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.

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.

she doesn't have to get an abortion though, my cousin was 13 when she got pregnant and kept the baby and her daughter is 26, graduated college, and is making six figures today. With the right support, the baby will be just fine, but people like you just go "too young, throw the baby away"

I would rather see the child born and given the chance to live either as an adopted child or with his or her grandparents. Abortion is murder!

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!

And she's therefore old enough to learn what an abortion is and that it is a viable, legal option and should she choose it she will be supported and loved and not called a murderer by ignorant people.

Not to mention the toll on a girl's body that young. And the risks. Shit, the kid hasn't even been a teen a full year yet! I'd be concerned about HER risk of death.

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.

You shouldn't be on birth control WHILE pregnant!

It's not fool proof and most of the time the IUD causes an atopic pregnancy in the Fallopian tubes.

Actually, that's been largely disproved, though it used to be the common belief.

While it's more common for a pregnancy that happens with an IUD in place to be ectopic than a regular pregnancy being that way, the amount of risk increase is extremely small.

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.

Trust me, in Australia it IS statutory rape at that age until age 16 I believe. There is a close-in-age exemption however. Whoever the father is, OP can still get the police involved.

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.

On what planet do you live on that you can just go around borrowing babies from people?! Like someone is just going to hand over their baby to a pregnant 13 year old to look after for a week!
