Why didn't her mother actually do something like take her to a doctor? Protecting her privacy? What a fricking cop out!

The facts on this tragic case probably will not be known until this girl's trial, if she has one.

Many girls who end up doing desperate acts like this often have strongly ANTI-CHOICE parents who would either have kicked them out of the family home for getting pregnant or forced them to be mothers at 14 or 15. The girls probably don't get much, if anything, of sex education either. Uninformed or uneducated parents usually give their daughters the stupid "just say no" speech and not much else.

Terrible cases like this one illustrate the fact that teen sex is a BAD IDEA. Girls who don't want to end up pregnant and stuck with a baby in their teens would be wise to stay sex-FREE (meaning free FROM sex) while in middle and high school. Keeping their freedom to BE normal teenage girls; that's the best reason for girls to tell guys who pressure them for sex to take a hike.
