The Pregnancy Project (2012)
A 17-year-old, attending a Washington state high-school, made her senior school project the treatment of pregnant teenagers by pretending to be pregnant.
Incredibly interesting premise, I somehow missed this when it came out or when the book happened.
Her single minded focus is crazy. She’s so focused on that goal and I get it, she’s put a lot into it, but she wasn’t the only one. I can only imagine what her boyfriend went through and she doesn’t seem to care.
I had friends pregnant in high school and I tried not to treat them any different, it’s been so long that I’m not sure if I did though.
Honestly, I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel after this movie. She didn’t like it when people pointed out how hard it was going to be, but, well, it will be. Being a parent when you’re an adult with an income is hard enough, but when you’re a teenager your putting your entire life on hold. She kept talking about stereotypes, that people shouldn’t just assume something, but the same could be said about any stereotype.
It was interesting and the fact that a high school student did this is pretty crazy. The book has been added to my to read pile.
