Kizzy Neal, a pregnant 14-year-old, has told how having a baby is now regarded as "fashionable" among schoolgirls.
The teen, from Torbay in Devon, said: "When my friends see my bump they say they wish they could have a baby, then three weeks later they're pregnant and don't know what to do.
"Teenage girls think babies are cute, but they forget the physical side of being pregnant, then having to give up your own childhood to look after a baby. "It seems to be fashionable to get pregnant."
Family campaigners said her comments showed how the Government's sex education policy had left teens with the "ridiculous but extremely worrying" misconception that having a child was no different to getting a new handbag.
This is indeed a worrying trend.
