After reading all of the reviews below mine id just like to say that all of you who think abortion is bad or that if uyou get raped it is your fault, you should just fu*k off. My girlfriend was raped when she was with her friends ( she was 13 ) and since she was pressured by her friends and parents not to get an abortion ( those stupid christian as$holes blamed me ) she died in child birth along with the baby. After that her best friend commited suicide when she got pregnant too. So all of you fu*k off and mind your own buisness. I lost my girlfriend and a good friend because of your stupid religious beleifs.

Abortion should never be an option! But teens shouldnt give the oppurtunity to be pregnrt watsover. If your thinking of abortion imagine that baby who chose you to be it's mother up in heaven and it's smiling down at you from heaven anticipating you giving it a smile and holding it close to your warm heart and then it decided it made the wrong choice for it's mother because you won't even let it live. Carrying a child is a blessing and some people wont except that gift My aunt and uncle have been trying to have a baby and they succeeded bcuz thats what happens when you have unprotected sex you get try to have a baby and will get pregnent eventually. If you took the time to read this and agree plese post gift from god I literally have tears rolling down my cheeks

First: pregnancy at any time is one of the most painfull and traumatic experiences out there. Nuff said. Second: if a girl under the age of eighteen aand under the weight of 140 or so pounds gets pregnant by rape or sex she can die during childbirth. Third: people who say that if someone cant take care of the baby that they can just choose adoption but pregnancy, having a baby, and going through adoption all cost money genuises. Ps im a catholic and whoever said that rape is the raped persons fault is either mentally retarded or deserves to be.

Ok. I am a 15-year-old mom. My boyfriend just had to bring me into having sex. And like 7 weeks later when I find out I was prego my bf leaves me. I think my baby is the cutest thing ever but I am like broke and I have to do 2 jobs. Babysitting and gardening. It is horrible. My parents have to watch my baby while I am working my @$$ off. They said I had to pay them for watching my baby. What kind of parents do that? Abortion is an option people. I am a Lutheran.

Some people say that Christians are stupid because they think abortion is'nt an option, but sorry that killing is a sin. And i understand that you still have a whole life ahead of you, but cant you just give the baby to a aunt or uncle or somthing? There acually is no reason that a baby has to die as long as you have a aunt or an uncle or even a friend. You migt say again that adoption centers have too many children there, but isnt that better then killing the baby? Im just stating the truth of my opinion. Thanks for reading, -Liz

All you a$$holes need to stop. Adoption is not the answer.there are already too many babys and people in orphanages. Also abortio should be an optio for kids and assult victims. People saying that rape is the victims fault are crazy. No its not. If they wanted to be raped then they would stand around yelling rape me. Abortion should be the answer because if you are too young you can die from childbirth do you want somwone to die just to bring that on baby into the world? No? Then please shut u and keep your freaking oppinions inside ypur church. We dont want to hear your oppinions about how we should live OUR lives. Now please shut up and stop being evil to everyone.

Abortion is just as much of an option as adoption is. Some people cannot physically and psychologically handle giving birth to a baby. Instead of going off on a tangent about how bad and stupid abortion is, open your mind first and actually consider all of the possible circumstances that a woman can actually go through. Either way, it all boils down to one thing: mind your own business and stay out of other people's lives. If it's not directly pertaining to you, your opinion and decision does not matter.

Killing innocent babies is so so wrong. Adoption is the best option if you dont want to keep the child but abortion should never b the option . Never

Listen to be honest I haven't actually tead the book but as I was looking at the reviews I was more than and moved by the situation and I am so sorry that you had to go through that whoever wrote that last review. But here's my opinion on abortion, I understand if you were not ready to have a baby or in some cases have sex. But however though there are more ways and choices but if abortion is the choice you made then people should not judge you especially if you are as young as 13. Because I'm pretty sure that no sane or stable person would want to abort there baby. Because abortion could also sometimes ruin other chances of having a baby when you actually ready and really want to. So, to make a long story short if you really need to then abortion is the right choice for some people. Including that girl in the last review. I respect your descision and once again I am so sorry that you had to go through that.

I think that Abortion is wrong and should only be done if ether the mother or the baby is going to die. And also of corse if someone gets raped its not their falt. Why would people think that?

Im a christian and i say that its not ur fault. It wasnt her friends or her parents fault it was the fault of the guy who raiped her. So calm down and take a deep breath and look up on ur nook the bible. Then look up in there John 3:16 or Genisis 1:1- the end of the chapter. Also plz stop calling christians idiots. THAT is just plain mean. Thx for reading this and i hope u take my advice!! Bye and good luck!!
