This post reminds me of that other teen post with the 19yr old with two kids, wait tils she's like 20 weeks or something to find out she's having twins because she was in denial.. No common sense. It's heartbreaking really.

It's still beating.
Either way, no need in discussing further. I personally feel life starts at conception. I understand other feel differently and would never try and change any ones decision or choice.



But telling someone to abort when they do not want to or place their baby when they do not want to is not right either. She is already a mother, obviously she knows what it takes. Yes it will be difficult but trying to get her to do something she doesn't want to do is pointless.

So, if she were to consider adoption or abortion she wouldn't be stepping up? As far as I am concerned, any woman who takes the time to carefully weigh out her options and choose what best fits the situation is stepping up. Oh and her "age" went out the window when she became a mother and then repeated the action a few short years later while still in the same situation.

it was stated that she had options. no one's holding a gun to her head. would it be the smartest idea? yes. is it our decision? no. & we all know that.

The reason was for support and advise.
Most young mothers are frowned apon and get alot of hate.

i agree, if we were to tell someone on here that was wanting to abort.. that they should keep their child we'd get jumped all over for being insensitive c**ts. but when its the other way around.. its all of a sudden okay to tell someone their making the wrong decision by deciding not to abort or adopt?

Well, she clearly stated she is keeping the child, so people shouldnt be trying to shove abortion or adoption on her. And trust me, age may go out the window but at least she is taking care of he children. I know people who have kids and keep them and pawn them off on others just so they can draw welfare.

I will look more into adoption and if after all the research i do and if I feel it would be best then maybe I might.

And a beating heart is a symbolism for life how? Plants are alive and they don't have a heart. That's silly reasoning.



But you know what? Whatever. Support this girl's decision to have a fourth child at 17. That baby will be the one suffering.

Again, good luck! I'm 20 with one kid. It's scary to me, to think of having four at 18. You must be a patient person with tons of support, I'm sure. Stay strong for your kiddos. :)

no one here knows your life like you do, if you and your fiance feel like you can take care of your children then do what you do.

How old are you? You seem to have no common sense whatsoever.

:!:
It's not right to tell someone the best option for her is to abort,when she doesn't even believe in it to begin with



Good luck OP and congratulations on your pregnancy
