‘Pregnant’ schoolgirl display shocks Venezuelans

By Andrew Cawthorne CARACAS (Reuters) – A display showing mannequins of pregnant schoolgirls at a Caracas mall is shocking shoppers and stirring debate over sex education in Venezuela. The idea is to draw attention to an adolescent pregnancy rate they say is one of the worst in South America with one girl under-18 becoming pregnant every three minutes and 23 percent of all births coming in that age category. Her friend Auriselvia Torrealba, 20, was more sympathetic, seeing a higher purpose to the shock campaign. You see pregnant girls all the time on the streets.
