You're looking for disrespect where none was intended. I said "it" instead of assigning a gender as gender is irrelevant to the discussion.<quoted text> To it? Wow, such disrespect.
I respectfully disagree with you on that. Many young girls do keep and raise their child.<quoted text>
Nowadays not too many young girls would try to raise the BABY.
That's great.<quoted text>
Crisis pregnancy centers would help the girl with material things and a counselor . I am sure that there is a counselor for the girl and parents.
You just contradicted yourself. If the grandparents adopt the child, it's still considered adoption.<quoted text>Around here a young girl decides not to abort and not to have her child adopt, the grandparents help out, so much they end up adopting the baby.
In an earlier post, you feel abortion is selfish and now you feel it's selfish for a young girl to keep and raise her child instead of giving it up for adoption. May I ask in what situation do you feel it's *not* selfish for a girl/woman to keep and raise her child?<quoted text>
It is selfish for her to think she can raise a child in todays world and end up giving the baby to the grandparents, most young girls would opt for adoption.
Abstinence is great but not realistic. Teens are going to have sex whether or not their parents approve. I would rather teens know about safer sex practices so that if they decide to go ahead and have sex, despite their parents objections, at least they know how to protect themselves in order to reduce the risks of STD's and pregnancy. Keeping them ignorant of such practices does *not* stop them from having sex, they just have unprotected sex and put themselves at risk for STD's and pregnancy.<quoted text>
This is a reason for abstinence . Parents need to teach that pre marital sex is wrong.
