  • You need to think long and hard on this matter. I feel for you, being 17 and all but you took the chance of getting pregnant when you had sex with the guy. Now as a quick fix you want to abort, I'm sorry but you need to take responsibility for your actions. Have you concidered adoption? There are many families out there who would be willing and eager to adopt your unwanted baby. Just don't make any rash decisions that you will one day regret. Good Luck sweetie and God Bless.

  • Its a decision you are going to have to live with for the rest of your life. The ones that are going to give you advice {us} isn't going financially help you with that baby and if you do have the abortion the emotional stress may haunt you for a while. So its something YOU have to live with. Remember there are other alternatives.

  • so you had sex and now because you and the boyfriend are on rocky terms you want to kill the baby? Where was the birth control to start with since your so grown up to be having sex? If you think your old enough to be having sex then your old enough to deal with the consequences.

  • There is nothing wrong with abortion, it IS legal so it is not a crime to have one! I had an abortion when I was 22. I do not regret it, my ex boyfriend paid for it and we moved on with our lives.

  • Its always your decision bit you need to think about the baby too. Talk to the father and your parents and get their opinions and advise. I would personally recommend adoption because there are many loving couples who can't have children. I know its hard but hang in there. God Bless!
