    list it with all the options and let them decide? YES

  • No, I would recommend adoption if they didn't want it. If they chose abortion, then thats their choice.

  • I'm pro choice but I would never recommend anybody at all to get an abortion. I simply support the woman's decision to do so. If My best friends daughter wished to obtain one then I would support her decision but I would never say "hey your daughter should just get an abortion." that is not for me to interject.

  • In some cases, yes. It would depend on the situation. And of course the choice would be hers... I'm assuming you're asking about advice you would give when asked.

  • No, I would offer support and options, but not suggest a route. It's their choice, they have to live with. No one else should be making it for them.

  • No. They have to find their own options but I'd be supportive

  • I agree with the #1 response. I'd list the pros & cons of every choice available, and let them make the decision. If they decided abortion ON THEIR OWN, though, I would support them 100% because that is a tough road to go down alone (as I know from experience).

  • Yes. I took my sister to get an abortion when she was too young to be able to take care of a baby.
