And in fact, if she had some kind of chronic medical condition, and there were two possible treatment options (let's say, chemotherapy v. surgery to remove a tumor), you would probably make the call for her as to which treatment she should receive. Why is abortion the one and only medical procedure where she should be able to make the call?

What if your daughter was this girl, who became pregnant at the age of 5? Lina Medina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm trying to see where people will draw the line here.
If my daughter is of normal, childbearing age (so not in the case of a 5 year old... but lets say 12, 13, and on up) the decision is hers because it's not my body. I will NEVER force an abortion on my child. Why? Not my body. It is always an option if she wants it, if she feels its best then we would go for it. I just don't feel it's my choice to make that decision for her. My sister was raped at 15 and had a baby from it... my parents let her make the choice as to what to do. It's important to us to make our own reproductive choices. So honestly, while I may not want a daughter that is pregnant at 13, I will not force her to make a decision she doesn't want to make. It's not my body. Not my choice.
