Nothing is that easy to pin down. There are 12 year old girls who are having what they consider consensual sex with peers.
The problem is that the 12 year old thinks it's okay to have sex at her age. Someone older did teach her that, even if her pregnancy is the result of a voluntary relationship with a same-aged peer. A matter of fact, one of the common behaviors of a girl who has been or is being sexually abused is promiscuity with peers at school. The promiscuity is frequently what the parents see first-then they tend not to believe the abuse allegations when she does tell them.
Dealing with things like this is what I do for a living.
