17 Knocked Up Teenagers in One High School

 - Jun 20, 2008

In an otherwise-quiet Massachusetts school, 17 girls have become pregnant. Even more concerning, the school principal has reported a number of teenage girls have been frustrated to learn that they were NOT pregnant.

Is pregnancy contagious?

Diving a little deeper, it was uncovered that some of the girls made a 'Pregnancy Pact'; a vow amongst their peers to get pregnant and raise their babies together.

The girls were all 16 or younger.

The Principal noted something even more frightening, "We found out one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless guy."

Some parents are blaming movies like Juno and Knocked Up, which glamorize unplanned pregnancy.
