I m 15 years old and I was drugged at a party and raped by my exboyfriend. Unfortunately, I got pregnant from the rape as well. So many people have told me it would be okay in my situation to have an abortion, but I am confused as to why it is any different. Whether I chose to have to sex or not, that innocent little baby didn t do anything wrong and shouldn t be punished for something it had no control over. So many people think I m crazy for keeping this child, but I can t even think about having an abortion. It s just not right! That kid deserves a chance at life and it would be so selfish of me to not give 9 months of my life up to give the child an opportunity to live and grow. I m not sure whether or not I ll be giving him/her up for adoption because it is my child. It s a part of me and it deserves to be with it s real mom. I am financially stable enough to take care of it and I always wanted kids, not this early, but we learn to make due with what we get. Anyways that whole part was kind of pointless, but my question is why do people think abortion is alright, it s like murder! It s not humane. Also, if someone kills a pregnant women they are charged with two counts of murder, so by law isn t abortion actually murder? I m not trying to make everyone agree with me, i m actually trying to hear the other side of the story because even some people in my family would like me to get an abortion and I would like to try to understand why but they won t tell me! And now I feel really awkward around them cause I don t feel like they care about an innocent baby! Wow cancerleoblend, that was extremely rude. I am ready to take care of a child. I absolutely love children and I would rather babysit than hang out with my friends! I m not on welfare, I get paid $14 an hour and I will stay in school as long as I can and will take online courses while I can t be in school. My two little sisters have a nanny that will also take care of my baby during school hours for a slight cost and my parents are willing to help out for anything I can t provide. I am beyond ready to provide love, attention, and time! You can t tell my maturity level through a few paragraphs.
