Bristol Palin Tells Dr. Drew: “Don’t Name Me an Abstinence Preacher”
Bristol Palin told Dr Drew she doesn’t want to
be named as an abstinence preacher…I’m not out there saying don’t have sex. I hate that kind of stuff. Birth control needs to be used effectively each and every single time if you’re gonna be having sex.
wishes she had stuck to abstinence, but that
I’m not advocating it for everyone else…Kids are gonna do what they’re gonna do.

One of the kids was playing with his iPhone during the meal, but he may have just been Googling reactions to his dad’s show.
