I agree 100% with what Nintandy has been saying. Sure she has made a mistake, I know it, you know it and ofcourse she knows it. She told us this so that we could give her advice, not say youre a dumbass. It's in the past and us critisizing her isn't going to help the situation at all, is it? Shes 15 and about to have a baby. Say something helpful or don't say anything at all.
That's all well and good, and sure, I'll give her advice, but the thing is, Angelic Symphony's post is merely an example of teenagers in England these days. I don't know if you live here or not but I'll presume you don't for now. The thing is, everyone pretty much says that the damage has been done and so we just have to move past it, but looking upon the statistics and the way England is, maybe this philosophy isn't working. I'll stress what I said before: England has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Western Europe, being twice as high as Germany, three times as high as France and six times as high as the Netherlands, and in particular, 500% higher than Holland. That's bad. To hear of 12- and 13- and 14-year-olds over here having babies is becoming a somewhat common thing to hear. When you think of 12-year-olds, you think of kids playing football/soccer outside, not going around, getting drunk, having sex and producing children when they are merely children themselves.
If we can tackle this issue, and maybe get Angelic Symphony to understand how bad this situation really is, maybe it'll change her decision and do what is best for herself. It's popular culture to do what is morally right; i.e. not have an abortion/be a murderer in harsher words, but sometimes, and I know it may sound cruel, you really have to do what's best for you. Of course there's going to be the argument that the baby didn't ask to be conceived, but sometimes you have to be cruel and look at this from all aspects. It's all good and well saying she'll be homeschooled and whatnot, but by the sounds of it, having a baby that is, and I'm sorry to say, the result of drunken behaviour, a hindrance to her life. I just hope she'll understand that and take that into consideration.
