  • I'd encourage her to keep the baby and finish school and be smart about it, or if she wanted to do adoption id support her too

  • I would talk to her about her options and help her make the decision that is best for her and the baby.

  • I don't know. My oldest is only 10 right now.... but if that where to happen at 13 I would cry.... then I would let her know what her options are and go from there.

  • although I do not believe in abortion unless it's life threatening. Even then I would pray that god would be forgiving and merciful.

  • I would support her and if necessary take over the responsibilities of bringing up her baby. I would help her be a mother but at the same time would take over as much as I could to help take the pressure off if it is too overwhelming. It depends though on how my child feels about the situation but I would hope that they would not want an abortion and I am not sure a 13 year old could make that decision. I think it would depend on the maturity of my 13 year old and whether I could really leave the decision 100% in her hands.
