|apparently the hospital no longer has an adolescent psych ward. I don't know when that changed. But she has a psych. Appointment tomorrow morning. Babyrae, my mom won't sign the consent form because she is religiously against it. She can be excommunicated from our church, just for signing the form. My sister will have plenty of time to get an abortion once she turns 18, if she still chooses so. She doesn't need to flip out now. She's just afraid that the longer she's pregnant, the more time there is for someone to figure it out. She doesn't want people to know because she's afraid they'll judge her. But when they find out that she had an abortion, they'll be even more harsh. I just can't get her to listen to me when I tell her that.|
|your mother has a reason to not sign the consent form, and your sister has a reason for wanting it signed, but I feel that if your sister is flipping out over not being able to obtain this abortion and is already thinking about suicide, then I dont think that she should have the abortion. Because after abortions a period of deppression sets in and your sister maybe willling to take her life again, she already thought about it. But this time she might be able to carry it through because no one would take her serious considering she wanted to commit suicide when she couldnt have an abortion, and now that she got one no one would think she'd want to take her life considering she go what it was that she wanted. I think your mom should have her checked out and hopefully she will change her mind about her unborn child.|
|i would've probably agreed with an uninterested shrug a few months ago. But now that it'!**@! so close to home, it's very different. She wouldn't have to keep the baby, but I would rather her give it to a family who will love this child as a gift from god, rather than her just kill it for no reason.|
she shouldn't have the abortion, because after abortions women tend to get depression. That's your reasoning? Is that a joke? Do you have kids? You do realize after giving birth, women get this thing called post partum depression?
This is her body, and she's most likely feeling very, very trapped. It's too bad she has to have parent consent, she should be able to make the choice, not someone who isn't carrying the baby.
