Hypothetical question based off a post.

If your 12 year old Dd got pregnant and refused the options of abortion and adoption, would you assume she got pregnant on purpose? Would the thought even cross your mind?

  • It might cross my mind but I don't think it means that for sure by any stretch. Abortion and adoption are both big issues with huge negative consequences (of course, parenting is too). I don't think that choosing to parent instead of abort or adopt means she planned the pregnancy. Yes, it's possible.

  • It may cross my mind but I would hope that she chose to keep it based on me raising her to have those morals . That would be a tough situation though.

  • Well, some things you really have to consider are: depending on how mature she is and her size, labor could be a major surgery for a 12 year old... I would most likely force my child to have an abortion if she wound up pregnant at 12. That's not even a teenager yet... and I still consider that a child. If my Dd got pregnant at 12, I wouldn't give her any options.. and she'd be grounded from life and homeschooled til she was 18.

  • Luckily, I never had to go thru this with my DDs. But, no, I would NOT assume they had done it on purpose. I would KNOW their decision came from their morals and ethics.

  • Adoption and abortion would never be an option for my girls whether they did it on purpose or by mistake.
