Palin said she felt she let her teenage daughter Bristol down upon hearing the-then 17-year-old high school student was pregnant last year.

When asked by Walters if she felt she had failed as a mother, the former governor of Alaska said: "A parent's responsibility, yes, perhaps feeling I had let her down -- I think that's just a mother's nature."

Palin said while she had discussed birth control with her daughter, she just assumed Bristol was not sexually active with her hunky high school beau, Johnston. Palin said that while she is not opposed to birth control, she would have counseled her daughter to "choose life" if the topic of abortion had arisen.
