    yeah, this story has been all over the news for a couple of months now, at least the part about all the pregancies, the pact part just came out within the last few days I think, it's crazy!

      I read about this yesterday and I think it's absolutely insane. Poor girls... and the homeless father? Wow!

        They don't even know what a disservice they are doing to the babies they are about to have. Most people want to make sure that their children have a better life than they did, but they are in no position to even take care of themselves. So sad.......

        omg that is so sad.

        ok sometimes ( a LOT of times) young girls "accidentally" get pregnant and it sucks, but it happens.

        but to deliberately PLAN, as a group? to waste away your childhood/hs years on purpose? yes they may end up with a beautiful baby they wouldnt trade for the world. but most of them will also still have that inconsolable lonliness that they thought they had in the first place, only way way worse because now they are stuck alone at home caring for an infant instead of out running around to the mall and parties with their buddies.

        so sad.

            This part was really disturbing to me. I hope she at least knew the guy. I hope it wasn't one of those desperate moves to fulfill her end of the pact so she slept with some random homeless dude.

            You would think at this point parent's would be all about educating their students on safe sex and providing contraceptives. Just pretending it's going to go away will not work. How about assigning all these girls one of those damn robotic crying babies. I bet that would help shape them up really quick.

            IMO- these girls have no idea what they are in for. I think the school should start dishing out some reality. A baby doesn't fix things. It's going to be a very hard road for them. I know people have babies this young, but they didn't CHOOSE it- at least I'm sure most don't.

                  nothing news in the UK. We frequently hear young teenages wanting babies to get council houses.

                  * please note I'm not saying all young teenage mums do this. I know quite a few friends who struggled to get anything from the council or have pride that they have never relied on hand outs
