    Teen fakes pregnancy for school assignment.

    TOPPENISH - A gutsy senior project by a Toppenish student has quickly earned her national attention. Gaby Rodriguez faked her own pregnancy for the assignment. When the story hit the paper this morning, Gaby was quickly overwhelmed with calls from national morning show outlets hoping to tell her story. Action News talked to her about why, and how, she pulled off the elaborate hoax.

    And she wasn't the only one hurt for the sake of her senior project, faking a pregnancy to see how people would react. To succeed in the experiment, she lied to almost everyone in her life. Only a handful of people, including her mom, boyfriend, and principal knew the whole thing was a hoax.


    "It was tough for all of us,” Orozco said. “We lied to a lot of people. A lot of people were upset when they found out."


    Most of her siblings didn't even know the truth. Neither did her boyfriend's parents, thinking they were going to be grandparents. It's amazing the lie was pulled off at all.

    Note carefully - her mother, boyfriend and school principle DID know it was a hoax for 'research'

    But regardless - I wouldn't tolerate lying FOR my child like the Mom did - I wouldn't put up with the humiliation and scrutiny of FAKING a pregnancy.

    I think what they've done is horrendous - ESPECIALLY because they ruined the boyfriend's good family name through this - the boyfriends parents *didn't know* - Imagine the emotional trauma they went through.

    What a bunch of bull**** - how unbelievably ridiculous that they let her do it. many of girls are REALLY pregnant and can tell you all about it if someone really wants ot know that badly.

    calm down, auntie, who REALLY has been hurt by this? and how do you know the family's good name is ruined? it's a tiny town, probably where everybody knows everybody else.

    I actually find this rather ingenious. If she wants to subject herself to the reactions of her peers then it is her right to do so. I doubt it damaged anyones good name. It only makes it bad because of how loose people's tongues are and the scrutiny she recieved. If she was pregnant, you know, it's none of their damn business.

    I thought it was a brilliant way to find out how someone in that situation would actually be treated... without actually BEING in that situation. Apparently her schoolmates agree, as they gave her a standing ovation at the assembly where she came clean, so to speak.

    It's like this... overweight people say 'you dont know what it's like, you're not fat"... so people have used fat suits and dont tv specials to show their treatment. Black people say 'you don't know what its like, you're not black'... so peple have used makeup, etc, to 'become balck for a day', etc. How is what thios girl did any different?

    Holy ****, the world is going to end. I agree 100 %. The project was freaking brilliant. It's basically performance art, and like the best art, it serves to bring a lot of attention onto an issue.

    She gets high marks from me for the strength of her personality and her personal drive. I cannot even imagine what all she went through doing this.

    Of the many reasons that this is just wrong. The School sanctioned lying. Great lesson.
