A Real Story Behind The Sun's

Thanks to BBC News, I found a link to a story in today's Sun, regarding three sisters who became pregnant simultaneously at 12, 14 and 16. This is worthy of a post for two reasons. On the one hand, it is clearly a story of social interest, but also in the way in which the Sun reports it.

In three blog posts over the next two days, I hope to examine three separate issues raised by this story:

1. Teen pregnancy and sex education in modern Britain
2. Agency, parental responsibility and the state
3. The Sun's attitude towards the story and media attitudes to privacy
