17 Massachusetts High School Girls Made Pregnancy Pact

Massachusetts health officials managed to discovery the pregnancy pact when they realized that many teenage girls at the high school were asking about pregnancy tests.

When girls found out they were not pregnant, officials have reported that they were upset and very angry about it.

An investigation found that the teenage girls formed a pact to get pregnant during the school year, with their male partners being from the school, or the community.

The majority of these 17 teenage girls who have gotten pregnant are under the age of 16. This is a problem because a law in the state of Massachusetts makes it illegal to have sex with anyone under the age of 16.

This means that their male partners could find themselves in serious trouble with the law if found.

The rate of 17 babies being born during the year is 4 times higher than the rate a year ago at the high school

    I like that NBC is spreading a good message to teens about not getting pregnant. I will have my brothers and sisters watch Baby Borrowers. I think it starts on June 25th…
