Wow, that's extremely authoritarian. A few things to consider:
- plenty of teens under aged 18 have children who they care for properly and those children turn out just fine, as do their mothers. I was one of them. Having a baby does not necessarily "destroy" their life. Forcing them to have an abortion against their will just might.
- is your daughter aware of this policy you have? Some might argue that this stance will leave you open to the "but mom, you said you'd get me an abortion if I ever got pregnant" defense.
- whether or not YOU agree with your child having a child, it's still not your choice. Your choice is to not support the pregnancy. It's your daughter's choice to abort or not, not yours, no matter how much control you'd like to exert over the situation.
Thank you to *~Joni~* for my beautiful siggy!!
