Bristol Palin’s life challenges

Bristol Palin’s first pregnancy announcement came when her mother, Sarah Palin was selected as the Republican nominee for the Vice Presidential run in 2008.

Soon a media firestorm resulted which was partly sparked by the opposing party but also due to the fact that Sarah Palin had always advocated abstinence-only sex education and was against abortion.

Bristol Palin’s name was dragged into all the gossip columns. Soon, Bristol Palin separated from Levi Johnston and there were courtroom battles over child custody and support.


Johnston also posed nude for ‘Playgirl’ magazine and further contributed to the tarnishing of the image of Sarah and Bristol Palin.

Johnston also penned a memoir ‘Deer in the headlights: My life in Sarah Palin’s crosshairs’ in which he stated that he had an affair with Sarah Palin when he was dating her daughter, Bristol Palin.

After campaigning for her mother in 2008, Sarah became part of several TV shows. She also wrote her memoir on her life as a single mother. In spite of her flaws, Bristol Palin still maintained that abstinence is the best way to avoid pregnancy.

She defended her thinking by saying:

“I don’t think it’s hypocritical at all. If you get lung cancer from smoking, why wouldn’t you want to tell people, ‘Hey, look, don’t smoke.’ Why wouldn’t you want to be productive and share your story and do something positive with it?”
