This blog deliberately did not cover the internet rumors that have absorbed so many this weekend. None of the children of any political candidate should be held under vicious and unfounded media scrutiny.

That Sarah Palin's campaign blamed liberal bloggers for "forcing her" to announce the pregnancy of her 17-year-old daughter is another atrocious lie following her "bridge to nowhere" funding flip-flop. The rumor that Palin's fifth pregnancy was "well-disguised" came directly from a fellow Alaska Republican, State Senate President Lyda Green.

A great many young people in our country become pregnant or worse, contract a sexually transmitted disease, every day. We have nothing to say about the young Palin and her unfortunate situation.

We have a great deal to say about the Republican Party and its POLICIES regarding sex education, reproductive choice, HIV prevention, and let's not forget their complete hypocrisy regarding homosexuality and civil rights. Sarah Palin's stands on these ISSUES are contrary to feminism, the health of our young people, and everyday common sense.

Is it a surprise to anyone that Sarah Palin is an advocate of abstinence-only programs, and opposed sex education in Alaska's schools?

The New Republic reports that earlier this year Palin "used her line-item veto to slash funding for a state program benefiting teen mothers in need of a place to live."

Again, this is not about Sarah Palin's daughter. Although it would be if she were homeless, Governor.

It is about a government that has failed to make responsible decisions regarding public health policy, and the completely irresponsible positions the Republican Party takes on those issues.

Sarah Palin should be ashamed, because she is a Republican.
