Say your teenage daughter gets pregnant. You believe abortion is wrong. You try to convince your daughter that it is a sin & she should give her baby up for adoption, but she won't agree. She insists that abortion is not wrong or sinful & believes it is absolutely the only option for her. Would you sign for her to have an abortion?

Answered at 2:30 PM on Nov. 13, 2009 by: Anonymous If I allowed her to abort her very first child what would I say to her when she is an adult, feeling guilty because she finally understands what she did, and she asks me why wasn't I strong enough to keep her from killing her baby?
And if, as an adult, she hates the child & asks you why you didn't allow her to get the abortion she wanted, sinks into a depression & kills herself because she feels out of control of her life? There seems to be just as much to worry about whichever decision you make, if you are making the decision for her IMO. Your point is valid, but it isn't a foregone conclusion that she would feel guilty. The way I see it, making the decision for her is the danger.
