Face it, female organs work, females get pregnant, ok with that said, if the female is under age, it is the parents responsibilty to continue to raise the under age female and the child of the under age female and training for both parent and child and grandchild will take on much needed and much more deepth. What happens at this time will take on monumental meaning in the years to come, you must be extra, extra careful in your sincerity and your patience

if i had a girl and she became pregnant at 13 I wouldn't let her abort it the only way I would let her is if it endangered her life otherwise she would have to take responsibility for her actions. I would make her care for the baby while finishing school. I think her education is important and she would have to finish school.

When my daughter was 12 she was raped by her friends 21yr old brother, he already had several babys with other young girls. At once she didnt want to have the baby,Iwould not have wanted her to have a baby at this tender age. I would have had to look after this baby while she went to school, how could I, I would be constantly thinking about the rapist. He went out of town in a hurry after someone gave him what he desereved.

I am againts abortion in cases where someone gets pregnant by not protecting themselves they know the risks involved but in some cases I agree with it Like if the mothers life is in danger, or if rap is involved, or if the baby isn't going to live after birth. In the case of your daughter I agree with it. Your daughter isn't responsible for the actions of someone who knows better the to force a child into something they didn't want to do. He was an adult. And I'm sorry that it happened to your daughter. I wish you all the best.

Then we need to talk. I, among millions of other people cannot have children and would love to ADOPT...there is no reason why a baby should die when there is some loving family out there that could take it in and care for it like it was their own. Have a great evening!

This baby is your grandchild and so precious. If you cannot provide for it, please give it the greatest gift anyone can provide, LIFE. Adoption is a gift, to the child as well as the potential adoptive parents.

It's not the baby's fault. Never is. I'd be askin' some deep questions on who got her pregnant and how old.

this is a very difficult topic. I had an abortion at a fairly young age, i was 15 and i had no other choice, very difficult circumstances, but id like to think no matter what age my daughter is id help her and guide her in the right direction. But i still dont know whether i would be for it or against it. As i regeret having had mine. :(

Im sorry to hear that you are living with regrets like this. It must be hard. Do you think young girls who have abortions understand the significance of what they are doing? You said you had no other choice and I make no judgement on you for making the decisions you have, its just a thing I worry about. Young girls are often in denial about the pregnancy and just "want it to go away" and abortion is seen as the solution. Untill they are older and realise what they have done.

I think I would encourage her to have the baby and give it up for adoption. I believe in a woman's choice but I could never do it myself of let a child that young go through it. It isn't just about killing a baby but there is emotional trauma the child will go through. My niece told me she got pregnant at 13 and her mother and father forced her to have an abortion. She was 17 when she told me this and no one else in the family knew. She was very upset about it and regretted it very much. It haunted her. She kept wondering what her baby would have looked like and what he would have been doing. She is 22 now and has 2 children and isn't capable to take care of them so no doubt she wouldn't have been able to care for that child almost 10 years ago but I think it really screwed her up--being forced into it.

+ Not everyone who gets an abortion regrets it. Just because you know someone who has regretted it does not mean that everyone is the same way. I was under the impression that we call that stereotyping. I am sorry about the situation that your niece was forced into. But I also believe that people have the right to choose for themselves. My body. No one can own it but me. + A fetus is not a baby. One is a medical term, and one is pretty much a general term. + The adoption system is over crowded and biased. There is a good chance that the child will not be adopted unless it is white and healthy. I hope you realize that there is no guarteen that someone will adopt the child, and that it will live a good life. What I am saying is that I feel that putting a child into the adoption system can be considered cruel. You are pretty much screwed for life if you are dark-skinned, mixed, etc.

I am for abortion whether its with respect to the above situation or not....If someone is not comfortable with having a kid...then its better not to bring the child into the world rather than not provide it with love, care and the basic requirements later...

Perhaps we should give more supervision on our children. They are too young to make reasonable decisions

NO!! I dont believe abortion by any mean. She was the one who got into bed with the boy she would take full responsibility for it. It wouldnt matter if she was 13 or not. She wanted to act like an adult I would treat her like one. I hope that I will be able to raise my children to be smarter then that.

I would be for abortion in that case. A 13 year olds body is not ready to be having kids. She may be able to but shes stills growing and developing, not suitable for having to care for two.

NO. You will regret that for rest of your life. As a mother you should give moral support your daughter which she needed it most. Dont give her any negative reaction as much as possible. She got pregnant.. WHO CARES! Maybe that child is gift to your family, who knows?

No no.. My daughter is not pregnant. My point is, is that some people say that they are for or against something, until it happens to them. Please, set an example for you children..OMG..Put some clothes on.

I think my role as a mother would be to help my daughter no matter what. I wouldn't think of the people and what they might say. I wouldn't even think about her school. I would think only for this little human being growing up in her tammy. I WOULD HELP HER ALL THE WAY. aFTER ALL BECOMING A MOTHER WHEN 13 YEARS OLD IS NOT SO BAD IF YOU HAVE THE HELP OF YOUR MOTHER.

I would still be against abortion if it was my 13 year old daughter that became pregnant. How will she ever learn to be responsible for her actions if I don't make her deal with the consequences? Every situation, even a bad one, can be a learning experience and will make us stronger if we face up to it.

For me personally, I would never be ok with abortion, not even in the case of rape. I would hope my daughter would make the same decision.
