    I assume everyone who's hating on her for having an abortion, you've given money to low income families or have taken in all the un wanted children people put up for adoption right?

    I think it is sad. I would love to have another child but can't. Everything happens for a reason but I wish she would not have killed it. I dislike it when people who is blessed enough to get pregnant but have an abortion when you got so many people in the world who want kids and can't have them. We are in the end of days.

    I agree to what she did, I mean she can barely take care of herself and child let alone another, though she shouldn't have been in the predicament in the first place. You got pregnant because you were being irresponsible and obviously she didn't learn her lesson from the first time. Is sex so important, set an example for your daughter, focus on her not your boyfriend. Once again am not against abortion, i am actually glad they would air on tv but hopefully bad remarkes coming your way by others won't turn you into these hypocrites who judge on your responsible decision, I have relative who say its murder, guess what they've have had abortions themselves, once or twice in their lives.

    I am a preschool teacher that works in a no-profit program. I recieve the worst DCF cases from the city and watch how these innoccent children suffer in their homes, when you tell someone that it was wrong to have an abortion you do not have an insight on their home life meaning that because you are so against abortion you would rather a child come into this life and go thhrough deplorable circumstanses. Birth control is also 99.9% affective there is always that .01% percent chance, it is possible and does happen. Every child does deserve a chance but the right chance not an unhappy life.

    She made the decision that was best for her and she did say she was on birthcontrol. were you guys that didn't agree with her decision going to give her a penny in helping her take care of the baby if she would have kept it. I didn't think so.

    This is ridiculous, abortion is not a form of birth control. Use protection if you don't want to have a baby. The pill, condoms, spermicide, there are endless options here. If you aren't responsible enough to prevent an unwanted pregnancy then don't have sex.

    To: Abortion IS ok - No, I would not come to your house to feed, clothe, support your child. But I would have adopted it. And so would thousands of other women who crave a child with every breath they take. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year and once again today, I started my period. The gift that you've thrown away baffles me and I hope you are tested like this sometime in your life to realize the full impact of what you did. I'm a Christian and I'm Pro-Life and I'm not judging you, but I am very sad for you. My sister was adopted and my husband and I are now looking into adoption and for the life of me, I can't understand why so many people throw away what another person would treasure with their whole heart.

    I was 23 years old and had an abortion, I do not feel guilty for what I did nor should someone make me feel guilty. You have no idea who I am, what my situation is. I also agree that there should be some law with these teens getting pregnant. They think they know it all, but they are wrong. Also for all those ANTI-ABORTIONISTS: you say say i am wrong for what I'm doing well are you going to come to my house and help raise/feed/clothe/support or educate that child? If not then please don't tell me how to live my life.
