What would be a way to handle a teenage pregnancy as an atheist?

So, for teen pregnancy, how would an atheist deal with it? Not like I did. Totally not. Totally wasn’t stupid and didn’t use the condom at first but put it on later. Totally not. Yeah, totally just a friend of mine.

If they don’t want an abortion and want to raise the kid, not adopt it out, do you think that’s the best idea? What do you think is the best idea for this?

What the fuck has atheism to do with this? Atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods, end of.

Regarding the pregnancy, I do not know how to respond, I do not know the girl, her circumstances or (most importantly) HER wishes.

So cannot advise.

Well, atheists tend to have specific views on it, that’s why I’m asking.

People are different. Circumstances are different. Sometimes we seek answers where there are none to be had. Way too many intervening variables on this imaginary scenario.

Same old options I guess:

do they now? I just explained that atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods, you still have not explained to me how a view on pregnancy affects that?

As you seem hard of comprehension I will explain…of the two hundred or so avowed atheists on this forum some are socialists, some are feminists of some sort or other, some hate guns with a passion, some own guns or wish they did. But they are all atheists because atheism is a single issue.

Only theists love to try and make out (wrongly) in their tiny pointed heads that there is such a thing as an atheist worldview.

There is NO “ATHEIST VIEW.”.

I didn’t mean that there was some mythical “atheist view” - I meant that atheists tend to lean more one way than another.

Can’t speak for others here, but just off the top of my head I would suggest not getting a teenager pregnant. Problem solved.

do “atheists”? do you have comprehension problems?

You know what, nevermind. I’ll ask someone else.

Perfect answer lol. But the problem seems to be more along the lines of it already happened.

So? You ever hear of time travel machines? Duh! (Damn, gotta explain EVERYTHING to some of these folks.)

Ask her out on a date? Hell, you already know she is putting out.

And that she is not too bright.

It is entirely the young woman’s business (and her family as she is a minor).

If you are an adult then you should be talking to her, correction: LISTENING to her and saving money for the child’s education/needs.

Not all atheists will share this opinion.

What would be a way to handle teenage pregnancy as a right-handed person?

I am in full agreement. It is her body, and only she can decide what happens to it. Of course, good counseling, education and support should and would be a good support.

The opposite way a leftie would handle it?

Good point. Because left-handed people are just weird.

Sinister comes from a Latin word meaning “on the left side,” and while the earliest uses of the word in English—dating from the 14th century—pertain to some measure of evil, forboding, or malevolence, others retain the Latin meaning of “left”
