39. Abortion? Yeah.
There are too many cases of screwed up families - which is why laws governing abortion have traditionally erred on the side of the pregnant person. If the teen is old enough to be having sex (and in theory giving birth) then she is old enough to make the decision to have an abortion. It is *her* life that is largely affected.
