Pregnancy pact hoax?

Preggers You might remember that Time.com story from last week of Massachusetts teens swearing an oath to get knocked up, and then following through on said pact.

Well, the mayor of the Gloucester fought back against the besmirching of her town Monday.

The Boston Globe reports that there was "absolutely no evidence of" such a pact, and that the story's primary source -- the high school's principal -- had a "foggy" memory of who originally told him of such an agreement.

The mayor, Carolyn Kirk, has seen her sleepy port town turn into Ground Zero for the culture wars nearly overnight. The astounding story has raised questions about condoms in school and the Jamie Lynn Spearsification of teenage sex.

Oh yeah, and Oprah's people have called, too.
