15 & pregnant.....

One of my fb friends posted this question and I thought I should post it here....
If your 15 yr old came home preggers would you make them get an abortion, put it up for an adoption, or keep it?

Me personally would make her keep it. I don't have the heart to make them get an abortion or give it up. If you grown enough to go out there and make an adult decision to knock boots than you grown enough to have the baby take care of it AND finish HS! I feel like if I make her go for the other options, she won't learn from her mistake.

  • I agree with you about keeping the child but it has NOTHING to do with "learning from her mistake"!??? What???

  • AGREED!!!!! If she had an abortion or gave it up for adoption, she will think that she can go get pregnant again and repeat the cycle.

  • Ummm the parent should have NO say so or opinion in the matter! If the child needs an answer she should turn to the Bible for Gods opinion. I was pregnant at 17 and my mom told me to abort. I refused and now I have a smart, beautiful 5 (almost 6) year old girl. My mom regrets ever saying that now. Something this "mother" should consider....

  • I would let her make her own decision, its her baby. I would take her to a counselor and make sure she knew her options. I would be there to help her if she wanted to keep it.

  • I think I would give her the choice, it's her body and I support her in any decision she made.

  • first, im not calling the baby a mistake, I was a teen mom as well. I learned from my decision which was having unprotected sex early.

  • I think it would be up to her but I would make sure she knew all her options.

  • First of all, you can't MAKE her do anything. I would hope she would give it up for adoption.

  • I feel like she's a 15 yr old child.....if my 15 yr old child gets pregnant, she's going to keep it whether she likes it or not. Im not gonna give her a chance to think "oh well if I mess up again, I'll just abort it" or give it away.
