16. Jane, 16 years old is 3 months pregnant. Her boyfriend left when he learned her condition. Jane was so depressed that even her personal hygiene was already neglected. As days passed by, the condition worsen. The family who support Jane decided to have the baby be terminated so as not to aggravate her condition.
Reaction: based on Jane’s condition, her family doesn’t have to do an abortion just to help her recover. If they think it will help to stop aggravate her condition, it’s not right to do that, we know that abortion is a crime against God and its illegal, and we don’t know if Jane can really recover in that way. Maybe it will cause her more worsen. She had to continue her pregnancy and her family need to support her more to help her to recover from depression. And also she must attend a psychological therapy if necessary.
