    IN the mid 1970s, when my sister was in high school, girls who got pregnant were forced to drop out and take home schooling. I surmise so no one would be offended by their swelling bellies. When the baby was born, it was promptly taken away and put up for adoption. The girls had no say.
    Things changed drastically by the time I reached high school age. There was an explosionof teen pregnancy in my junior year and many of my classmates were walking around in maternity clothes (two got married while still in high school). Most of them kept their babies and parented themseelves.

    Your grievance shall be avenged.
