Over the past few decades a debate over abortions being legalized has divided America into two separate parties, pro-life and pro-choice.

That’s what most people who end up keeping the child feels like every day. They sometimes hate their children for reminding them of such a painful time.
In situations like teen pregnancies however, the children are sure they could take care of the child, while others know...
