According to public health officials, seven teenage girls from a small town in Bosnia became pregnant while on a five-day school trip to Sarajevo, the capital. 28 girls between the ages of 13 and 15 made the trip from their hometown of Banja Luka. New York Daily News reports that a quarter of them returned home pregnant.
The itinerary for the field trip included visits to museums and historic sights in Sarajevo, ranked among the finest in the world, but clearly that was not all that was on the agenda for these promiscuous teens. Obviously, their parents are livid and demanding an explanation from the teacher who was charged with supervising them.

Senad Mehmedbasic, a Sarajevo gynecologist, blamed a lack of sex education in schools for the underage pregnancies:
“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. 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.”
This is an incredibly worrisome report. Had it happened in America, there would be hell to pay. However, the massive amount of teen pregnancies in Bosnia and Herzegovina make it a bit more understandable. Let us know how you feel about these seven pregnant teens in the comments section.
