Abortion is like killing someone. Period.

she's under 18, not an adult yet but did things that only responsible adult has to do.... well this is really very hurting for her parents. but doing another wrong thing like abortion can not solve a problem. does her parent know about this already? i think she really needs to tell them. i will pray for her.

No, she hasn't told them yet and I'm pretty sure she's not going to because she's really up to doing it. I was with her last night and we talked about it again and she's really going to do it sometime this week. I really appreciate your concern though. Thanks so much for the prayers as well.

From someone who had an abortion when they were young and stupid. I can you that she will have to live with it haunting her the rest of her life.I think of how old my child would be today. I wonder if it wwere the little girl I wanted. I wonder if God punished me because of my two miscarriages after that. Nothing but guilt for the rest of my life. So tell her that is what she has to look forward to.

I'm very sorry you feel God has punished you by having two miscarriages and I am sorry you feel you made a mistake. Not every woman feels the way you do after an abortion though. Miscarriages happen naturally to many, many women & it honestly has nothing to do with past pregnancies. I wonder if you were pressured or talked into terminating by your parents or partner, and if you were I can see how that could further impact how you feel today. I support choice, that includes women having the choice to continue their pregnancies if they wish-it does not include having outsiders force their opinions on pregnant women. I hope that you are able to let go of your guilt & recognize that you did the best you could at the time.

Tell her that she will still end up giving birth to it...only this time she will actually get to look at it before it gets thrown out. they only cut the umbilical cord & then it's like a misscarriage, you still have the child & it can stare up at you. Trust me it haunts you forever.

what are you talking about? How is a termination going to end in birthing it, seeing it & having it "stare" at you? I've seen dozens of POC containers, both from early terminations & from natural miscarriages that had to be removed with a D&C. There is no face, no body to speak of, no eyes, and it isn't "birthed". A pregnancy under 12 weeks fits in a container about the size of a deli cup. It's not much different visually than a heavy period.

I think that she should have her shittt clamped shut so she will never feel anything there agian. Stupidity on this is why so many kids dont have homes and have to be adopted but I would rather see kid adopted then killed any day.

For every person who truly is "pro-life", who honestly views conception as the beginning of life & just wishes to preserve/protect life, there seems to be a dozen nutcases who are just sadistic, anti-women and overly opinionated. What does her God-sister's termination have to do with children not having homes? By terminating she's keeping one potential child out of the foster care/adoption system. In civilized societies we do not punish people for making poor choices by mutilating them. I do not believe the OP stated how her GS came to be pregnant. Whether it was lack of birth control, or birth control failure. It's disgusting that some would think either of those are good reasons for harming her.
