Levi Johnston: Bristol Palin's Abstinence Campaign Is "Unrealistic" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's Palin vs. Johnston again. This time Levi Johnston, the former fiancee of Sarah Palin's teenage daughter Bristol, went on CBS The Early Show to comment on Bristol's new abstinence campaign. Levi and Bristol's son, Tripp, was born in December. Levi has gone on the record to point out the pregnancy was an accident that may have happened during the "few times" they didn't wear condoms.

This morning, Bristol was on Good Morning America to kick off her abstinence campaign. Today she'll speak on a panel in New York to promote the issue.

Levi was asked whether he thought Bristol's campaign was effective.

"Abstinence is a great idea," he said, "but I also think you need to enforce, you know, condoms and birth control and other things like that to have safe sex. I don't just think telling young kids, you can't have sex, it's not going to work. It's not realistic.

" ... It's a great idea and a great message she's trying to send out to the world and all the young kids. It's not easy raising a baby. But I do think there's more things to it than just not having sex."
