11 year old having to come to terms with being pregnant, and an 11 year old having to come to terms with the trauma of abortion?
I understand where you are coming from, but this could have been avoided in the first place with decent and caring parents.
i know but the fact is this hasn't been avoided and she is pregnant. surely this is an illegal pregnancy as they were both underage, under the
influence of alcohol, again illegal at their age, and well we can only guess perhaps what other drugs they had. but we know they did two illegal
things... why do we have laws against this stuff, if nothing is done when they are broken?
one, she should be made to have an abortion. an 11 year old should not be having a baby, let alone sex.
two, why is there a law saying you can't drink if you're under 18, then if 15 and 11 years olds drink...nothing is done. what's the point in that
something just needs to be in place to protect these laws. she smokes 20 cigarettes a day...again illegal. she has underage sex, drinks underage, and
smokes underage...something in the law needs to be changed so it can affect her. i'm not sure what, but like i said what's the point in these laws
if nothing can be done. she's 11 for christs sake.
i mean we spend more time at school than we do at home as children, schools need to take responsibility and understand that they are just as much
bringing up us as our parents are. a mix of moral decay, poor parenting and poor sex education has led to this. get better sex education in school,
and starting teaching younger children, and somehow teach parents how to be parents, and that's 2 out of 3...it's a good start.
