First off Greyeagle, I do have a hard time understanding you sometimes, so I will do my best....that was not meant to be a negative...
So let me say one thing up front...I am AGAINST ABORTION...only should it be used in cases of rape, possible death to mother, or baby will be extremely retarded. I AM NOT GOING TO DEBATE WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN. Believe what you want.
At the same time, I DO NOT BELIEVE that Fed Gov, or any Gov has the right to tell you what you can and cannot do with your body. I believe in God, and I believe that we all answer for our past sins. Again, I WILL NOT DEBATE WITH YOU MY BELIEFS.
I find it appalling both by the parents and the children that this EVEN reached the courts. I am shocked at how situation's such as this ARE NOT CONTROLLED through responisble parenting. For this matter to even go to court, this situation reached a fail status already. I concure, this is a parenting failure.
Do I expect the court to force the 16 year old to kill the child? Of course not. Do I expect the court to allow the parents to force the child to have an abortion? Of course not.
What I expect is for the court system to recognize that this a family dispute, A PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY, and to send them home. HOWEVER, if there is phsical abuse by the parents, then yes the courts must get involved.
I also do NOT expect the courts to order the parents to pay for her mobile bill, return the care, and to pay half of medical costs. Although I believe the parents should support their daughter and grandchild by helping with the medical bills/expenses.
Who in the hell mentioned anything about selling the child? Where did that even come into play?
I was taught to admit when I was wrong, take my bruises, and move one. God only knows how many times the sins of my past has come back to haunt me. But I have survived each time.
I believe our children have no concept of consequences. Just do it, and deal with it later. They have to learn....but I do hate to see an innocent life suffer because of two irresponsible teens...
And there is always adoption.....With the information provided it appears the court's position"
Is your argument - that the (Grown Parent's) of the two youth - be allowed by law, to force the young 16 year male and 16 year old female couple, to destroy the gift of the womb of the two -
Because they have authority
and the wisdom to do so.
Because it may add cost - to be a grandparent.
Even though the young couple wish for family, a son or daughter.
What if the young infant could be harvested or sold for profit by the age legal grand parents of the young couple? to re coupe their cost of the car or cell phone or partial medical bill's ??
Maybe "both of the young couple's parent's " The Infant's Grand Parent's " can file a law suit to split the profit's of the child.
The failure of maturity and responsibility is not in the young couple whom wish to raise a child and start a family.
But in the value's of the grand parent's - what did they teach their youth or their children to get into such a position ??
