I've quite literally failed as a mother. I taught my daughter abstinence and also safe sex for if that failed. We went through it. I trusted her but at the same time gave her boundaries and I felt she wasn't lying to me - well it turns out one night when she was at a 'sleepover' (I called her friend's mother, who also lied to me about her being there) she was actually having sex with a boy and she's now pregnant. My first question is would you confront this mother for lying to you?
Secondly I want advice please on how to deal with it? She wants to get an abortion but I really don't agree with it at all - in my mind she's now harbouring a life in her womb (she's 11 weeks along at the moment) and I feel for that life and believe that they have rights that rival my daughter's. Advice please?
I'd worked so hard for this not to happen but I realise all I can do now.
Lastly how to calm DH down? He's in uproar.

I don't think you failed as a mother, your being way too hard on yourself. I would confront this friends mother, not because your DD is pregnant, but for lying to you. I wouldn't waste a lot of time and energy on her. As for your DD wanting an abortion, that's a hard one, and unless your ready and willing to take care of this precious baby, I don't know what to tell you to do. Good luck hon and prayers are up for you..........
