hello!! i hope i never find myself in this situation because i dont know what i would do or say. i know everyones got an opinion-so im curious to know what you would do in this situation. a 16 year old boy got his 16 year old girlfriend pregnant. neither of them have a job-they are both decent students in school-theyve been together for almost a year, but they are only 16. the girl and the boys family are close. the mother of the boy told the girl that its up to her what she wants to do, but she really doesnt want her to have an abortion. she will help them with the baby-including take custody of it if the couple decides they really dont want to raise it. but she will NOT pay for the abortion. the girl still isnt sure what she wants to do. so if youre the girls parents, what would you do/tell your child?? i mean, besides the fact that you love her and will support whatever decision she makes... although maybe you wouldnt tell your dd that...maybe you would tell your dd that you love her but you wont support her if she has an abortion. i have 2 girls-8 and 4. i have no idea what i will do or say if my dd comes up to me at 16 and says im pregnant. im prolife-but i dont believe i have the right to tell others what to do with their life. a girl at work just took her dd to have an abortion-she was in the room with her-it gave me the creeps to listen to her describe what the procedure was. it made me a lil sick actually, but i dont believe i have the right to control another person. i dont think that makes me prochoice-i think im a cross between the 2. but wwyd in the above situation...
