Pregnant 14-year-old says it's 'fashionable' as four friends are also expecting

A pregnant 14-year-old has told how having a baby is now regarded as "fashionable" among schoolgirls.

Kizzy Neal has been asked to give advice to four of her classmates who have also fallen pregnant since Christmas.

The teen, from Torbay in Devon, said: "When my friends see my bump they say they wish they could have a baby, then three weeks later they're pregnant and don't know what to do.

"Teenage girls think babies are cute, but they forget the physical side of being pregnant, then having to give up your own childhood to look after a baby.

"It seems to be fashionable to get pregnant."

oh my god. No being pregnant isn't "fashionable". Im sorry but to think that is just dumb... I can't believe this. If you are really ready for a baby or it happens by accident (broken condom..) thats one thing but to do it cause you want attention or cause "everybodys doing it" is just not right and unfair to the baby :(

I'm 14 and if I were to get pregnant it would be because I was READY not because my friends did it...

you are all so so so stupid. you are only children! and to say you are ready to have a child when you are only 14? you are far from ready. let alone legal to have sex. a child is not an item or an acessory. it is a living breathing human. i find it really sad that you are all so young. act your age. really. where the hell are your gaurdiens and dignety? if you have and keep the child at your age you will ruin not only your life but the babys.
