Her mom says it would be all right but that Taylor should ask her dad.But taken to an illogical conclusion, her musing leads to more and more restrictions handed down from her father, the protector of her chastity. She is18 years old and has a beautiful baby daughter. She explains how she went through a drug-addled drunken phase "last summer" where she fell away from Jesus. She confides to the camera that her father told her she couldn't get an abortion because Olivia would be "killing his granddaughter." Her family clearly loves her.Her dad is constantly laying hands on her to pray for her.It is clear from the first scene that Taylor will be portrayed as the sex-crazed teen in the group.At best just the luck of the casting draw—rebellious teens equal ratings.It is revealed to her parents later that Taylor had said this.
