On Monday, the Tyra Banks Show will air an interview with Levi Johnson, Bristol Palin’s former fiancé and father of her child. Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), through a spokeswoman, lashed out at Levi for “engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship.” The spokeswoman also said Bristol would focus on “advocating abstinence”:
“Bristol’s focus will remain on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence,” [spokeswoman Meghan] Stapleton continues. “It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child.”
However, in a February interview with Fox News, Bristol told Greta van Susteren, “[E]veryone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.” Indeed, as a form of birth control, advocating abstinence simply doesn’t work.
