Being pro-young mothers

Back when I was in (public) high school, we had an interesting assignment for health class: We had to ask our parents, "What if I got pregnant?"

After laughing and saying that that would take a boy, my mom said that she and my dad would love and support both me and a child. Even though I was far from dating, I was comforted to hear this. Even though she was pro-choice politically, that didn't mean she would encourage her daughter to have an abortion.
