my take is, everyone deserves a chance

"good" parents don't guarantee a stellar life, "bad" parents don't guarantee a destitute life

no matter the start, anyone can grow up to be loving, well rounded, balanced people or the polar opposite

life just isn't that cut and dry

http://www.lipstickalley.com/f50/court-rules-teen-not-mature-enough-abort-mature-enough-mom-581848/

Last Friday, the Nebraska Supreme Court denied a 16-year-old foster child's request to get an abortion without parental consent. The teen, identified only as Anonymous 5, was deemed not mature enough to make the decision herself. So then she's mature enough to raise a child? Okay, sure. Whatever you say, Nebraska.
According to Slate:
The teenager, identified in the court ruling as Anonymous 5, showed evidence of mature reasoning at a confidential hearing. She worried that she didn’t have the financial resources to support a child or to be “the right mom that I would like to be right now.” Yet district judge Peter C. Bataillon, whom the Raw Story reports once served on the committee for an Omaha anti-abortion group, disagreed, and the Supreme Court upheld his ruling in a split vote of 5-2. 
Just to back up a second — Bataillon asked the teen whether she knew that “When you have the abortion, it’s going to kill the child inside of you," before issuing his surely impartial ruling.
The high court ruling was the first involving Nebraska's new parental consent law, which was passed last year and requires girls 17 and under to obtain written, notarized consent of a parent or guardian for an abortion. 
The teen, who was removed from her parents two years ago due to physical abuse and neglect, had nowhere to turn for help. Since her parents lost their parental rights earlier this year — and because, according to the teenager, her foster parents "held strong religious beliefs" — her rights are in the hands of a court in a state that just created a law that requires people 17 and under to obtain written, notarized consent of a parent or guardian for an abortion. 
However, there is this bit of, well, good-ish news:
Catherine Mahern, the attorney representing the girl, said her client went before Douglas County District Judge Peter Bataillon in July. At the time, the girl was 10 weeks pregnant.

Mahern declined to say whether the girl is still pregnant, three months later. “It is not in my client's best interests to comment,” she said. 

She noted there are ways for a minor to bypass parental consent other than through the courts. Among them is going to another state, she said.
Let's all hope the teen was able to get the help she needed in making a decision that affects only her body and her life. 



Court Rules Teen Not Mature Enough to Abort, Mature Enough to Be Mom

Forcing someone to keep a baby they dont want is wrong.  Just cuz YOU want the baby doesnt mean they need to change their whole life.  

Next month we need to vote out all of these republicans. from judges, to senators, to congressmen, mayors, etc.... VOTE  across the board!!!!!!!

She ain't pregnant no more.   Just how....my guess is that she either did it herself the old fashioned way or she banged into things and fell down alot....hard.

Life is so precious. Taking a life is taking a life, that's how I see it.

that was my initial thought but if she got extremely religious parents....how did she get out the house by herself and long enough for her to travel to another state, have the procedure and travel back?  Knowing what she wants her parents wouldn't let her out of sight and be clocking time when school lets out.

The article says that she was a foster child. Her parents were on drugs and physically abusive to her. They did not have custody

if someone is old enough to be forced into parenthood they should be old enough to make the decision ALONE to abort.  that makes no god damn sense.
