  • You know what you want, but they have rules for a reason. How many teen girls say they never want kids, only to change their minds? Not to put you in that same boat, but you've got a lot of life ahead of you and it would suck to have a decision you made now prevent you from having more kids down the road when you're life is different, know what I mean? They've probably had young people do it in the past and regret it, I bet there have even been lawsuits by people saying that they were "too young to be entrusted with such a decision, someone should have stepped in and prevented it".

    Stupid lawsuit-happy society. :)
