It is very hard to deal with. It's scary because there is the boy's parents as well, and at times step parents. You can be telling up to 8 people depending on the particular family.

I do not believe in abortion. I wish that 12 week law applied here in Canada. :(

Crikey, the abortion law in New Zealand is up to 12 weeks. Thats scarry that you can get an abortion past 20 weeks. When you think about it thats half way through the pregnancy.
I think you'll find they may say they'd get an abortion now. But if they were to get pregnant and were to face that choice. I don't believe they would make it just like that.
I think adoption is a very hard thing for a woman to go through, as you bond with that baby when they're in the womb. Then to just hand him/her over I can't imagine ever having the strength to do that.
I think some girls go through with abortion because they think it'll be easier than to face their parents. Having got pregnant at the tender age of 20, telling my parents was a very daunting task. I can't imagine having to deal with that at 15.

I hear this at times too and it makes me so mad. I do believe that abortion is wrong because it is taking an innocent human being's life. But I know how you feel. People talk about it so carelessly; I even overheard a couple once who were on there way to have an abortion and they were joking about it and about pregnancy in general. I felt awful. I've never been pregnant but I have helped to raise my younger brothers and sisters, and I hope to raise a family of my own someday (when I meet the right guy). I've heard of lots of girls who do regret their abortion. Abortion is not the answer to the problem; it just creates a new one.

This study provides some very scary and real data.

The ratio for teens aged 15-19 is even more shocking. For every 100 babies born to Ontario teens, 152 are aborted. The study noted that teens “were by far the most likely of any age group to have an abortion rather than a live birth.” And since it excluded abortions for girls under 15, the teen abortion rate is even higher.


That's scary.

Not only that there are stories about babies born at 22-23 weeks of pregnancy that have lived and are now living life the the fullest. So if you can still get an abortion that far a long but yet a baby that old has a chance to live isn't that a bit scary? I'm just thinking about how many of those girls chose to make the choice late into pregnancy... Those babies could have all made it with the right medical care. If anything I think the legal time to abort a baby should be dropped to 16-18 weeks gestation.

Abortion is NEVER the right or the only "choice"...you were very strong Meghan for giving up your child. It does take a lot of strength to do that but I would consider it better for that mother to change her mind upon birth than to kill her baby. My mother was an addict and I was raised by my Grandparents...however, my two sisters grew up with my mother for most of their life. I know no matter what our situations were when we were kids, we are all glad our mother chose not to kill us. We each had our difficulties but we had OUR opportunity to overcome them, and we did. Now think of all those babies that have been murdered that have not had that "choice"

YES, I have been pregnant before. And I lost my baby. A baby I wanted to keep. So this is a very touchy subject for me, to hear girls talking about abortion so carelessly.

I never said it was impossible to not regret an abortion, I'm saying it's impossible to find a girl on this website specifically who felt they made the right choice and did not regret aborting their baby.

I'm not against having abortion as an option at all.

It wasn't that they said thy'd abort, it's that they are making the decision before they are faced with the actual situation, the real-life version. They aren't really taking time to think about it, and that's what disgusts me. Even if it's hypothetical, it's still a baby.


I am pro-choice only because, although abortion for me personally is not something I would ever do, I believe in people making decisions for themselves, for better or worse. But those decisions should be educated ones. Not just because you want a social life.
