John McCain and Sarah Palin Are Anti-Sex Education
It seems that Sarah Palin’s views on sex education possibly set the stage for the her 17 year old daughter Bristol Palin’s pregnancy. The pregnancy scandal is probably the largest Sarah Palin Scandal to come out since she was announced as John McCain’s running mate.
McCain’s record on issues surrounding teen pregnancy and contraceptives during his more than two decades in the Senate indicates that he and Palin have similar views. Until Monday, when the subject surfaced in a deeply personal manner, teen pregnancy and sex education were not issues in the national political campaign.
Palin herself said she opposes funding sexual-education programs in Alaska.
“The explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support,” she wrote in a 2006 questionnaire distributed among gubernatorial candidates.
