    depends. you should have actually heard what it is that she wanted to do before you said anything. if you did hear her out and she asked for your opinion anyway, you should have maybe also gone into detail as to WHY you believe she should have an abortion: you are too young, you are still in High School, you will have a hard time getting into college right away because baby will be priority one, the baby will not have a father figure, etc. if you presented her with reasons WHY she should try and think about abortion, then maybe she would not have reacted that way. but who knows.. maybe you did all that and she still went hay-wire. Obviously she does not believe in abortion and she feels the best thing for her is to have the baby. just be a supportive friend, no matter what she decides..

    no, you're a *****. You shouldn't tell a friend to get an abortion. You should support her decision with something like this, but abortion is a serious issue that will haunt her for the rest of her life. She's young, but my best friend is 24 and has an 8 year old daughter and is greatful every day that she has her. It's your friends decision. If she WANTS to abort, you should support her decision and be there for her, but don't abandon her if she wants the baby.

    It really depends on her situation. I wouldn't call it being a ***** at all. She was probably upset, because not many people agree with the idea of abortion. It is understandable to see where you were coming from though. She should do what's right, and if she asked for help, she should accept your advice, but that doesn't mean she has to listen.

    If she is still in school, not able to care/support a child and is not able to coordinate being a responsible parent - then no. If she is able to do the previously mentioned, then yes.

    Being a parent is much more difficult than a young immature person can understand.

    It is a life long commitment. There is no turning back. That is why there is so much news about young parents doing bad things to their kids. They take out their anger on the child.

    It is a very serious decision to become a parent...especially if the birth was not planned.

    No, you weren't right to encourage her to kill her unborn baby. You and your friend should both take a look at:

    That's not your place to tell her what to do.. This is a child's life.. and I do not believe in abortion.. she made the mistake of doing what she did and getting pregnant so she needs to take responsibility for her actions.. But it still wasn't your place to say anything to that extent

    You have a right to your opinion.....she has a right to hers. If you want to be "right" you will find that it's just opinion that will make you so. If you care for your friend....quit worrying about being right and see how you can support her in her time of crisis. You may need her support someday.

    You probably are for telling her, but it was absolutely the right advice. Sometimes you have to make people dislike you to get them to accept the truth.

    you would have been right to suggest she consider it as an alternative to becomming another 17 yr old single mother. You were not necessarily right to TELL her to have one.

    Yeah that is young but if she doesn't want it then she can give it up for adoption then it can still LIVE! Don't go telling your friend to do stupid things like that!
