Principal can't confirm planned pregnancy

GLOUCESTER, MA (Fox 29) - The mayor of a Massachusetts town meets with school and health officials to try to find evidence of a so-called pregnancy pact at a high school.

The Gloucester mayor, Carolyn Kirk, says the only one to make the claim that there was some kind of a pact was the high school principal. The principal doesn't seem to remember where he heard it. Kirk says she's talked with counselors, teachers and families of those students.

Time Magazine quoted the principal saying a group of girls at his high school made that agreement to get pregnant and then raise their children together.

Seventeen girls, aged 16 or younger became pregnant this year. This is number is four times the usual number of pregnant teens.
