I do not believe in abortion, so I probably would have given the baby up for adoption. I know that it would have been the hrdest thing that I would ever have to do, but I would have to think of child's life and not mine.
I got pregnant my Jr year in high school. I had Kinzy in Oct. of my senior year, by c-section and went back to school 3 weeks later(my hs only allowed 2 weeks leave, but I took 3) I graduated a semester early(I am soo gald I took extra classes my soph and jr year!)and stayed home with kinzy. If I could do it all over again, I would still keep her!! She is my baby and I love her with all of my heart and soul!!
I also went to school with someone that got preg. in 8th grade. She had her son the day after our 8th grade year ended.(when she went to have him, there were 2 8 year olds in there having babies, 1 had twins). I felt really bad for her! I dont know if I could have handled a baby at 13.
OK, I havent read the other replies... so please excuse me if I'm reiterating a point that has already been made.
I personally would NOT have had an abortion in high school. I know a girl who had TWO children by the beginning of senior year, and this was at a college prep school (not a private school) and we had to take 7 classes every year - even senior year. She also had a job. This girl was seriously not so smart. I mean, not the pregnant part, but I think she may have had a laerning disability or something.... but she plowed through school and had a higher GPA than I did. If SHE could do it, so could I. My cousin also got pregnant at age 15 and had the baby... Her parents were very supportive of her. Abortion has never been an option for me.
As for my child, yes it is SCARY to think that i could be a grandma by age 35. I absolutely REFUSE to pay for an abortion, though. I just can't do it. I believe it is wrong, and I can't do it. My step-sister has had TWO abortions since she was 21 - both children fathered byt he same man and her mom paid for them. That to me is dumb. If your 21 year old child gets pregnant, they should be paying for their OWN abortion... It shoudl not fall on the mom. That's just my personal opinion, and I understand that a lot of people will disagree with me on that. I have a whole issue with adults who have multiple abortions. It's not a form of birth control... and I am saddened by those who are careless b/c they can have an abortion as their "oops" plan
I can't say that I wouldn't support my daughter if she chose to have an abortion, but I jsut wouldn't pay for it. I have friends who have had abortions, and while I don't agree with their decision, it doesn't make me love them any less. Ifeel like it is a mistake, but I certainly have made MANY mistakes before, and I shouldn't judge them for theirs.
I think I could go on about this all day, but I'll stop
I think you all get my point, lol!!
