If you are pregnant, do you think it's a mistake?- Considering abortion?
How do you tell your parents that you're pregnant?
Are any of you going to keep your babies?
Tips on dealing with morning sickness please!!!
How do you know if you've felt your baby? Please share on how your pregnancy is going!

Does anyone think that it's morally wrong to have a baby as a teen? Even if you were raped?



i dont like the idea of abortion at all they shouldn't be allowed



I think that you are correct. If you legalize abortion, might as well legalize killing too!


Its not the same, so long as you abort early enough its just a collection of cells that isn't even conscious or alive yet. No different to using contraceptives to kill sperm cells, cos thats all they are, cells. Honestly if a girl gets raped when she is 15 and has to keep the child thats her whole life out the window anyway and also the child itself won't have the best upbringing in all likelyhood (prob no father around etc). Make abortions easier I say, its much kinder and better for society as a whole.


Thanks for the comment, but I just don't believe in it. Thanks for expressing your idea! ^_^


Why should we listen to a girl who got knocked up at 17?


I was raped. Not knocked up. I wanted to stay a virgin until marriage. Incase you don't know what rape is, it's when you are forced to have sex with someone or they kill you. Got it?

Well what do you believe is wrong with it? There are only benefits as far as I can see and major ones at that. Why would you want to take that away from people? I just want to hear the reasons behind your opinion thats all because to me it seems totally illogical.


I think that any type of occurence that leads to the death of a life is murder. Even if the cells or parts of the body are not fully formed, it is inevitable that the object inside the uterus is a fetus. Though many doctors do not consider it a fetus before a certain amount of time, it is still more than eligable to become a living breathing human being. If anyone cannot raise their child (reason being because they are to young of "not ready"), there are many barren women that are ready to adopt children. Just because you are pregnant does not mean that your life is over. Adoption can still let you live your life after you have the baby.


But thats just it. What do you define as 'alive'. Sure the fetus has the potential to become alive. But then so does every single sperm and egg. Also it would be much harder for me to give away a child that WAS alive by anyone's standards, knowing that it was my child. It really might screw up your head. Also what say does the father have? If the child is born he may not want it to go away. Once it becomes truly alive it becomes a true responsibility for BOTH parents.

I heard from my mother that her grandmother almost abortion her. But luckily she didnt. Her grandmother had about 4 kids. 3 was gone and 1 was left which was my mother. But her grandmother got arrested because of that. So i think abortion is illegal in some countries.

And the thing i really want to know..How did you get raped in the first place?

I think instead of abortion you should give birth then foster or have someone take care of him/her until - if ever - you can take care of them. I guess I find abortion for the most part wrong.

Either way, unless raped, I'm never gonna get pregnant until I know I can deal - hopefully after marriage.

but a fetus is growing, sperm and eggs are not.

This is such an awkward topic....abortion in and of itself is not a bad things, but it's about the circumstances that it's under. For example, in the United States, the foster care system is bad, and rather than leaving their child in the care of the system, alot of teen mothers would abort. Some older women would abort too due to medical reasons for example. Ruling something completely out is wrong as there may be legitimate reasons behind something that people deem is bad. Fetus's by the way, according to most doctors and medical professionals, are not alive, as they have none of the signs of being alive, they have no self-awareness, no sense of self, no feeling of pain, and have a lack of vitals early on (but not toward toward the middle to late stages of pregnancy, which is when vital signs start to kick in).

i see where your coming from but she could give the child to an agency that will be able to find suitable as parents. in the case of rape the same thing could be done, its not like once you have a baby you are forced to look after it, there are other options. as you not not liking the idea of adoption, your saying you would rather not give a child a chance at life? yea maybe they will turn to crime, but maybe they wont, would you really agree with a person if they said "im getting an abortion because this child may turn into a criminal", wouldnt it be better to give the child a chance then deciding what he will be.

i think its disgusting that people can have sex and not be prepared for the consequences of not having "safe sex". it should be looked down on, no matter how they got pregnant i still cant see a reasonable explanation for abortion.

i guess our views are opposite



I agree that it's disgusting that people have unprotected sex without being prepared for the consequences, but i just don't think that people who aren't responsible enough to remember to use contraception, should have to/ be allowed to bring up a child.
Sometimes there aren't enough people who are willing to adopt, so children get shifted around to different foster homes, without being able to settle down and lead a "normal" life.
I agree that children deserve a chance at life, but sometimes it's just not that simple. When i said that a child may turn to crime, i didn't mean it's acceptable to say "im getting an abortion because this child may turn into a criminal" (which i found very amusing because it would be utterly ridiculous that someone would say that lol), i was only suggesting a possible outcome that unwanted children face (an outcome that is more probable than in a wanted child).

Yep our views are quite opposite, & i find your views very interesting. I guess we will have to agree to disagree 8-)

My father is a psychiatrist. And I know that he says that any time he gets a case where a girl has gotten an abortion, she regrets it...after the fact. These girls had the same beliefs that you did. And after they had their abortions, they changed. Most of them have post traumatic depression disorder. Out of all the patients that had abortions that he treated for depression ended up commiting suicide. Many of them had dreams that the baby came to them and asked why she had killed him or her. It drove them mad, making them resort to suicide by hanging and cutting.
You are right, every sperm and egg does have the potential to become alive...but only when it is fertilized. Which of course (unless you are the Virgin Mary) is through sexual activity.
If you have to give up the child, through adoption, there are many things you can do. Some women make arrangements to still see the child. Some even give it to people until they are ready to raise it themselves. It all depends on what you want to do. Yes, it must be very hard to give up your child. How could it not be? It is a part of you. I'm not questioning that.
If the father wants to raise the baby, good for him. You as a couple have to figure out what you want to do. But ultimately, you are the one carrying the child in your uterus.
There was a case in which a doctor was performing an abortion on a woman, and during the surgery, the baby wrapped its finger around the surgeon's hand. If you don't believe me, go to this site so you can see the picture for yourself. http://www.lifesite.net/fetaldevelopment/images/samuel2.jpg
What the government considers "alive" isn't always true. Also, go to Google and search "abortion" in the images section. Look at the atrocity of what an abortion really is. Some of these babies end up in trash cans. It's true.

I look down upon anyone who gets pregnant while in High School. It just seems like such a stupid thing to do. They might be the greatest person in the world, but after they get knocked up, I think a lot less of them. Not sure if this makes me a bad person, I don't really care either.

As far as abortion goes, I am all for a womans right to choose. This does not mean that if my daughter were to have a baby at the age of 16 I would want her to abort, it means that I would give her the choice (as if I even have a say -.-). As far as weather or not I think the act is wrong it depends on the case.

Takes a very strong person to say such things, I'll give you that, you have Doom's respect. =]

I'm with you on the whole 'abortion is killing' idea. In most cases abortion just seems to be the panic button on underage sex accidents and I believe for those reasons the teens responsible should be forced to have thier child and damn well look after it. It goes with the quote "You reap what you sow".

Though I believe this I also believe in cases such as yours or other serious matters, such as giving birth could result in the child being born brain damaged. I believe abortion should be an open option. In all fairness I could never raise a rape baby, it's just the thought that you are rasing the offspring of a sick horny bastard...In a way it's sort of like condoning his act, he gets free sex, you're stuck with all the crap afterwards. You never asked to get knocked up in such a vhile fashion and it wasn't your fault. In this case I believe it's fair that you get to decide what happens to the baby.
Same for a potential brain damaged child, it must be hell both raising a brain damaged child, and living as one, it just seems unfair that they'd have to grow up in life without getting the option to do anything for themselves.
For these reasons abortion should be allowed.

There's my view on that anyway.

What if you are raped? If you knew that a highschooler was made pregnant not by their own accord (AKA raped) would you still look down upon them?
By the way, I agree with you. If you have decide to have sex, you better be ready for the consequences.
