol Palin has taken to her blog after receiving some criticism when she announced her second pregnancy earlier this week.

“So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me,” the 24-year-old daughter of former governor Sarah Palin wrote on her blog. “None of us are perfect. I made a mistake, but it’s not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have loved to assume.”

Bristol continued, “This pregnancy was actually planned. Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on.”

But I do not regret this baby. This baby is not a disappointment, and I cannot wait to be a mom times two. Tripp is going to make the best big brother!!

Let’s get another thing straight, because I can’t tolerate all the talk on this subject. I have never been paid as an “abstinence spokesperson.” I was employed by the great people at The Candies Foundation.

In other words, they are a teen pregnancy prevention non-profit and I worked for them when I was 18 and 19 — when I could share first hand the challenges of being a teen mother. Here’s one of my PSAs:

I know you remember me most from when Mom ran for Vice President. However, I’m not 17 anymore, I am 24. I’ve been employed at the same doctor’s office for over six years now; I own a home; I have a well-rounded, beautiful son.

Here’s what I have spoken out about. Life.

On this blog and at a few pro-life events.

When I realized I was pregnant, I knew I would be completely crucified. But I never even thought of aborting this child, NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE. (Sorry to the ghouls at Gawker, who said this baby is an argument FOR abortion. Not happening.)

I am pregnant. This is not the ideal situation, but life is important even if it’s not in the most absolute ideal circumstance. This is more confirmation on what I’ve always stood for. I’ve always been pro-life and I am standing for life now.

Deal with it.

    I understand you are not 17, but why the need to act like one. Get off of social media.

    “…was actually planned…I got ahead of myself and things didn’t go as planned…” um. wut.

  • Plum Foolery

    All I hear is blah, blah, blah and damage control. Why didn’t she say this in the first place and be done with it? Just be quite and live your life by not sharing it with the world.

    Like war, you can plan for it but…

    She needs to hire some PR firm to read her posts and explain to her what and how her words will be interpreted before she hits send. Many people read that first post and thought she was disappointed in getting pregnant again. Then you come back with some snippy post that says it was a planned but not planned. Umm what?

    And guess what Bristol, you choosing to keep this baby, whether it was planned or not, is the whole point behind the PRO-CHOICE movement. Being pro-choice has and always will stand for a woman choosing what is best for her life, her womb, her health and her reproductive organs. And choosing to keep a child or keep and give up for adoption falls in that category.

    I’m so sick of this pro-life crap, especially when most in the pro-life circle elect or are elected who vote to cut funding to help starving children and sick and disabled humans get healthcare and medication (and the list could go on). Don’t come at me with this, I’m pro-life, I’m better than the pro-choice movement because I choose life. I’m sorry but no. It should be either you support a woman’s right to her body (pro-choice) or you don’t (anti-choice). Anyone would cry foul/big government if laws were passed to control a woman who has chosen to keep a baby, so why do politicans get a free ride to control a woman’s body if she chooses not to keep a baby. You can’t have it both ways. Either government controls every woman’s womb, or they stay the hell out of them and leave our wombs and uterus to our own self.

    No woman should have to give in full detail (or have a wand shoved up their vagina or be forced to wait days or be lectured by some anti-choice propaganda) as to why they are having an abortion especially when some women get them after being raped by a stranger, a friend or family member. Many rape victims are ashamed or scared because they know their rapist, and because of that, rapes are rarely reported. Being able to procure a SAFE abortion or the morning after pill, anonymously, without being ridiculed or condemned should be afforded to every woman on this Earth.

    So is this the blog written by her ghost writer? It’s really idiotic. No one was investigating her pregnancy no matter what delusional paranoid world she lives in. She voluntarily comes out and tells everyone about her disappointing pregnancy and then accuses people of persecuting her. Does she EVER get tired of playing the Victim.

    If you’re an abstinence spokesperson then you know exactly what to do to not get pregnant. Apparently the abstinence is only for teenagers. Good to know. Now you can stop moralizing over other people and just go away.

  • Esoteric11

    It seems like she is projecting her negativity. It’s not helping her at all by spewing her vile mouth. Just stop talking and live your life like you want Bristol. Geez.

  • Casey C

    Total crap. Literally from one sentence to the next it goes from things being ‘planned’ to things not going to plan. and just because you want a large family doesn’t mean that a particular pregnancy is planned. that’s BS. this is damage control. her last post mentioned how it was a disappointment to the family and how it wasn’t the best situation and seh was going to make the best of it,and now its, oh i planned this. honey you’ve never planned anything

    BP should have just said she thought she had found the right man who she had planned on marrying and decided not to wait for the official legality of marriage and things went awry with the relationship unexpectedly. Yeah there is a difference between teens and people in their mid 20′s who are financially stable with a job and means of support making a decision to have an intimate relationship and being able to handle the possible outcome of a pregnancy both emotionally and financially. She may have meant what she preached about a few years ago, after the birth of her son until recently, as a message to young teens that is is OK to wait and be abstinent, and how tough it was in her experience of being a teen mom, but that same message may be unrealistic for grown folks. Again, she should have just said that.

    No child is planned… who does she think she’s foolin’ ?

    The great people at that foundation spent spent $35,000 on preventing teen pregnancy and over $250,000 on her wages. I’m interested in working for them if that is what they pay their employees.

    Oprah warned her and she didn’t listen

    I think she means she thought she was gonna be marrying the marine dude and got ahead of herself, and the marriage, by getting knocked up… and then they broke up…so that (the marriage) didn’t go as planned.

    That’s how I interpreted what she said.

  • neatjunk

    None of it makes sense. Lies, lies, lies. World’s biggest hypocrite. She should just admit she really likes to have sex.
