I am sorry but this argument makes not sense to me. So, daughter is raped and she becomes pregnant. Let's say she doesn't know right away and first goes to doc at 12 weeks - or whenever I guess - it doesn't really matter. So, at that point the doc can already tell the pregnancy will be so complicated and if she continues she will likely die? Or are you talking later in the pregnancy? I'm trying to figure out what the possible situation would be where a doctor could predict so early on that the pregnancy will be SO complicated that the mom and baby will both die.

My sister just went through this last november. My niece got pregnant at 13,she's a very immature girl. My sister and everyone in her life encouraged abortion to her. She had one at 5 weeks thank god.

I was pregnant @ 16 with twins. I would NOT want my daughter to go through the whole teenage pregnancy thing esp at the age of 12 or 13.

That and I think my SO would have a stroke to say the least. Its just far too young

I fully believe all my children have the rights to their own body, which is why I did not pierce my daughter's ears when she was a baby, or circumcise my son - an abortion is much more invasive and i could never force her. My husband is catholic, and I am pro-life anyway, so I wouldn't even encourage it - much less force it. I would support her and be with her every step of the way and help her make the best decision for herself and her future - whatever that may be.

I am pro choice.... but if my daughter gets pregnant at any age under 18 then heck yes I would march her tooshie straight to the clinic.... wouldn't hesitate for a sec.... if shes under age its not her choice its mine.... and I think its ludicrous for people to let teens decide ... they r children and shouldnt get to choose something that could destroy thier lives... I will educate her and do whatever I can for her not to end up a pregnant teen but if it did happen then I would absolutly make her get an abortion. .. she dosent have a choice on that subject

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.

Oh yes she does have a choice, just ask any health care provider. I think your view is kind of extreme, and I find it demeaning that you would try to force something on someone under 18, ok I get them not making the choice 100% themselves if they are 14, but a 17 year old? You don't get to decide for her what she does with her body.

ETA: I find it pretty interesting that you dug this up to be your first post on JM. Seems like you were looking to get a rise out of people.
