Bristol Palin to earn big bucks for talking abstinence at Washington UniversityJanuary 27th, 2011 - 6:33 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Jan 27 (ANI): The fact that Bristol Palin will be the keynote speaker for Washington University’s Sex Week in St. Louis hasn’t gone down well with all students.
While some students say that she as speaker will spark interest in the student body, others are outraged, reports the New York Daily News.
“One concern I do have is when we do fund someone like Bristol Palin, is what really are we supporting. And to me it’s someone who is famous because they got pregnant at 18,” said freshman Jacob Trunsky, chairman of the Budget Committee.
Especially since Palin’s speaking fee, which ranges from 15,000 dollars to 30,000 dollars, likely usurped the lion’s share of the funding for the panel event: 20,000 dollars.
SHAC President Scott Elman said, “Three thousand, maybe 4,000 people haven’t engaged in sex.”
“There’s a population on our campus that does practice abstinence and gets forgotten about.”
“We’re not just bringing in Bristol Palin, we’re bringing her in with three or four other educated people,” he added. (ANI)
