It should also be made a state offence for adults that are unable to look after their children to have them. Have you looked at the state of some parents? I know from experience within both the health sector and the welfare to work sector that there are many adults that are not capable of looking after themselves never mind a brood of children. Also some parents hold such religious views that their child in this situation would not have a choice to make. In this situation there needs to be an advocate, somebody to speak for the youngster and assist them in making the decision themselves.
I can not comment on the girls, or her parents personal circumstances because I don't know, but I can say that I am glad that there are those within the teaching profession that still care. If the parents can not provide the assistance the girl needed for whatever reason, or the girl didn't feel that she would be listened to or allowed to make a choice should she approach her parents then it is good that there was somebody that she could turn to.
The teachers should not be prosecuted, they should be given medals for compassion and care.
