Pregnant 14-Year-Old Says Having a Child Is the Newest Fashion Among Teens

Can you believe this? The fashion among teens is HAVING A CHILD ….

I really do not understand what to call fashion, if this is fashion. Read the story as it appreared on FoxNews website:

LONDON —  The newest fashion among schoolgirls is getting knocked up, according to one pregnant 14-year-old whose four friends are also expecting.

British teen Kizzy Neal says she’s been approached for advice from other pregnant girls her age ever since she conceived, reported London’s Daily Mail.

“When my friends see my bump they say they wish they could have a baby, then three weeks later they’re pregnant and don’t know what to do,” Neal said.

“It seems to be fashionable to get pregnant. … Teenage girls think babies are cute, but they forget the physical side of being pregnant, then having to give up your own childhood to look after a baby,” she told the paper.

Neal says she got pregnant the first time she had sex with her 13-year-old boyfriend.

Family campaigners say her comments show how current sex education policies leave teens with the “ridiculous but extremely worrying” idea that having a child is comparable to buying a new handbag.

Neal’s comments come as figures show England and Wales have the highest rates of teenage pregnancies in Europe — with the biggest growth among girls under 16.

  1. I don’t think being pregnant at 14 is as bad as everyone is making it sound. Forget about the dirty nappies and the sleepless nights for a second and think about the love. My friend had a baby at 14 and she has made the best mum in the world. She was being abused by her mum so maybe she just wanted someone to love her, we’ll never know. So please stop making the nasty comments because I think I would rather have a baby at 14 than 50. I hope Kizzy is really happy, Good Luck! xxxxxx
