    Having not seen the show do they showcase preteens ever? Or incest or rape babies? You are comparing apples and oranges.

    does the mother in you truly have no compassion or concern for the fact that this child is ELEVEN, Gloria?

    No, never either one. And if they did it would be really disturbing. I agree, apples and oranges.

    Absolutely. And I can tell you that I was mature enough at 11 to understand if someone forced me to kill my own baby and it would have devastated me. I loved kids and babysat my baby nephews from the time I was 10 years old.

    So because you liked babysitting and presumably had never been raped for years you know how she should feel. Okay.

    I was actually going to ask this question myself, as I didn't personally read that into anyone's responses. I think, as Kim indicated, everyone just feels like this should all be handled differently. Even the strong pro-lifer in me feels the same way. The whole situation is sad and it just doesn't seem right for them to use her as an example...not to mention the whole scary thought of how her life (and the life of that baby) will turn out after all of this. We have to see the WHOLE picture and be concerned for all of the innocent lives involved, not just the unborn one. At least that's my take.

    She stated she wants to keep her baby. So how would an abortion be anything but forced?

    She probably knows of no other option besides adoption.

    I don't think anyone is advocating forced abortion. Government forced abortion is just as gross as government forced pregnancy.

    No I know how she feels because she stated on TV that she wanted to keep her baby, and I think an 11 year old can be mature enough to understand the difference between giving birth to a baby and an abortion.

    Thats the thing that gets me in this situation. Whats the point of praising her for saying she wants to keep the baby if she isn't even necessarily capable of doing so? To praise her at the point for the mere desire to keep the baby is a bit jumping the gun...it may turn out to actually be a very immature and naive thing to have said....or a coerced thing.
