A 13-year-old girl in a village in Bern canton is expecting to give birth this April to a child fathered by her 14-year-old schoolmate. News of the teenager’s pregnancy has spread like wildfire in Hindelbank, a village of 2,000 people, and has become the main topic of conversation at the local secondary school, newspaper 20 Minuten reports.
The 13-year-old girl was not known to be expecting a child until she was five months into her pregnancy, reported newspaper 20 Minuten. “An abortion was out of question at that time,” a close friend of hers told the newspaper. She also explained the father-to-be had taken the news well and that the young couple were still together.
So sad. So absurd. He took the news ‘well’? He’s 14. He doesn’t have any idea of what being a parent is. Oversexualized children having children. Tragic.
