Absolutely. You push your child to have an abortion and she will resent you for a lifetime. I am curious as to why you have not been discussing safe sex and good choices every day! Now that she is pregnant, support her and celebrate the arrival of your grandbaby

Yes. My mother dealt with a similar situation. My sister was much younger than your daughter and was obviously not aware of the situation she was in - my mother did. She does not believe in abortions, however, considering my sister's age she wanted what was best for the both of them (sister and baby). I don't believe you should ever push abortion on anyone especially your daughter - that may just push her away from you. You don't want that. Maybe try talking with her and seeing where her mind is ... it is her decision and you are either going to support her in whatever decision she makes or you're going to push her away. I wish your family the best!

Yes, it is wrong of you to push HER towards abortion. This is not your body, this is not your baby that you're speaking of killing, and this is not your decision. If you cannot be supportive of your daughter, letting her know what ALL of her options are, and being supportive of whichever decision SHE makes for her life, then bow out gracefully now.

What she chooses to do with the baby is her choice. As a parent, you should discuss all of her options with her openly without pushing her one way or the other and allow her to make that choice. If you pressure her to have an abortion, and she ends up having one to avoid your disapproval, she may hold that against you for the rest of her life, particularly if this is not something that sits well with her. This is a situation where you don't get to have control of the outcome.
