Say What? Bristol Palin Ignores the Safe-Sex Option

"Girls need to imagine and picture their life with a screaming newborn baby and then think before they have sex . . . If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex. Trust me. Nobody."

In the new issue of People magazine, teen mom and recent high school graduate Bristol Palin says that if girls realized that sex can result in pregnancy, they'd practice abstinence. I don't really follow Bristol's argument that nobody would be having sex. Doesn't the risk of pregnancy also make women consider contraception?
