Bristol Palin Dropped From University Sex Week Appearance

Uproar over Washington University's decision to pay Bristol Palin around $20,000 to partake in a discussion about "sexual responsibility" during the institution's annual "Sex Week" recently led the St. Louis, Mo., school to reverse its decision.

Students at Wash U have rallied against the selection, announced earlier this week, mounting protests, petitions and referendums, all aimed at overturning the decision by the university's Student Health Advisory Committee to invite Bristol Palin to talk about abstinence during the university's Student Sexual Responsibility Week.  Palin, now 20, became pregnant with now two-year-old son Tripp at age 17. Students protested, arguing they didn't want to pay for Palin to speak using student funds
