Bristol Palin Talks Teen Pregnancy, Birth Control with Dr. Drew

Bristol Palin last night discussed birth control, rape, and teen pregnancy, including the circumstances surrounding her own pregnancy in a hard-hitting interview with HLN's Dr. Drew.
Bristol acknowledged that at the time of Tripp's conception, she had skipped three or four does of the birth control pill she had been prescribed. Dr. Drew pointed out that a woman using birth control pills cannot skip a single dose, or the contraception will fail. Bristol said she is not an "abstinence preacher," but instead wants young girls to make smart decisions. This means either abstinence or properly using birth control pills, and never skipping a dose.

Dr. Drew said the circumstances surrounding Bristol's first sexual encounter would constitute rape in California and questioned her on Alaska's laws. Bristol said she was unsure of what Alaska's laws were but felt her encounter was consensual. Bristol added that she maintained a relationship with Levi "for years on end" following her first encounter. Bristol regarded the encounter not as rape, but as being predicated upon a "series of stupid decisions" beginning when she lied to her mother about where she was going.

Bristol spoke about the difficulties involved with being a teen mother. She said young women need to be particularly careful, because it is the woman and her family who left to deal with the consequences of the pregnancy. The man involved usually walks away with little or no consequence to him.

In show prep, Bristol and Dr. Drew discussed Alaska, and how large, far and remote it is.
