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?

You have to be kidding, right? This girl was 11 when all of this started and somehow you think that this is her fault? This man is a PREDATOR! I guarantee you that any victim of this kind of abuse know about sex as well. The worst thing about it thought is that it is forced. An 11 year old can't consent to anyone, much less an adult. This poor girl is not at fault here. If you want someone to blame then blame the man who impregnated her. Now she has to deal with this for the rest of her life and take care of a child for the next 18 years.

Um...its not the parents fault that a 14 yrs old got prego..this girl could have a. Simply hid it from her parents b. Lied and she was going out with her friends and she was invovled having sex with this older dude it takes 2 to tango. So its 100% her fault she managed to get prego 3 times with this man she clearly knew what she was doing!

I'm sure someone will disagree wit this, but the clinic that performed the abortion should have been the ones to throw up the red flag.  I hate all this medical privacy stuff for kids. I know you can't control your kids every minute of the day.  If they're determined to do something, they're going to find a way to do it.  But, if doctors were required to notify parents of a child's pregnancy, maybe we would be able to talk to our kids and find out what's going on.   Until these kids are at the legal age of consent, then parents need to be notified.

where were the parents to stop this

Does no one think this 14 year old is "to blame" in some way? It is obvious that the man in question here broke a law. However, that girl knew what she was doing. She's underage, yes, but she is not a child and she was completely capable of making the decision to have consensual sex with this man.

WHERE WERE HEER PARENTS charge them with abuse and neglect

Despite society's best efforts to stop it, true love always finds a way!

Well, that was my first question: WHERE THE HELL WERE THE PARENTS?

I don't claim to know EVERYTHING that my kids do (well, mine are all 5 and under, so, really, how much trouble could they get into at home?) but geez, you've got to be living under a rock to not notice SOMETHING was going on with your child, especially something that major.

And what the hell took authorities so long to arrest this guy? A 14-year-old being pregnant the FIRST time should've been reported (and people TRUST abortionists? I don't think so. They are required, by law, to report anyone having an abortion under the age of 18 (17 in some states). Clearly, this 'doctor' dropped the ball).

The poor child...she's gonna need a lot of therapy to get over all of this.

As disguisting as the guy is, where the f*** are her parents, my oldest is 12 and I don't even let her go out with boys her own age, but this girl was with a guy old enough to be her father...The parents should be charged and sitting in jail with this freak

Nutty story. Kids are having sex at ever increasing ages and being exposed to porn via the Internet very early in life. Not like previous generations, when sex was something we found out about l8r in life. Kids and society are changing, and not for the better it would appear...
