I hope you followed this up with showing her how responsible it is to get an abortion and use proper birth control. Before anyone jumps on me - no one wants a 13 year old having a baby.

I cannot be silent. If you are old enough to play, you are old enough to pay. Said another other way... if you are mature enough to have sex then you should be responsible enough to handle what comes of it. If she can’t take care of the child then she should put him/her up for adoption. Killing the baby should not be any more an option than killing her! Please research this hideous practice. Shalom!
Buddy, if a tween has a baby, the risks include permanent mutilation and death. It's not 'baby killing' so much as 'if the tween lands in a wheelchair, she may end up dying in the street because the US is ******, AND the baby probably won't survive anyway because she's not biologically capable of carrying to term'. Abortions come into play when you can only save one life. In most cases, that's the mother. Calling it baby killing and crying about it just ends with two deaths instead of one, now or later.
A child is not equipped to provide the emotional and functional care needed for the healthy development of children. When you make the decision to bring another person into the world, it's 100% your responsibility- when a child is "supported" in raising another child it means that adults end up taking over the responsibilities and obligations that the child parent isn't capable of. An incapable parent is psychologically damaging and detrimental to the development of children. This situation would be damaging to the 13 year old too- just look at what happens to parentified children.
take her to the doctor, and put her on birth control. babies having babies. sick. and while you're at it send her to therapy bc if she jumps to pregnancy to prove she's responsible, something is going on.
You do realize that if she’s pregnant it’s a little too late for birth control right?
Make her get an IUD. She won’t be able to get pregnant for 5 years even if she really wanted to again.
How como no one is talking about how that's probably statutory rape? Though I'm not sure how that works in Australia... Who's the father anyway? So many questions!
Statutory rape is between an adult and a younger person so unless you're ASSuming the father is an adult, I'm not sure where you're getting statutory rape from.
I don't even know what to say here. She's off to a bad start and anything you do is going to be wrong. Find a friend with a baby and let her babysit for a week. Don't help with anything at all (unless the child's safety depends on it). Point out to her everything she's forgetting to do. At the end of the week, ask if she's ready for an abortion. If not, let your friend have their baby back for a week and then borrow the baby again.
