Massachusetts teenagers go collectively insane...

Seems that 17 high school girls in the mostly Catholic town of Gloucester, Mass. became pregnant at the same time. Most are aged 16 or younger. It's no coincidence, they made a pact to get pregnant in sync so they could raise their babies together. It gets better:

Time said some of the fathers were men in their 20s. "We found out one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless guy," Mr Sullivan told the magazine.

Some blame the trend on films such as Juno and Knocked Up, arguably pro-pregnancy films that show young, unwed mothers, or celebrities such as Jamie Lynn Spears, the 17-year-old sister of Britney, who yesterday gave birth to a baby girl.
Yeah... sure... Juno.
