I have a 16 yr old daughter so Im right at that age. And she knows how I feel.... we have made no secret of our feelings. Killing your unborn child is simply wrong and a teenage mother is not in the best interest of a baby. We would ask her to put the baby up for adoption. But we have watched these shows together talked and talked and talked about it from all points of view. She knows we would be available and eager to help... but that would be our stance.
Of course you never truley know what you would do unless you were in that situation.... I pray to God my daughter makes better choice than to ever put herself in that position.

I had 3 boys and no teen pregnancies. My oldest son had a stillborn baby when he was 27 and has now had a vasectomy. My middle son and his wife have a 24 mo and my son was 25 when he was born and they had been married 2 years. My youngest son is 22 and is getting a vasectomy next month. We have a genetic disease in our family and my grandson has it. My oldes and youngest decided no more babies are going to have it. I may only have one biological grandchild.
They knew all about birth control, all the types, effectiveness, when to get it, how to buy it. I was a grad student and health science major when they were young and they were always going to health fairs with birth control booths. I used to work at Planned Parenthood as a lab tech.
