Joseph Sullivan, the principal of Gloucester High School who told Time magazine that some of the girls at his school had made a now infamous "pregnancy pact," has resigned. Sullivan quit after the mayor of Gloucester and other school officials held a press conference (to which Sullivan was not invited) and denied that the pact existed. Sullivan claims that the mayor has "publicly slandered my reputation, my integrity and my intelligence." Hey, while adults are arguing over the existence of a pregnancy pact, teens are still getting pregnant thanks to inept sexual education programs that vilify sex and ignore teen girls' need for birth control and safe-sex options! How about they focus on that right now? [AP]
