And even without the 'little doll' comment...to give her such high praise for merely uttering the words that she wants to keep the baby is just ridiculous. You can say lots of things, especially at 11 years old and not understand the gravity of what it is you are actually saying.
Really this whole thing is just sad. I fear for this kid. The people looking after her are a mother who sees nothing wrong with this situation (makes me sick) and some leadership that has taken to making her into a public example. I wish someone could take her far away from that place.
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy this baby is going to be born. I just don't think this child is old enough to raise a child, especially with what a whacked up family she clearly has. I think the child would be much better off with an adoptive family.
I have no idea what the statement being in writing or not matters, you have lost me there. I will say that putting an 11 year old incest victim on TELEVISION is sick in and of itself, asking her to then be the face of some moral or religiously zealot agenda is even worse. Talk about victimizing the victim. Sick.
Carrie ~ I too wonder HOW this kid can keep the kid? Her mother will be in jail as will her step father or whoever that creeper was. So some stranger takes in this child and HER child? I can't even envision how that works.
Again, how is this related? I certainly don't glorify these people, I've never watched one of those shows in my entire life. Don't most people watch them though because of what a MESS they are, not because of how awesome they are? Aren't they like honey boo boo? People don't tune in to her because she is glorified, but because they like to feel superior to the trainwreck that is being taken advantage of.
Are you saying that because we take advantage of 16 year old pregnant girls for TV ratings it is okay and GOOD for this president to take advantage of this 11 year old? Because that is some messed up thinking, right there.
I want her to not be put in the spotlight. I want her to receive appropriate counseling...iI want to take her out of a country that has chosen to put pressure on her to be a model of their ethical and moral vision....an ELEVEN year old...RAPE victim! I want her to have guidance on what to do at this point from someone who has her interests at heart. She has none of that.Quote:
But yet you want her to be forced to abort.
I don't understand why you insist on talking about other people in other situations. I"m trying to debate this girl in this situation.Quote:
Of course she probably doesn't understand what it is really like to have a baby, but if she was 16 and didn't understand what it was really like to have a baby does that automatically mean that she was forced to have it? Because there are many girls that age who have babies that think it is like having a doll too.
