My 16 year old sister had an abortion about a month ago, & she cries a lot because she wanted to keep the baby so bad...but, my mother made her get an abortion..
I feel so bad for her :( I've never been in this situation, how do I comfort her, like what do I say to make my little sister feel better ??

I don't think there really is anything you can say that would make her feel better. Just be there to offer your love and support :(
That sucks.

If my mom ever said I absolutely HAD to get an abortion, I still wouldn't do it. She CANNOT force her. I understand in some situations though they would either kick them out if not or what ever the case may be. It sucks but I'm not really sure there's any way at all to comfort her, Idt I'd ever be the same :/ poor girl! I'm so sorry.

Just comfort her. Let her talk about it, cry about it, scream about it & know you're there for her. Nothing will really help her get over it. Unwanted abortions are scarring.

Can she seek post abortion counseling from the center she had her abortion? Time will heal things for her, but it may never heal her relationship with your mom.

Just be there to support her. That's terrible that your mother 'forced' her to do something against her will. In all reality, you can't force anyone to do anything..
