He came in the Sunday school room the day of my baby shower, after having not spoken to me the whole time, and ask "Is everything under control for your bridal shower? I mean BABY shower?" I almost cried. Then ALL of my "friends" refused to speak to me until one Sunday a good family friend overheard one of them and prompotly anounced to the entire youth group that they could keep their giggles to themselves because the only difference in what I had done and them was the world could see my sins, but not to worry because most of their mothers were complaining about theirs. Jaws dropped because everyone in the group knew she knew they had had sex too. My grandmother, who is a Christian, told my mom I should have an abortion.

I don't think being a teen mom should be made easy though. I don't think people should treat you like it is okay. I think it is okay to let these girls know they have disappointed their parents, their friends, their siblings. Teen's having babies doesn't usually turn out well and at no point should it just be accepted. There is however a better way to address these mothers than with hatefulness.

I don't know what point she was trying to prove either. How teen moms get treated? I guess that can be two sided harshly. On one side it could discourage kids from getting pregnant. On another it could encourge abortion. Don't know what she is hoping to prove but I hope it is not accepting pregnant teens with open arms.
Sounds awful!! I commend you for taking the higher road instead of the easy way out and having an abortion.... I am glad I am not the only teen mom here..
