I see what you're saying and while it's true, I can answer in two ways
1. The mother can leave a message, explaining her reasons. Maybe a letter, that the kid will be given at an apropriate age
2. I'm not in their shoes, but I don't see why they should feel bad for something that was not in their control in any way. If they are lucky enough to find a real family that takes care of them, it's even kind of unfair. But I guess you can't tell your feelings what to do.

Yeah I agree with 1 completely. I decided when I was in high school that if I got pregnant before I was able to raise a child I'd have them be adopted and write a letter for the parents to decide when to give to the kid. But not everyone does that or thinks of it.
And It's easy to say that it's not within your control, no need to be upset, but I know enough people who were adopted or had parents skip town to know that it's easier said than done. There's something in people's guts that says, "My parents are biologically designed to want to take care of me. What's wrong with me that they didn't want me anyway?" Logically, they know they are not at fault. But deep down, that feeling exists a lot of the time.

I would have set up the adoption Juno-style. For a couple reasons.
1. I'm arrogant. I think I have good genes and would like to contribute more of them to the world.
2. There are plenty of people who want/need to adopt, but want a "from scratch" baby that they can raise from the beginning. I'd have been able to offer that.
3. Abortions can increase your risk of not being able to get pregnant/carry to term later on in life.
Now, had I actually gotten pregnant in high school, I may have felt differently. I'm speaking objectively here, which will always be flawed when compared to real-world behaviors.

you leave me with almost no answer to that and this is rare
but I need to say that I disagree with that. I had this argument with my gf (thank god we still haven't gotten in this situation) and her major reason is the danger of not being able to get pregnant afterwards.
About the first and the second - there are enough people with good genes and the resolve to do this without you. Pretty sure that by giving birth to this child, even if you manage to find him a home, you are depriving another kid from one. There are people that will not get an abortion because of religion, lack of money or good clinics around them etc.
And about the third big argument - if you live in a country that is even barely in the first world and you have fine medical care around you, there should be no problem with the abortion. The technologies are good enough to do it with almost no danger.
And if you still want to contribute your fine genetic material, give them for stem cells research
how is that for "having almost no answer"
#687 - psychlogic (08/14/2013) [-]
Haha all very good points.
Again, the genes thing was just my arrogance that my genes are somehow superior. Maybe it's the instinctual desire to reproduce (another argument, I'm sure, but for another time). In any case, you are right in that there are babies whose parents give 0% consideration to or cannot have an abortion that also need homes.
But there are dangers associated with abortions. While life-threatening issues are extremely rare, there is the concern of scarring, which can cause a lot of problems later on. The majority of people who have abortions will not have significant issues. But there are plenty of women whose scarring makes it very difficult to get pregnant, or prevents it altogether.
Another problem a lot of women have is psychological. While LOGICALLY, it is better to abort a fetus that you cannot or don't want to take of than bring them into the world unloved or unprovided for, many women struggle with their decision emotionally.
Maybe I'll donate some eggs.

Anybody can be a parent. It takes a special type of person to be a "Mother/Father". A "mother" is the person you will always look up to. Biological or not, your "mother" will always be your "mother". I'm also not saying everybody has a "mother"--which is a shame. And yes completely true, it happened a few hours ago

~80mph at ~60mph limit... roughly
It wasn't dangerous, but the penalty for it is pretty costly + 6 months without driving licence, which would be horrible for me, I'm using my car very often (I live in a kind of a big city and I can't get to a proper store even without the car)
