How would you go about telling your seventeen year old step daughter that abortion is the best option?
She found out she was pregnant and wants to keep the baby because shes SO sure that mr. perfect *babys daddy* are going to stay together forever. They have only been seeing eachother for three months and he has already cheated on her a few times. She is a senior in high school but will probably have to take the year over again because shes pretty much failing every class as is. Her argument- She will try harder now that she has someone else to think about. She is immature and i know she wont wake up in the middle of the night with a newborn. She refuses to change diapers of any sort and when my son was an infant she complained about his constant crying ALL the time. I know she is not ready for a child.
Doubt it. Tell her she has to move out. I know you don't want to but it will be the only way to get her to grow up.

I have shes 100% convinced she is keeping it. She said she doesnt believe in murdering an innocent child. I told her its not a child yet but she wont listen and is shoving all this pro life crap in my face. I feel bad for her but she should have used protection and birth control!
No, and you shouldn't. What you should do is give her all her options in a non judgemental way. Hope for the best.
Don't force her. It's not your choice to make. If she wants to keep her baby, she should be able to. It's never the best option in a case like this! She can always adopt the baby out to someone who can and will love him or her and give the baby a good home.
