Wtf is wrong with you people?

Posted by   + Show Post
Why does everyone think that forcing a child to get an abortion is legal? You like the internet, google the damn law! You can NOT force your child, however young they are, to abort a baby. That is their choice, so suck up their decision! A child in TX is legally emancipated when they are pregnant. That means you have nooo sayy. This is true in almost all states. But in the US as a whole, it is still illegal for you.to force abortion on a child.

Clarification:****
Yes, it is illegal to force a.child into abortion.
And immoral, but i dont see any of you so called mothers having morals.

Dont twist.my words, you're an idiot if you can't argue with me w.o making shi# up.

Im not saying you have no emotional control over your child, im sure you can talk you child into jumping off a bridge if you wanted to im saying you are wrong for this and you need to respect your.child's decisions, they will learn.

Noone said 13... I said 'child'. Unless 13 is the only age a child is and im just completely unaware of this.

Dont fkn message me!

And no, i was 18 when i got pregnant. My parents were happy. I support myself. My husband does too.

Last but not least... Your not the ruler of your daughters vag, she is.

Last I checked, my children are my own, and you are just a random stranger on the internet with no say in my parenting decisions.

Pretty sure Val99 just showed you were wrong........ LOL

Don't quit your day job huh? Understanding the intricacies of the law isn't for everyone. Even a lay person should know that nothing is black and white, and every case is a drawn out process. Judges do tend to follow past rulings though, so I'll take the word of an actual lawyer over the ramblings of a supposed "law student"

Quoting nnjohnson:

This actually is true in tx. Considering im a law student,.i should probably know. but (especially now days when everyones getting pregnant) there.has been plenty of times that a parent could not do anything about their 14/15yo moving out bc of their pregnancy. The police,nor judge could force them back home.


Quoting Anonymous:

that isn't true in texas if under the age of 18. the baby is the teenager.responsibility, but the teenager is still the parents. however no one can force a person of any age to get abortion

Exactly what I was going to say.

Quoting AnnieGoolaheey:

You also can't force them to stay pregnant, but there  are women on here who say they would.....

Not only is it illegal to force  them to have an abortion, & that includes threatening them or telling them that they have no other choice...in most states if the child is under 16, its also illegal  to kick them out, so wake up. They are MEDICALLY emancipated, which means that they decide everything that happens with them & their baby during pregnancy, but afterwards the child is still your responsibility, & no you can't force adoption either.

You can not force them.  However you can decide if they will continue to live with you or not, after they make their decision.  My rule, no one has a baby in my home, other then me.  My two girls knew the rule, followed the rules.  They are adults now, I have no grandchildren, obviously they took me serious.  Which is good, because I was serious.

I'd encourage abortion until the cows came home and the horse was good and beaten. No law says I can't instill that choice and make it rule over the others. At 13 you are NOT able to make that decision on your own I don't care how mature the kid thinks she is. My life would be fully affected by her decision just as much as hers. So you bet I'll be cramming the idea of abortion into her head. YEP!!!

because i am not raising their child. Old enough to do the deed...old enough to rear your own and care for them.


Quoting Anonymous:

I think they think that would work because they'll tell the child if they do it they will disown them or kick them out. I think its disgusting ppl would pressure a child into something like that. Ok the kid fucked up and got pregnant. Why not support them in whatever decision they came to as opposed to pressuring them to make a decision that would appease you?
