Abstinence preacher Sarah Palin to be a grandma again!
Daily Mail ^ | 07/20/2011 | Daily Mail

Posted on 07/20/2011 8:27:29 PM PDT by Hawk720

Sarah Palin is going to be a grandmother again - her 22-year-old son Track is expecting his first child.

The Republican politician’s new 21-year-old daughter-in-law Britta Hanson appears heavily pregnant in newly-posted photos on a friend's Facebook account.

The news comes two months after the high school sweethearts married in a small ceremony on a ski slope in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.

A picture captioned 'my beautiful britta pie!' which appears to have been taken after a baby shower, shows the expectant mother smiling brightly and surrounded by gifts.

Another shows Britta holding up a small hoodie as she smiles at the camera.

The story is they married because she was already pregnant.

Sure looks that way. Looks like she was at least 2 months pregnant when they got married and that hoodie she's holding won't fit the baby for a couple of years!

I heard stories that some high profile U.S. senators, Representatives and Governors on both sides of the aisle over the many decades have used certain doctors to so called fixed situations involving their teenage children and mistresses.....they sweep it under the rug

I don't think it will matter one bit. There are too many families in this country that have experienced the same situation, be it an unmarried daughter's pregnancy, or a 'shotgun wedding'. I don't think they'll hold anything against Sarah for either.

“The story is they married because she was already pregnant.”

If that is true, I find it disturbing. It’s yet something else the liberals can say is hypocrisy on Gov. Palin’s part. Even though obviously, Track was already a grown man, in the military and not living at home when this happened. It’s a good thing that afterwards they did the right thing and got married. Most people shack up these days and don’t even bother to make things right.

In this day and age children rarely live out the values the parents set out for them. However, I still find it sad. What’s even more sad is that I think the girl he married was a preacher’s daughter. If so, wow that stereo type about preacher’s kids is right on the money in this case.

All being said, Gov. Palin is not her grown kids and they are not the ones who would be running for President. I still support her but, it’s still a sad situation.

Not surprising.

I would feel very differently about this story if Governor Palin had been one of the street preaching, Bible thumping, finger pointing, social activists....

But she wasn't so, I don't care what her grown Veteran son does.

“The best you can hope for is that they don’t break your heart.”

So true, g_b_c, and the wise parent remembers that his child cannot fulfill all his hopes and dreams. If your child is a good person who is a productive member of society, that’s about as good as it gets. Any good stuff above and beyond that is gravy.

Its the ones who condemn her who probably have awful skeletons in their closet. Its always like that, they preach their holier then thou attitude but behind the scenes who knows what is really going on. No one is perfect..bottom line is this is a wonderful event for the Palin family. Everyone loves making something out of nothing. She is pregnant, they are married..what is it, a slow news day or something LOL..stupid libs always making something out of nothing. Congrats to the Palin family..and Britta is absolutely gorgeous!

Abstinence Education applies to teenagers, not 21 year old engaged men and women.

It would be preferable if couples chose to be Celibate, which is really what we are talking about here, but with the sexual revolution that ship sailed.

In this case, Track Palin and his Wife had an exclusive sexual relationship before Marriage and surprise, there's a bun in the oven.

Its the “No life” syndrome..trying to make something out of nothing. Some of the posts here about this being bad for Sarah’s future candidacy is beyond hysterically funny. Where do people get this stuff from..from their butts. Oh and the headline about Sarah being an “Abstinence preacher” Im sorry but when was Sarah ever preaching abstinence, I must have missed it in her book because I don’t remember reading that

No way - Palin for president! Get your Perry another VP. And round up others to be king makers - SARAH'S already done that as a private citizen - time for others to step up to the plate. You think anyone will? NOPE! Everyone talks a big game but SARAH is the only one who produces.

This will not help a potential Presidential bid, even though I would fully support her nomination as my first choice.

Really, first choice.? Let's see if you speak with fork tongue and/or if double mindedness is going on here.

Maybe this is a time for her to be a king/queen maker rather than run at the top of the ticket. Not a real big Perry fan, but I could enthusiastically support a Perry-Palin ticket, mostly because Palin would hold his feet to the fire.

You can't stay on track from one sentence to the other - from "FIRST CHOICE" and then forget the top of ticket and be a kingmaker or a foot holder with someone you really aren't a fan of suddenly FIRST CHOICE.

Yep.. I read “Going Rogue” and she has NEVER said she was for abstinence..in fact the only one talking about abstinence now is Bristol and that is Bristol’s choice and her choice alone. She isn’t forcing anyone to be abstinent. I don’t know what all the fuss is about, let’s just say for the sake of argument that Britta was pregnant before she got married to Track..WHO THE HECK CARES..they are both adults..the only reason why the media made a big whoopie doo about Bristol was that she was still technically a child, but Track and Britta are both adults, what they do with their lives is their own business

I know everyone here loves Sarah Palin, but personally I would be horrified if two of my kids got pregnant before they were married.

Track did not get pregnant.

BTW there are two things that are important here:

1) They are having a baby (as opposed to killing it)
2) They are getting married.

This is a cause for celebration. I would bet that under these circumstances you, as a parent, would be overjoyed with the outcome of this situation. They made it right.

God is pleased.

FWIW Bristol is a much better person for having gone through what she did. Any mother would be proud to have such a fine daughter.

Sarah raised her kids right. She didn't raise them to be perfect, she raised them to be adults.

BS.

If these were the kids of democrat candidates they would not be having a baby, they would be having an abortion, and they would not be getting married unless they were both members of the same sex.

The Perry minions really like to type Perry/Palin. Such an insult to Palin.

Palin/Paul is how I see it, but that would be up to Palin, and there are a lot of ways that she could go with this.

Rick Perry’s supporters are the worse. Now they’ve come up with “Perry Derangement Syndome” to describe people pointing out the many things on his record that make him completely unacceptable.

One of mine did. Was I particularly happy about the situation? No, but we did what we felt was the right thing to do at the time, and have come to see that it *was* the right thing (no abortion).

Will our offspring invariably make a decision the way we would choose for them to do? No, the other factors involved in our society at present absolutely precludes this, so it is incumbent on us to understand where we stand,and more importantly, why...

From one who has been there, horrified, no. Disappointed, yes. But marveling nonetheless at how wonderfully things have turned out.
