TIME: High School Girls Make Pact to Get Pregnant

TIME Magazine reports that 17 high school girls are expecting babies in Gloucester, Massachusetts after making a pact to get pregnant and raise their babies together.  The most interesting part of the article was in the last paragraph, a quote by one of pactmakers’ classmates:

“No one’s offered them a better option.”
