14-Year-Old Has Been Pregnant 3 Times Already


pregnantA 14-year-old has already been pregnant three times, and her 35-year-old boyfriend is finally headed to jail.

Just when you thought it couldn't get more disgusting than the dad who claimed he thought he was having sex with his wife when he impregnated an 11-year-old.

The girl's older, but somehow this story is just as chilling -- perhaps more so.

According to the Vancouver Sun, restaurant manager Mark Tyndale (not to be confused with the basketball player of the same name) struck up a relationship with the child in January 2007.

By April, it was sexual.

She went through not one, not two, but three pregnancies in a year and a half. The first she aborted, sparking a suicide attempt. No cops were called in to stop it.

The second she miscarried. Again, no cops.

Somehow the cops finally got wind of this some time before the third pregnancy -- although she still managed to BECOME pregnant (and give birth) before Tyndale was ordered away from her.

The court has acknowledged the girl claims to have been a willing participant in all of this, but sexual abuse charges stand against Tyndale because, ahem, she was under the age of consent in Canada. 

The fact that he's plead guilty removes all hemming and hawing on this. Someone -- her parents? -- allowed a 14-year-old to spend an inordinate amount of time with a man two and a half times her age.

And then no one threw up a red flag before pregnancy number three?

In the West Virginia case, as creepy as it was, at least things were addressed immediately -- they didn't wait for the girl to be impregnated three times over.

In this case, Mark Tyndale may be the main transgressor. But it looks like someone else should be slapped with some child endangerment charges of their own.

How does something like this happen?

Wow, disgusting. How can someone not take care of this or CALL THE COPS!! I mean, someone wasn't paying attention and let this guy get away with it 3 times, maybe more. Gross.

Its the PARENTS that are NOT doing their jobs. So MANY broken homes now and single parents that have to deal with working and being both mother and father, it SIMPLY doesn't work, too hard. Then these kids get to be teenagers, get in with the wrong crowds looking for the LOVE and ATTENTION, especially young girls and this is where the Criminals come in. These older men BEFRIEND them and promise them the world and the girl being so young and immature gets sucked in. Even if you have two parents they are still BOTH working and NO time for the kids or Too tired.


Unreal.  :(

my sister had a friend who got pregnant when she was 14 by her bf who was 28. she now has three kids with him. but she's not with him anymore. her mom knew she was dating him but still let her go around him. i think it's the  parents fault. the girl probably had a relationship with him and being as young as she is thought she would be with him forever. her parents shouldn't have let her around a man so much older than her. i feel sorry for her child.
