Oregon High School Student Fakes Pregnancy For Class Project

  • Oregon high school student Maria Miranda faked a pregnancy for her senior class project by wearing a fake belly and posting sonograms on Facebook for six months. She got a fake note from a doctor about a positive pregnancy test and began wearing baggier clothes. Finally, she asked a few friends and teachers to keep track of what people were gossiping about her. How do we feel about these sorts of “social experiments”? [Mommyish via OregonLive]
