Palin's Daughter is Currently Pregnant

The Independent is reporting that Sarah Palin and the McCain campaign have confirmed 17-year-old Bristol Palin, who has been at the center of rumors that she is actually the mother of Trig Palin, Sarah Palin's infant son, is currently 5 months pregnant.
The Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has announced that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
And because I am pro-choice, meaning I respect other women's choices, irrespective of whether they're the choices I'd make, and because I know that children and their parents don't always have the same politics, so it doesn't really matter whether Bristol Palin does what her mother preaches, that's all I'm going to say about that.
