What if you are only a young girl of say 11 years old and have been raped? Would you want that child to go through child birth and then raise a baby whose DNA you know nothing about?

i think it depends on the circumstances, there could be many good reasons not to have child.

Well, people who do abortions usually are not in a rational state of mind when doing so. They are in a panicked mood because of all the adrenaline rushing through their body, so they make a decision they usually regret sometime later in their life.

I'm unaware of any stage of pregnancy that causes adrenaline to rush through a woman's body. Labor releases some adrenaline, but that's a long time after the choice to terminate has passed. Further not every woman or even most women regret having an abortion. It's insulting that some people of the other gender seem to think women are overly emotional, irrational and unable to make educated decisions about their bodies.

It is sad that anyone would want to abort their child but they must have a reason for doing it.

It's not a child, it's a pregnancy. An early termination takes place long before there are life-sustaining organs formed and long before viability. It is no more a "life" than a fertilized egg is a chicken. Women choose to have abortions for a variety of reasons. It's not anyone's business what those reasons may be. But it comes down to a simple unifying reason, at this time this woman choses to not be pregnant. Whatever her reasons are beyond that, others should respect her decision based on that reason alone.
