7 Teenage Girls Come Home From 5-Day School Trip Pregnant

Seven high school girls from Bosnia became pregnant on a recent five day school trip to Sarajevo, their country’s capital.

Understandably, parents are furious and want an explanation for the clear lack of supervision over their children.

There are few contextual details available here. All that’s known is that the seven girls, all ages 13 to 15, became pregnant on the trip. While parents are demanding explanations for the lack of supervision, health officials in the country say the news is indicative of another problem in the country: sexual education.

Students in Bosnia and Herzegovina receive little, if any, sexual education. Senad Mehmedbasic, a Bosnian gynecologist, says underage pregnancies are a big problem in the country as a result.

“That is the trend of today. But we cannot continue to allow our children to be educated about sex on the street and not in school,” he told Inserbia.info. “It is obvious that children do not have enough knowledge of health education so they engage in such activities, not knowing the consequences.

“We have to be more direct in the educational system, it must not be allowed that [the] street teaches children about intimate matters, and that they are later slapped by life.”
