i posted the story in the confessions group, but im just going to cut it short here since i have a limit and i want to ask this in the appropriate place
when my brother was 17 and a junior in high school, a new girl came to his school she was 18 and a senior,my brother started getting feelings for her. a month goes by and shes only hanging out with my brother and the club he was in, and the guys in the new girls class didnt like it so they started stalking her taking pictures of every little thing she did, they did this for a couple weeks.
one day at lunch while my brother and the girl were in the club the guys come in and grab her and pull her into the quad. they start pulling picture after picture out of her, her life ,where she shopped, where she lived, her secret fiance and her secret child that no one in the school knew about, started spouting off that her fiance was abusive but she wouldnt leave him, and the thing they pulled out last before my brother stepped in was a picture of an ultrasound, with the girls name on it, she was 9 weeks pregnant while on an IUD. my brother took her out of the situation and grabbed one of the bags with the pictures as he left and ditched school with her.
none of my family including me knew what had happened until my brother comes walking in the door with a bunch of baby toys and the girl walking behind him with her son, my parents were furious and tried pushing her back out of the door. my brother told them that she was staying until he got an apartment and moved out, my brother explained everything when she was settled in.
when she was 16 weeks my brother found an apartment and they moved out, my parents trying to break them up at every second, calling her a slut, saying shes cheating on him and stuff like that. well 3 weeks ago she had her baby girl, my brother held her hand the whole way, and i sat in the waiting room waiting for the baby and my parents, the baby came our parents never did, which i kind of understand. so 3 weeks have gone by and our parents are still trying to break them up. my brother and soon to be sil came over yesterday and told us they set the date for their wedding and showed us the dress and everything, my parents wouldnt talk to her and tried to throw the wedding book away. i could tell that my sil's heart was breaking again just like when she came and stayed at the house that first day.
so would you act like my parents if your 17(now 18) year old son did what my brother did?

I would never, under any circumstances act like your parents. Horrible & appalling behavior. The boys at that school were horrible. Also how would they know she had an IUD and was pregnant. This whole story is just horrible. I would not want my child to get involved in that kind of situation. However, that said I would never treat anyone much less my child they your parents treated your brother.
