Lindsay Lohan weighs in on Palin, teen pregnancy
Lindsay Lohan, 22, certainly spent her teenage years in the media spotlight, so when she has a few words about the media glare on the pregnant 17 year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, the presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee, it gets our attention.
But when Lohan posted a blog about the subject on her MySpace page today, we were surprised that it was less about Bristol Palin and more about politics in general, teen pregnancy and keeping a family’s private life out of the public spotlight, which is another thing Lindsay knows a little about.
Here’s a few things she said. The rest of the blog posting can be read here.
“I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place. It’s distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences,” Lindsay wrote.
And, she added:”… I would much prefer to hear more about what she can do for our country rather than how her daughter is going to have a child no matter what.”
Finally, Lindsay says: “I think that parents need to recognize how important it is to talk to their children about the things that can result from being sexually active if they aren’t protecting themselves (birth control, condoms, etc.)”
