Update: No pact in Mass. pregnancies

Remember the teenage girls in Massachusetts who made a pact to conceive and raise children together? Well, it turns out, they didn’t. Via Reuters:

“There was a group of girls already pregnant that decided they were going to help each other to finish school and raise their kids together. I think it was just a coincidence…”



Mayor Carolyn Kirk said she and Superintendent Christopher Farmer have been in touch with Sullivan, and he was “foggy in his memory” about how he came to believe there was a pact.


“When pressed, his memory failed,” the mayor said.

Sullivan has not spoken publicly about his comments and has failed to respond to repeated interview requests.

On Monday, Kirk denied any pact existed.

“Any planned blood-oath bond to become pregnant — there is absolutely no evidence of,” Kirk said.

My first mistake was assuming a high school principal had any idea what was happening in their own school.
