    Cant even answer this one. My 11 year old is at Middle school church camp and this thread kind of makes me want to drive up there and hug her and make sure she took her blanky with her

    Well my six year old said he was superman. And he's frighteningly close to her age. You are giving an 11 year old way way too much responsibility- she is a scared, abused and probably emotionally scarred in all sorts of ways little child.

    And ugh- do you have NO issue with this child and victim being ON TV? Who is there protecting her best interests? She's being used as a pawn. An abused, pregnant pawn.

    I can only go by what I understood as an 11 year old myself. I'm sure she is scared, but I think killing her baby would scar her for life and be a lot more emotional trauma than having the baby, especially given the fact that she is in a country where abortion is a lot more rare. They did not show her face on TV, and I'm sure the media is just as bad as they are here about going after a story. It is sad but it is not only one side that is using her as a pawn, the pro-abortion side is using her as a pawn just as much if not more, to try and legalize abortion in Chile. That is why it made world news because pro-abortion activists want everyone to use this girl to put pressure on Chile to legalize abortion.

    A six year old has the same maturity as an 11 year old? That is stretching it a little.

    Although not responding, I did read the whole debate and did get the impression that the debate was about abortion vs. giving birth not about adoption vs. giving birth and keeping the baby.

    That's just your own bias. I have many friends who have had abortikns and ALL of them are grateful. They were too young, wrong guy - abusive relationship etc. I get that you are conditioned to believe that people are like emotionally ruined forever from abortion- it simply isn't the case. I have many, many, educated, well off friends who are happily married with children who would have their entire lives derailed by becoming mothers and having to drop out of college etc. for people with a bigger picture life - well- this whole abortion ruins you is just a lie told by the small, fear lingering religious right

    That was a list of options. Maybe read the whole debate.

    Did they live in a country where the majority of people are Catholic and abortion is illegal because most people want it that way and believe it is wrong? Were they Catholic themselves like this girl most likely is and believe that abortion is taking a life? Just because it didn't affect your friend's lives doesn't mean they can speak for everyone else. I have heard many stories from women who WERE haunted for the rest of their life. I was listening to the radio just a few days ago when they were talking about the abortion bill they just passed in Texas and a woman called in and told how she had an abortion 20 years ago and it still affects her enough that she was crying on the phone. I think as medical science allows people to see that these babies are not just a mass of tissue more people become pro-life for reasons other than religion.

    My hearts breaks for this poor child. I can't imagine any girl at that age mature enough to make such a decision. She can't possibly understand all that this will entail for her. I think it's horrid that she is now some sort of poster child for making the "right decision".
    She's obviously not had the best parental guidance and now who's looking out for her best interests? Her 11 year old self? Aside from the basics of exactly how an 11 year old will provide for her child, what sort of future is this going to be for her? She will carry this publicly for the rest of her life.
