Have you seen Bristol Palin's new pro-abstinence-only commercial?
Now, there's nothing wrong with encouraging kids to hold off on sex until they're ready to take all necessary precautions against pregnancy and disease, but there's something a little off about this ad. She could be making a valid point (that the resources she has available to her make her life as a teen mom easier than it is for most other teen moms), but something about it just smacks of elitism. Maybe it's the jump from the Chanel jacket to the empty room.
See for yourself:
For those of you who can't play sound or don't have the patience to watch it, this is what she says: What if I didn't come from a famous family? What if I didn't have all their support? What if I didn't have all these opportunities? Believe me, it wouldn't be pretty. Pause before you play.
