Bristol Palin to Talk Abstinence on ABC’s “The View”

May 4, 2010 10:01am

ABC News’ Devin Dwyer reports:

Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, hits the campaign trail tomorrow to promote National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy with a solo debut on ABC’s “The View.”

Palin, a teenage mom turned abstinence spokesperson, is pushing the work of the advocacy group Candie’s Foundation for whom she currently appears in public service announcements airing on national TV.

 “What if I didn’t come from a famous family? What if I didn’t have all their support? What if I didn’t have all these opportunities?” Palin says amid flashbacks to the 2008 presidential campaign and photos of her with her family.

“Believe me, it wouldn’t be pretty. Pause before you play,” she says. 

Palin first burst into the spotlight in September 2008 when at the opening of the Republican Convention it was announced that she was pregnant at 18 and engaged to her then boyfriend Levi  Johnston. 

On “The View,” Palin is expected to talk about the challenges of raising her son Tripp — and introduce a new "Crying Baby" iPhone app featuring a crying baby that cannot be turned off.
