I think it was wrong for her to get pregnate at age 16 without being married I mean how could she take care of the babe so young.But I do not agree that she should have abortion that is MURDER.She just shouldnt do that next time.

Getting pregnant at 16 may be difficult, but I wouldn't say it was "wrong."

It's a cultural/religious thing.

There's nothing inherently "wrong" about getting pregnant at an early age, but our cultural/religious beliefs are repelled by the idea--and for good reason. In our culture, "the village" isn't that helpful in caring for newborns, so young moms have little willing aid. Totally sucks, but that's the reality.

But getting pregnant at 16 is NOT "wrong."
