Recall last year when I posted about a pregnancy pact in an all-girls Baltimore school and was lambasted for accosting and shaming black girls unfairly? Well it seems like the digital online magazine, Clutch has discovered a Facebook Group photo of another group of girls, sadly all black again, and it reports that it is a trend. Author, Risa Dixon who is 26 and pregnant herself, blames shows like MTV‘s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom reality TV shows for glamorizing teenage pregnancy.I would say that studies show that teen pregnancy in the US and worldwide is going down so these pacts, if real, may be the minority and do not reflect generally teens nationwide. Still, if true, that would be a very disturbing trend.
I won’t go into it more, check out the article yourself over at Clutch.
