Palin Defends Her Pregnant, Unwed Daughter

Sarah Palin said recently that she is “happy” her daughter is about to become a single mom for the second time, Opposing Views reported.

According to Rawstory, CBS reporter Tracy Smith asked the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate: “Bristol is pregnant again. That can’t be how you saw this playing out, unmarried and pregnant again.”

Palin replied: “Heck no! Because being a single mom is, oh my goodness, my heart goes out to the single parents. But my enormous admiration for what it is that they’re able to accomplish doing double duty … and I watch Bristol do double duty all the time with her little boy, Tripp. I can’t wait for about 45 more days and I’m going to have a little baby granddaughter. And I’m happy about it.”

Opposing Views cited a report by The Washington Post that in 2008, then-Gov. Palin cut funding by more than a million dollars for Covenant House. The organization provides various programs, including transitional housing and services for teenage mothers.

Smith challenged Palin about her line-item veto reducing the funding. He noted that “there are those who say, ‘Come on, this goes against everything you stand for.’” She responded: “Well, the cool thing about putting your faith in God is he certainly is a god of second chances, and third and fourth and fifth chances. I screw up all the time.”
