Bristol Palin became a public voice for sexual abstinence through Candie's Foundation after she became a single mother at the age of 18. And what has her public voice gotten her? Well, a salary that is seven times more than her non-profit donated to teen pregnancy prevention.
The Associated Press released the Candies Foundation 2009 tax information. This statement revealed that Bristol Palin received a salary of $262,500, and her teen pregnancy foundation only donated $35,000 to health and counseling clinics: $25,000 to the Mt. Sinai Adolescent Health Center and $10,000 to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
More than 750,000 teen girls will become pregnant this year. Teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics are essential to providing girls with healthy and affordable options during their pregnancy, and donations are necessary to keep these clinics up and running.
Tell Bristol Palin to donate her salary to teen pregnancy clinics and truly support the cause she claims to be an advocate for.
You, of all people, should understand how essential teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics are for thousands of girls around the nation. These organizations are the foundation to safe and healthy teen pregnancies, and you should be ashamed to call yourself an advocate when you are clearly in it to make money.
