tell her to stop, because this will injure the baby. tell her that if she doesn't want the baby, stay away from abortion. she could have the baby and put it up for adoption.

I know she doesn't want the baby, but how could you punch your own kid? Punching yourself in the stomach can cause the baby to grow up with mental problems, and that would just worsen her situation, so you might want to let her know that she should stop that. It's not the baby's fault, it's hers. First, your friend should go to the Clinic and find out if she's pregnant, and most Clinic's are confidental, so her parents wouldn't find out or anything. And plus, they could give you advice on what to do if she WAS pregnant, like consider adoption [ which would be the best solution ], abortion, or if she's not pregnant, provide condoms or the pill or something to prevent this from happening again. I hope I helped. <3

I knew this girl that pulled that same stunt...It turned around to bite her in the ass because she ended up giving birth to a son that now has mental problems. What makes her think she's pregnant and she is only a few days? There is almost no symptoms that early. Please do your best to stop her and talk her out of the stupid decesion she is making to harm that child-if there is one. Let her know, that it is not that child's fault that she was irresponsible! Tell her to go to the health Department and get a pregnancy test. If she is pregnant the counselors there can help her make the best decesion such as abortion, adoption or the 72hr pill. she can also get on birth control if it turns out she is not pregnant. All of this is free of charge if she is under the age of 18-the State pays for everything and they won't tell her parents! Be a good friend-and help her...because God knows....She needs it!

Stop her first of all she dosn't even know if she is really pregnant and she is hurting a baby (if she is) just because the baby hasn't been born does not mean its not a person. What if when her mother was pregnant with her she punched her stomach so she could kill her own daughter because she was unwanted? It is not the babys fault that it is there its your firends fault, please I know its hard but try to stop her from hurting the baby and then killing it. This is a very hard time for her. Call a support hotline you can find the number in the yellow pages. I truley hope she is not pregnant and putting her babys life in danger as well as her own. I hope the best for you and your firend.

"Thinks"?? So she's putting her own life in danger because she THINKS she's pregnant?
That really is a terrible thing to do. She could be damaging vital organs. and if she is pregnant, then yes, it can definitely harm the baby causing a miscarriage.
There are other ways to sort this.
Firstly, by getting a pregnancy test.
Then she needs to think about her options.
By the sounds of it, she doesn't want a baby.
Abortion it is then.
But at the end of the day, she only has herself to blame.
Let this be a lesson to her.
and please, get her some help.

vermillion26 answered Friday August 11 2006, 11:27 pm:
Wow, those answers were a little judgemental. They were right in saying that she should get a pregnancy test to find out for sure, she should also stop punching herself because as someone already said, not only could she hurt the baby, she could cause severe health problems to herself. If she does turn out to be pregnant, she should set an appointment at "planned parenthood" or some simmilar organization and set up an abortion with a reputable doctor. Tell her NOT to do it in one of those backdoor unsanitary outfits. An abortion is a big desicion, she should think about it and adoption could be another option for her. Punching herself COULD cause a miscarriage, but its not a garuntee. Please get her to take a pregnancy test and set up an appointment at planned parenthood if need be. Good Luck. I hope everything works out for you and your friend.

Love, Rainbow

I don't want to sound judgmental of your friend or anything, but that seems so low for someone to do that. Of course that could hurt the baby!! IF she's scared of being pregnate, she probably is trying to give herself a miscarriage
Explain to her that this isnt' fair. Even if she gives the baby away, it still has the right to live. Also, this culd cause health problems for her, too.

Tell her to stop doing that!Omg thats horrible!If she got pregnant thats her friggen problem!!God even if she had a baby.Its not an unborn childs fault!

Thats seriously a problem.She should talk to a psychologist or doctor or something.

If she thinks shes pregnant tell her to take a friggen pregnacy test there...problem solved.If she just used a condom in the first place then maybe she wouldnt have got pregnant(if she is).But If I were you id get her help.
