  • I'm on the edge about it. I think she had a point and I'm glad she spoke up about it, but I don't think it was the right way to go. There is a pregnant teen in almost any community that has had to go through what she went through while faking a pregnancy, but the real girl will also have real emotions and a real baby and would be able to relay those feelings and hardships much better than someone who didn't really go through it. I think she created a bunch of unnecessary drama to make a moot point.

  • I put the link there so you could look up the video.

    But basically a teenage girl faked her pregancy for 6 months. The only ones who knew it was fake was her mom , her boyfriend and her principal. It was a social experament.

  • funny thing is I went to a school 5 miles from there. It's amazing what she did and I applaud her from that however like bdflykisses said..she wasnt really pregnant..and being pregnant in high school is a hella job. She didnt experience the joy and pain of being a teen mom/pregnant in highschool completely. People need to learn to think before they speak. Just because you get pregnant in Highschool (like I did) doesnt mean you will never make a life for urself. the cruelty that teens and people have towards eachother is why alot of teen moms drop out and never succeed

  • Sounds like a good idea for a senior project to me. I'd be interested to know what her written report of the project said.

  • I think it is a great senior project, I only feel she should have told the truth to her boyfriend's parents and siblings and anyone else who's lives would have been affected by the "baby"

  • because the principal, her BF, and Mom were aware, I think it's a terrific project. She didn't do it for attention or malice, it was well thought out and profound
