Tough question.

If my daughter really didn't want to have an abortion, I can't imagine forcing her to have one (at any age). I'd be too afraid of the lasting emotional damage it could cause, (although I realize there could be some serious emotional 'issues' from being pregnant for 9 months and of course having said baby as a 12 year old for instance).

As far as raising the baby, I think we'd have to take into consideration a variety of external factors: her age, maturity level, her wishes, her relationship with SO (if there was one), etc. before we made any permanent decisions.

It's so hard to know exactly what I'd do in a situation without knowing all the details. I think it's easy to say I for sure would do this or that, until you're really living it, so I can't say with 100% certainty that I'd do this or that.
