Far Right Republican Family Values

Far Right Republican Family Values apparently include not only knowingly choosing to have a Down's Syndrome child when one already has a full family of four, but also the fine example of parenting displayed when one has a 16 year old teenage daughter (now 17) -- the daughter of a state governor, no less -- running around having unprotected sex and who, as a not very surprising result, is now 5 months pregnant.
