    I read about that, but if Bristol is 5 months pregnant now, she couldn't have given birth 4 months ago...something in the timeline is off...but who knows...she definitely looks like she's up to something in that pic though

    That is a handsome family.

    I heard that, p_m, and then I heard that she had released the info about her daughter being pregnant to counter the rumor about Trig being her baby. IMO I'm inclined to believe her, if only because it's FAR more likely that Sarah would have a baby with DS than her daughter.

    Yes, exactly. I don't know what the odds are about DS, but I know that a 44-year-old is FAR more likely to have one than a 16- or 17-year-old.

    Yeah, I think it would be nearly impossible. Sarah Palin was raised Catholic. Could be Irish twins.

    I don't know what the risk is for a 17yo, but it's like 1/1300 for a 25yo woman, and 1/30 for a 45yo woman. (I used to do pregnancy/birth/breastfeeding peer counseling which is why I know, I'm not trying to be a knowitall.)

    Apparently she's a member of Feminists For Life, a group with murky stances on birth control. They don't promote it.

    The Nation has a good article on them Feminists for (Fetal) Life

    That's a pretty terrible article. The woman from that article sounds dumb, but the author strongly implies that it is impossible to be both a feminist and pro-life, and that is obvious nonsense.

    Feminism is all about women's rights and interests, so you'd think that would include being in favor of a women's right to choose.

    But I don't really have a problem with someone calling themselves a pro-life feminist.

    If you really believe that abortion is murder, though, then the matter isn't even an argument; it would be the old bumper sticker "It's a child not a choice!" belief.

    You can't see how believing in women's autonomy and rights would clash with the belief that abortion is wrong?

    That's why it's odd to see a pro-life feminist. You don't see many around for that reason.
