(Newser) – Bristol Palin thinks the best advertisement for abstinence is “a screaming newborn baby,” she tells People in a look at the life of a teenage mom. “If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex,” says Bristol, who graduated high school last week, but worked two part-time jobs, wrote papers with said screaming baby in the room, and skipped prom to do it. “Trust me. Nobody.” Is she sad about missing out? “I have other things to worry about,” she says.

“I’m thankful we didn't get married,” she adds of baby daddy Levi Johnston. “Because if it wasn’t going to work now, it wasn’t going to work in five years.”
