I was just advised yesterday that my seventeen year old daughter is pregnant and wants an abortion. She has one more year of high school and will be 18 in January 2013. Morally, I do not want her to do this, but she does not want the child (my grand baby). This is the worst day of my life. As a mother, you try to protect her from all the painful things in life, but this is not something you just take care of for her like a lost/broke cell phone. And on top of all of this, I lost my job 11/2012 and have not found a new job. My thoughts, as a mother are to say, " you made your bed" but that is not how this should be handled. By law, in California, she does not need my permission to go through this, but needs my money. Any help with this would be so appreciated. My thoughts are to see if I can talk her into having the baby and taking care of it ourselves. By the way, she has not told her father either, but we have always had an open communication that she could come to me with anything.
