Teen pregnancy poster child, the still unwed Jamie Lynn Spears, who just gave birth, set the media world into a frenzy when she made the announcement ninth months ago. She was all of 16 years old then.
Now the Zoey 101 star is being blamed for a spate of copy cat teen pregnancies in Gloucester, Massachusetts, according to Time — no less!
Not unlike a bizarro cult, 17 girls at Gloucester High School are in the family way after making a pact together to get pregnant and raise the babies together. None of the girls are older than 16.
Coincidence or not?
According to the report, Gloucester adults cited hit movies like Juno, Knocked Up which glamorize teen pregnancies to susceptible minds, a depressed economy and a seeming difficulty to obtain birth control for the mass teen prego baby blast.
And no doubt, America’s most popular, unwed 17-year-old baby mama – Jamie Lynn.
