My first reaction would be sadness. I am 25 and feel I'm too young.
But I would support her as much as I could.

I would support her 100% in helping with her pregnancy and raising bubs, but could not support a decision to have an abortion and would be extremely upset and disappointed if she terminated.

It would completely depend on the situation, and her attitude to life in general. If she was in a relationship with a responsible, loving guy and it was a result of a condom breakage or something, of course I would support her and her decisions (although not mooching off welfare, like other PPs have said). If she's going out, partying and sleeping around, I would honestly feel sick with disappointment at her irresposibility. She would be free to choose whatever she wants to do, but the degree of support from me would depend on her actions. If she approaches the issue maturely, and understands that she needs to accept responsibility for the child (assuming she keeps it), I would provide assistance for the right reasons, e.g. putting her up until bub is old enough for her to study or work, babysitting and any required financial support in studying/working. But there would be NO WAY I would be looking after the child for her to go out with friends, go travelling, etc. Not until she had done the hard yards to deserve it, at least. And even then it would probably be conditional.

I would definitely support her. My sister fell pregnant at 16 and and ran off with her boyfriends family hiding her pregnancy from our family until 7 months oregnant because she was terrified of the reaction and at first my parents were distraught and stormed out the next day they had time to process and supported her fully since then but I felt it was sad that he couldn't have shared her pregnancy joys and woes with us sooner.

As far as keeping bub or abortion or adoption I would just make sure my daughter knew enough about each option to make her own informed decision. My own views couldn't come into it as hard as it would be - it's her body and life and I wouldn't want her to make a decision she would regret in any way.
