    These girls have probably grown up watching TV and being taught that "anything goes" in our society, because it does. Everyone does whatever seems right in their own mind. So they don't see anything wrong with what they are doing.

      This is a classic case of not having any expectations....getting pregnant as a teenager is such a selfish act...if these girls really know what binds they will put their parents in as well as these innocent babies...they wouldn't do it...I can't believe that all of these girls come from "Bad homes with bad parents" It sounds to me like the "Group Mentality" enough of them start talking about and and how much "fun" it will be the more they started to believe their own crap.

      Someone needs to give these girls a real dose of reality...this is not a baby doll...you can't decide you want to be an adult and do adult things and then when it back fires revert to being a kid...it doesn't work that way...They will need good family support with just enough help..because if you help too much it makes it that more easier to go out and do it again...and where's the lessson in that.

      This is unfortunate and it makes me sad to hear things like this...our society is so out-of-whack that most people grow up with out expectations and goals...Just because you can have a baby at 14-17 is not always a good idea for you or the baby!!!! Too bad they will have to learn the hard way.

      God help them!

        Wow, this is so crazy and sad.
        When I was 15 one of my friends wanted us to lose our virginity together. I remember feeling like crap! My boyfriend at the time was also hinting about having sex and I really did not know how to handle the "stress" at that time. I knew I was not ready for sex yet, so I ended up cutting ties with her and breaking up with the guy. Oh by the way, she was pregnant by the next semester.
        I knew he was the man I would marry as soon as we met...

          My heart sank when I read this story. It is unbelievable and so disappointing at the same time. Talk about having nothing to do!!! It's terrible that this is what kids aspire to these days...

            My heart broke when I first heard about this story! It's so sad on so many levels.

            I also became upset with the parents- how could they not realize that this was going on? It only took the school a few questions to get to the root of the problem ( the pact) how did none of the parents get a clue?

            There was a girl in my oldest daughters sophmore class that was pregnant this year - when she told me about it we had several long talks about teen preganancy, her goals for the future and the repercussion of certain choices and that I understood that it's a natural response and could be hard to say no if she got into cetain situations but that she had to be the strong one- we also talked about how to stay out of those situations ( and I as a parent would do everything in my power to keep her out of those situations!). This wasn't the first time that we talked about the issue (we've had age appropriate discussions for years now) and certainly won't be the last.

            Honestly I hate having to talk about it, but I know that the way things are now with advertising and such that I have no choice if I want my daughter to 1) know exactly how I feel about teens & sex and 2) impart out family values 3) open the lines of communication.

              I have always said that the best birth control my mom ever gave me was my sister! She was born on my 12th birthday, so I was old enough to understand the responsibilty that goes along with a baby, yet young enough to make the right choices as a teenager. I had a few friends in junior high that would make comments about having babies to love them and so on. I decided to step in and make sure that they got an idea and realized what it was like to have a baby that you can't just give back when it's hungry, poopy or crying. I talked to my Mom and she was all for it too.

              I took my sister and spent a whole day with a friend (which wasn't really anything all that new), but the difference was that I wouldn't do anything with my sister. I was basically only a spectator. If she cried, they had to figure out what was wrong and fix it. They had to feed her, change her and keep her entertained. They realized that it isn't all fun and games and that babysitting is not the same as parenting. None of the friends I did that with became teen Mom's and they never really talked about having babies for a long time afterwards.
