Bristol Palin's Sex Abstinence Campaign A Flop In NYC

New York City students weren't impressed with Bristol Palin's advice to campaign against teen pregnancy and abstinence from sex during a town hall meeting. Students say they might consider abstinence, but they wouldn't take advice from the young, unwed mother.
Bristol, the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was selected as an ambassador to The Candie's Foundation to help create awareness about why teen pregnancy sucks. She proceeded to spread her words of wisdom to about 150 teens at the forum, which included actress Hayden Panettiere and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Garza, who was a teen father.
However, feedback was not what Palin was hoping for. "It's a big flop," said Jerry Kowal, a high school senior. "I don't think it's her real opinion," the 17-year-old said, "She's just trying to help her mother. She said it herself that abstinence education doesn't work. I looked it up."
I guess these teens discovered that a knocked-up, single mom, who by the way, is perfectly happy (while leaving her child back home in order to campaign) isn't exactly the role model they were looking for.
