How do i get my SD to have an abortion?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 How would you go about telling your seventeen year old step daughter that abortion is the best option?

She found out she was pregnant and wants to keep the baby because shes SO sure that mr. perfect *babys daddy* are going to stay together forever. They have only been seeing eachother for three months and he has already cheated on her a few times.
She is a senior in high school but will probably have to take the year over again because shes pretty much failing every class as is. Her argument- She will try harder now that she has someone else to think about.
She is immature and i know she wont wake  up in the middle of the night with a newborn. She refuses to change diapers of any sort and when my son was an infant she complained about his constant crying ALL the time. I know she is not ready for a child.

Is there any way i can legally force her to?

NO you can't force and it's not your decision, not your baby. Thank God.

 Well her dad agrees with me that she should have an abortion or give it up for adoption.

Quoting JenB1983:

Dude, you aren't even one of her bio parents. If THEY can't forcevher to terminate, wtf makes you think you would be able to?

Crap? If she decides later on she doesn't want to keep the baby, adoption is the best answer. Not killing her unborn. How do you know she didn't use a condom and it failed? It happens. My 2nd daughter is a bc baby. I was taking the pill after our first was born and clearly, it didn't work. I was pregnant when my first daughter was 6 months old.

 I have shes 100% convinced she is keeping it. She said she doesnt believe in murdering an innocent child. I told her its not a child yet but she wont listen and is shoving all this pro life crap in my face. I feel bad for her but she should have used protection and birth control!

Quoting catrig:

No, and you shouldn't.  What you should do is give her all her options in a non judgemental way.  Hope for the best.

No you can't force her to have an abortion, but you could push her down the stairs.

Get her on the path to getting a job, her own apartment, and information for pa so she can be on her own and care for the child herself. If she sees you won't be taking the responsibility for her then maybe she will wake up. You should not ask her to get an abortion or she will hold it against you. Show her her options at the same time as giving her the plan for her to do it alone. Don't forget to offer adoption as a choice too. Make sure she knows you will support her and help her out when you can but the child is her choice and she is choosing to be an adult. Being an adult is not fun lol
