Re: 13-year-old set to give birth in Swiss village

Quite common in the small villages back home...

Of course, I think this is a much better news story - caught drink driving while pregnant at the age of 14: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=10554240

So this is the Local's reaction to our anatomy threads. Rather lame.

Re: 13-year-old set to give birth in Swiss village

This news was in the 20 Minutes this week.

The village is near the IKEA shopping centre on the Bern-Zurich autobahn. The village is also famous for having the womens' prison next to the village, but obviously the prison has no other connection to this story, but was probably, as Tom says, involved in the imprisonment of wayward girls.

I suppose the kids will be OK finding babysitters for the next few years!
