ABOUT THE PREGNANCY PACT

Inspired by a true story, The Pregnancy Pact explores the costs of teen pregnancy with a story of a fictional 'pregnancy pact' set against the backdrop of actual news reports about teen pregnancy from June 2008. In the film, Sidney Bloom (Birch), an on-line magazine journalist, returns to her hometown to investigate the sudden spike in teenage pregnancies at her old high school. Almost immediately, she comes up against Lorraine Dougan (Travis), the head of the local conservative values group and mother of Sara (Madisen Beaty), a newly pregnant 15-year-old. Meanwhile, the school nurse (Manheim) tries to convince the school to provide contraception to students to address the pregnancy epidemic but is met with great opposition from the school and community.

As the number of pregnant girls climbs to 18, a media firestorm erupts when Time Magazine reports that the rise in the number of pregnancies at the school is the result of a "pregnancy pact." As the mystery unfolds about whether or not "the pact" is real, Sidney soon realizes that all of the attention is disguising the much larger issues that are at the core of the story.

The Pregnancy Pact premiered at a time when nearly three in ten teenage girls in the United States will become pregnant. The teen birth rate is on the rise again for the first time in 15 years and one in six girls will become a mother by the age of 20. To raise awareness and provide educational tools for prevention, Lifetime partnered with The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and is providing free resources for both parents and teens on myLifetime.com. Lifetime aired a public service announcement with Camryn Manheim that encourages teens and their parents to talk openly with one another about relationships and sex in efforts to prevent teen pregnancy. The network is also offering the film free of charge to educators and non-profit groups.

The Pregnancy Pact is produced by Frank & Bob Films II for Lifetime Television. Robert M. Sertner and Frank von Zerneck (Lifetime's Acceptance, Lifetime Movie Network's Natalee Holloway) are executive producers. Rosemary Rodriguez (Acts of Worship, Rescue Me) directed from a script written by Pamela Davis (House) and Teena Booth (Lifetime's Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal, Lifetime Movie Network's Natalee Holloway).
