Bristol: Mom Sarah Palin's View Of Teen Abstinence 'Not Realistic'

After giving birth to her first child at 18, Bristol Palin says she wants to prevent other teens from making the same mistake.

"Everyone should wait 10 years," she told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. "I hope people learn from my story. It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career. It's not a situation you want to strive for."

Bristol denied that mom Sarah Palin's anti-abortion stand was why she didn't terminate the unplanned pregnancy: "It was my choice to have the baby. It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision."

"Eventually we'd like to get married. We're focusing on getting through school though, getting a career going. It's not just the baby part of it that's hard, it's just realising that I'm not living for myself anymore; I'm living for another human being."

Bristol said her mother's view of teen abstinence wasn't realistic: "Everyone should be abstinent, but it's just not realistic at all," adding that among people her age, "it's more and more accepted now".

Bristol recalled how she broke the news to her parents: "We were sitting on the couch -- me, my best friend and Levi -- and we had my parents come sit on the couch too. I couldn't even say it."

"I was just sick to my stomach. Finally, my best friend just blurted it out. I don't even remember it, because it was something I don't want to remember."
