Let me start off by saying the one thing they both share in common is the fact that they became pregnant as teenagers.

Now the differences:



Bristol comes from a white privileged family, where her mother has a high profile as Governor of Alaska and now as the Republican nominee for Vice-President of the United States. She has three sisters and one brother. Her father is in the home.

Janie comes from a middle class black family where her dad was absent more than he was around. She is an only child. Her mother is a journalist, who left Corporate America because her boss never respected her role as a working mom. (long, unappreciated hours and no opportunity for advancement)


Bristol’s boyfriend is an 18 year old named Levi Johnson who described himself as an F----- redneck on his MySpace page before it was taken down. He also indicated he did not want children.

Janie’s boyfriend had a bright promising future as an actor or chef before he was murdered the day after Christmas for defending his little sister who was being harassed by a gang banger on a city bus.

Mother's Reaction to Pregnancy

Bristol has received very public support from her mother, who issued a statement saying her daughter was going to keep the baby and marry the baby’s daddy. The wedding date has yet to be announced. Sarah Palin is a staunch supporter of abstinence. How much she told her daughter about sex and having unprotected sex is unknown.

Janie hid her pregnancy for fear of how I would react and, rightfully, so. I was livid! Obviously, all those times I told her to keep her dress down and drawers up fell on deaf ears. I wanted my daughter to weigh all of her options because she had plans to go to college and we all know raising a child can seriously alter your plans.


Bristol’s future remains unclear, although her mother has assured the public the family will stand by Bristol and offer their undying support. One thing we know for sure is she will be a mother in a few months and married to her boyfriend.

Janie, meanwhile, is raising her son alone with the love and support of family members on both sides. She is also out to prove the naysayers wrong by pursuing her college education. She is currently enrolled at North Carolina A&T, while grandma takes on the role of Ma.

Nice work Beverly....the reality of life from two distinct families is very clear in todays society. We as parents support our kids in every which way we can, unfortunately life is different between the priviledged and the middle class....can yu imagine the families of the very poor. I enjoyed your honesty and wish you and your daugther all the best, she is fortunate to have a family that not only supports but is willing to carry some responsibility in raising her child.

God Bless...

Well said. I wonder of Sara Palin is forcing her child to marry the redneck? No act of cruelty by this dreadful woman would surprise me.
Reviewed by Beryl McMullen 9/4/2008
Sarah Palin gave a great speach, that she was just an ordinary mom, when in truth she is a woman of privilidge and can very well afford to pay others to bring up her children, so that she can devote her time to other persuits. Thought her baby being passed around like a little parcel didn't fool me one bit.
