Episode 4: Pregnancy Pact
Kristina and I went deep for you guys this week. I just got back from a vacation in my hometown so in honor of being home, we watched The Pregnancy Pact starring Thora Birch!
Sidney Bloom (Thora Birch) is a Internet blog reporter who travels to her hometown of Gloucester, Massachusetts to investigate a string of teenage pregnancies and stumbles upon a clique of gullible and naive schoolgirls who have formed a pack to get themselves all pregnant to stick together. As Sidney seeks more answers to why, she also hits obstacles from the conservative community who are in denial as to what's going on right in front of them and being forced to ignore the realty of teen parenting
