My mom and i were talking abortion came up. My dd asked me what an abortion was. I told her when I had more time I would explain it to her. I don't know how too. Btw, i not pro life so i don't believe it is murder. I did say it is a way to end a pregnancy but then she asked me how.


Edit
She doesn't know because I haven't gotten that far yet. We have talk about sex, std, pregnancy. I won't stuff at her. I slowly explains things to her in time.

I would just tell her exactly what it is.

Be honest. She's 14, she'll google it if you don't tell her. Now is a good time for the options talk, as well as the contraception talk. It'll be a lot and she'll have a lot of questions. But let her know when someone is pregnant they are essentially faced with 3 options.

I'm appalled that a 14 year old doesn't know what an abortion is.
I would just tell her how it is. Terminating an unwanted preg.

Oh idk. I'm honestly shocked she doesn't already know what it is, honestly no offense. I have younger cousins 12-15 and they know what it is.

I find it very strange that a 14 yr old has no idea what an abortion is. Is she homeschooled?

Just explain exactly what it is and the different methods.

If my 14 yr old dd asked me what an abortion is, I'd know she was just kidding.  If anything, your dd already knows too.

If you don't believe it is murder then how are you pro life?

I, too, find it strange. Just be honest. Don't share YOUR opinions. Let her decide for herself. That means sticking to FACTS. NOT interpretation.

Just tell her what it is. She's not a little kid, she can surely comprehend it.

Exactly. Better from you than from Google.
