I think her body is hers and hers alone
One that troubles me is (and of course there are thousands of circumstances), Are girls getting pregnant to audition for MTV's 'Teen Mom'?
WB's circumstance was too 'nice',
Lets say a teen gets pregnant for the audition for MTV's Reality-TV show, for fame and the $60,000.
She doesn't get the part and then decides to have an abortion,
Of course I am not suggesting that she be forced to have the baby out of revenge for her stupidity.
It's really messed up and this "glamour factor" and pure unadulterated vanity is pushing it too far for me.
MTV should really get the law suit kicked out of them for their irresponsibility because they are the adults and should know better.
I bring this up because I was thinking of the age thing and these days people seem to mature much later (not 100% but it appears that way).
but dont expect a definitive answer anytime soon
Well this to me is the crux of the whole thread.
Different people believe that human personhood begins at different times, some as early as sperm, some as late as after the baby comes out but it's the grey middle that is the interesting problematic questionable part.
I assume most of us would agree that it doesn't happen as early as sperm or as late as actually being born.
We're on thin ice.
the guy should have a choice as to whether or not he wants to take care of the baby if he can't decide either for or against having the baby
So the biological mother should have to have a baby she doesn't want on the request of the father?
It should of course be discussed but jezz, that could be open to all sorts of interpretation, forcing the mother to have a baby.
So talking at school doesn't really help. You don't know what you're dealing with until you face the real situation.
Fair point but at least it would be in people's minds rather than the fire and brimstone outlook I got at school.
