I dont understand this...

Im 20 yrs old, Married, & more in love than i ever dreamed possable,I just think its so unfair... I see all these teenagers out there that range from 13 to 17 & are pregnant and are mad becuase they dont want to be and they are giving it up.. do you know how many truly want a baby and cant have one? i myself am one of those ppl... before you jump into bed carelessly, and have sex, and get pregnant so easily, think about all the other ppl out there that CANT have one, that can afford it, please don't have abortions, at LEAST put it up for adoption..

Yeah, that pisses me off too how most teens are careless, or they'll brag on and on about how they got "laid," then the next week the talk about how happy they are because the broke up with someone. I, myself, am 15, but I don't tend to get a long with my own kind--it's sad. Abortion, I'm not a fan of, but it's not my decision, so I'm pro-choice.

Re: I dont understand this...

That is definitely a good point! I believe that women should have a right to choose, but I disagree with people my age (I'm 17) who carelessly have sex without protection just because they can easily have an abortion. Abortion is a serious topic and should be a last resort in extreme cases. To me, sex is a serious thing, and so many people just throw it around as if it's nothing. So many girls say, "Oh, it's just ************," like it's nothing! You're sharing your body with another person... that's something! I totally agree with you, and I'm happy for you! Good luck with your marriage, I know you'll be really happy together. I hope you have luck having a baby or adopting one... There are many children out there who need a home and I'm sure you could provide one with a lot of love!

Re: I dont understand this...

Ferretlover, I understand what you're saying. I'm a bit older(22) and have two kids but ever since I was a teenager and saw other teens all around getting pregnant like it was no big deal, it really disturbed me. When I was a teenager, abortion wouldn't have even entered my mind(I'm very pro-life). I was told at the age of 14 I would never have kids. I got married at 17 and found out a month later I was pregnant. I had my daughter at 18 and I had my son at 20. Don't be discouraged, it could happen for you too. I was told by a doctor and a specialist I'd never be able to conceive and I proved them wrong! Good luck to you!

WHAT?

I don't like abortion, but chioce has to be allowed! I was young when abortion was illegal. Not only babies were dying, mothers were too! Our (USA) adoption laws suck... You have to have lots of cash, to even be considered. They would rather see a child waste away in an institution before even considering giving a middle-class childless couple, a child. They are saying "we would rather fill our institutions and whearhouse children in a loveless, cold environment, rather than giving up the child to a loving couple". It all comes down to money I'm afraid...
