Pregnancy Pact and Teen Pregnancy

pregnancy pact

Motivated by a real story, the movie explores the costs of teen pregnancy with a story of a fictional "pregnancy pact" set against the backdrop of actual news reports about teen pregnancy coming June 2008. Sidney Bloom/Thora Birch, an online journalist, returns to her hometown to check out the sudden spike in teenage pregnancies at her old high school. Almost immediately, Sidney Bloom comes up against Lorraine Dougan/Nancy Travis, the head of the local conservative values group and mother of Sara, a newly pregnant 15-year-old.

Meanwhile, the school nurse (Camryn Manheim) attempts to convince the school to give contraception to students to address the pregnancy epidemic but is met with great resistance from the school and community. As the number of pregnant girls increases to 18, a media firestorm erupts when Time Magazine mentions that the rise in the quantity of pregnancies at the school is the result of a "pregnancy pact" As the mystery unfolds about whether or not "the pregnancy pact" is true, Sidney soon finds out that all of the attention is disguising the much larger issues that are at the core of the story.

Casey Anthony Pregnant, Is It A Joke?

Casey Anthony Pregnant?

Are you shocked at the rumors swirling about Casey Anthony pregnant? Not really. A couple years ago, Casey Anthony mentioned she'd get pregnant in avoiding the death penalty. Based on Hollywood Life, she has recently said fellow inmates that the lady is, indeed, pregnant. Of course, as in her first pregnancy, Anthony has not named the father. I'm wondering if probably this was the main reason her lawyers filed a competency hearing last week.
This "Casey Anthony pregnant" may also explain the strange behavior this week when she was desperately trying to get Baez's attention at trial, and he pointedly ignored her. Casey Anthony looks to crave Baez's attention. While lawyers can become very close to their clients during a long, drawn-out case, in my 22 years experience in the legal field, responsible attorneys are careful to keep it at that.
Casey Anthony is reported to have told a fellow inmate that she is always "on time," but is 3 weeks "late" this month. Certainly, with the stress of being on trial for your life, this is very possible that your cycle would be off. Many women "miss" in times of crisis.
Could "Casey Anthony pregnant" story be true, or is it just another one of Casey Anthony's fantasies? Wouldn't a Casey pregnancy just be the ultimate "bombshell" in this sordid drama?
