"You seem to want her to both continue the pregnancy AND not let anyone know about it. You can't do both."

Sure you can. When I was a high school sophomore ('74-'75)) a freshman girl I knew got pregnant. She left school for the duration of her pregnancy - she may have been home-schooled, I'm not sure. She came back after the baby's birth, resumed her studies alongside her peers and went on to graduate high school pretty high in her class, and go on to college. She didn't march around showing her ultrasound pictures, or the results of her recent doctor's visit. It was something that happened, and she and her family dealt with it discreetly. They didn't hold her up as some kind of role model, because they knew that she wasn't.
