I am a member of an online community that consists of mostly very conservative women. Not that I'm that conservative myself.But we did share in some like minded things. A recent poster made a mention about how some 16 year old she knows lost her baby at 34 weeks gestation. I felt bad for the girl suffering the situation. I really did. But not one person commenting on this person's post made one mention about it being a 16 year old in the first place!!!! I gave my condolences and then went on to comment about how no 16 year old needs to be getting pregnant and I also said that it was somewhat a "blessing in disguise." I know...not very tactful. I became pregnant when I was 17 and delivered him when I was 18. I was sure as heck not ready! I was still in party mode and didn't even learn about my self until I was in my mid-20's. I have yet to go back to that site to see how how many people totally flamed me. I'm sure I got slammed pretty bad. The one time I went back to the site (quickly) was to receive a message from an individual informing me that she got pregnant at 16 and it was her personal choice. OK. That's all fine and dandy especially if it was a religious thing or what have you. My thinking is...what freakin' family thinks it's cool and perfectly fine to allow their 16 year old daughter to get knocked up?! I've got a daughter and would totally freak if she got pregnant at such a young age! Who, exactly, would be taking care of that baby? Me and my husband, of course! She would have to continue through school, etc. and get a job. I love this site I visit and I have been fretting over my post for the last two days. I'm sorry, but I refuse to apologize for my comments because those were my personal thoughts on the subject. I hate sites where the only acceptable comments are those which are mainstream.
