(Newser) – Bristol Palin is shifting from promoting her mom to promoting teen pregnancy prevention. The 18-year-old, who gave birth to a boy in December, has been appointed “Teen Ambassador” of the Candie’s Foundation campaign. She said in a statement that she feels she can be a living example of the consequences of teen pregnancy, and would consider it an accomplishment if she can prevent even one girl from getting pregnant.
