Children should not be having children. The #1 person who suffers is the unwanted child. Being forced to have a child to "accept the consequences" of sex is just terrible. Let's not forget the number of young women and girls who have gotten pregnant due to abuse/assault is higher than people would like to admit. Some adult women aren't emotionally capable of loving a child who is the product of rape and you expect a teen to do better? Then there are the children of addicts who end up in the foster care system who are born with troubles that lead to them being rarely adopted into loving forever homes. Abortion is mercy.
