my sister is 17 years old and she just found out that she is pregnant. her guardians are trying to force her to have an abortion (which I don't think they have the right to do). She is currently staying with my husband and I for a few weeks until we figure something out. But the main problem is, the house that we live in now is too small for her to move in, we don't have the room and we don't have the money to go and buy another house. I want to help my sister but I don't know what to do. Any ideas anyone?Answer Question

yeah, I don't see how anyone can force her to have an abortion. Does she know what she wants to do yet? It's nice your helping her out best way you can, I'm sure she's scared. Does the place you live have an organizations that help pregnant teens? Our town has a non profit organization that helps all pregnant women with everything, right down to finding a doctor, waying out your options, finding clothes, diaper and food. If your not sure look in the phone book or contact your local DHHR. This is a very scary time for her, it's good she has your help. Even the couple weeks she can stay with you will possibly give her time to help make up her mind.
