If i was single and find out I was pregnant. One wrong plus another wrong doesn't make a right. A baby in the womb is already a life, no matter how little it is. I believe in preserving life. So my choice would be to keep it or to give it up for adoption. Now, if I have the means to support the baby then by golly I'm gonna keep the baby to the best of capacity. but if I'm a teenager and all those blah-blah, and if the father refuses to support me, then I might put the baby up for adoption but that would be the last option. If my parents will be willing to support me throughout my pregnancy and eventual parenthood, I'll be glad to keep the baby again. I think it generally would depend upon the mindset of the people around me and the eventual life the baby would have with me or with adoptive parents.

keep in mind there are so many loving parents who want a child but can not have one and adoption is their only choice to start a family and for young teenage mothers out there who have their whole lifes ahead of them sometimes thats the best choice as painful as it is.

Now that i'm a grown up, I'd say if I was pregnant better yet if my daughter who is sixteen were to become pregnant I'd hope shed want to keep the baby, if not, adoption. Abortion I feel is wrong I believe every pregnancy is meant to be and God has a plan for this life. I would want to b apart of this babys life forever. Abortion nor only takes a life but the lasting affects on the person that had it the guilt will last a lifetime.

I would keep the baby. It is my responsibility to use birth control, and if I didn't, well, it's not the babies fault. and I don't think I could ever give up one of my babies. I might feel different if I was raped I suppose, and I support womens rights in that situation of adoption or abortion, but other than that, I don't support abortion.

Coming from a family that has adopted multiple children. I can honestly say that if you were pregnant and single adoption is an incredible option. Though it may be the hardest thing a woman could ever do it has blessed the lives of multiple people in my family. If I were single and pregnant I would probably give the baby up for adoption because I could not provide the family atmosphere that I believe is ideal. That being said I think that there are situations where you should keep the baby if you feel that it is right for you but I would never abort the baby.

I would keep my baby because I love children. If I got pregnant in an attack I would most likely have my baby adopted. I wouldn't ever have an abortion because I am pro-life. I think a baby is an innocent one that deserves to love. He or he should be permitted to be born and to receive loving care. I was 36 weeks pregnant when it was discovered that my son had spina bifida. I was asked if I wanted to have an abortion and I said no way. My son is now 2 years old. I am divorced so I did become a single parent with my older son. Splitting up with a husband can happen to any lady.

if i am single and got pregnant, i would face it and do what is right, i will keep the baby. i have already done wrong by getting myself pregnant being single, i will not do anymore wrong with it, like abort it. i dont know if i can take it to put my baby up for adoption, for me it is not wrong to do that, if you really cannot support and provide for the child, then having it adopted by someone who can take care of the baby well will be okay. but knowing myself, i think i cannot make myself get separated from my baby. i will work hard for the child.
