    what sort of parents would throw out/disown their child who is of legal age simply for getting pregnant?

    I'm having a hard time believing this
    Plenty of parents would do this. Lots of parents throw their kids out for much less.

    Yea if you don't masturbate your body will eject semen. It's called "wet dreams". But anyways I agree that we must draw a line that is somehow arbitrary as to in which point does life begin but I really don't think that line should be drawn as in when the baby leaves the womb. I believe life begins at the point of conception and that is line I believe. You can go even further than wearing condoms. I told you that is a practical impossibility and is very different from the point in which there is a human embyro with heartbeat, brain waves and organs at around 3 months. And I belive abortions are allowed here for the first 24 weeks.
    I'm not saying we should go around and spread our DNA everywhere and have as many children as possible, I am saying we should respect the sanctity of human life as a moral principle and not destroy life under ANY conditions, from chemical warfare to abortion and ethunasia. Only when we respect the sanctity of human life can we feel responsibility for human lives not only in our country but all around the world.
    Wet dreams don't occur because of lack of masturbation. They occur when you are dreaming about something sexually explicit in your sleep. It can happen to anyone, including a guy with a very active sex life.

    Yes yes, you're pro life, congrats.

    My parents would throw me out if they found out and I'd have to stay with a friend for a while before I moved out officially and that itself would require me to take a break from my current placement. And what I'm doing now, its a 5 days a week thing and I cannot simply just take my baby to work. IMO I would not be able to continue what I want to do without having a really long pause or resulting to just quitting and working a retail job. I want to be in a place where I can have a baby without it making me homeless, disowned from my family, financially unstable and having a disrupted education/career path. Once I get that bit sorted then yes having a baby would be a right time even if its not the "right time".

    Also thank you for answering my questions
    The biggest piece of advice I can give you? Wait for your six week scan.

    You wouldn't buy a house without going to view it.

    You wouldn't apply for a job without reading through the job description.

    You wouldn't marry someone you'd never met before.

    Go for the scan (well it's likely you'll have to anyway to officially date your pregnancy, but six weeks is when you can actually see something), and realise what you're giving up. If you still want the abortion, go for it. If you look at the scan and think 'that's my baby. I'll make it work in spite of the circumstances, because that's my baby', then you know your answer :-)

    Yeah I mean the women in the same situation in Islamic countries would be killed before they even made it to the clinic. If they existed. But I hear stoning is equally as effective.

    Stoning is NOT an Islamic concept. It is more of a innovated biblical concept.

    No the point is you missed the context in everything I said in my previous reply.
    I've also noticed you are very selective about what you choose to reply to.

    You're welcome :hugs:

    No I didn't regret, even right after it happened. I was angry at myself for getting into that situation even though I was on the pill but that was about it. Tbh, I felt nothing but relief after it was done.

    Yip if you're up to nine weeks, you'll get the pill abortion. You go to the clinic one day for one tablet and then you go back two days later for four more tablets and then the actual abortion takes place.

    How did you get pregnant on the pill if you don't mind me asking? Were you taking it perfectly? Did you get symptoms of pregnancy as I've heard when you fall pregnant on the pill it can be concealed as the periods you get are 'fake', and on the mini pill some don't get periods at all (I don't).

    I was taking it perfectly on time every day. Just before I found out I pregnant, I had just recovered from pneumonia a few weeks before and maybe the pill interacted with the medication I was taking for pneumonia or maybe I was just unlucky as you can take the pill perfectly and still get pregnant.

    Tbh, I didn't notice any changes in me but my partner noticed I was eating more and I was more moody but I put down the increase in appetite to me finally getting over pneumonia but when I noticed my period was late by over a week, that is when I decided to do the test. It wasn't until after I found out I was pregnant that I noticed symptoms like nausea, especially when I smelled things and little other things here and there. I didn't have any kind of bleeding or spotting at all.
