1. There would be no complications during childbirth.
2. Daughter neither got raped or has sex with relatives
3. Nothing is wrong with the fetus and will function outside the womb
4. There was nothing stopping her from buying condoms or birth control. Religious or otherwise.
5. She would not have to take care of the child and could put it up for adoption if she wished to do so.
In short there would be no excuse for her to get pregnant in the first place and no obligation to actually care for the child once it was born. She would basically be treating it as an inconvenient tumor that would get in the way of her nightlife.
Now I know many will say the chances of having someone be so innately selfish is slim, but my belief is if there is any chance that it could happen, assume it will.
So with all the conditions met and under the pretence that it would only happen after the abortion procedure would a family be wrong in disowning their daughter?

Wow, I meant to hit "yes" but hit "no" instead... my bad.
Anyway, i dont think its EVER appropriate to disown family, especially parents/children. You brought her into this world to stand by her, and that's what you need to do. You dont need to support her decision, but she is still your daughter. My grandmother disowned my mother briefly before my mother died, and my grandmother never forgave herself for it. I was 7 when my mom died, and I watched my grandmother come undone. All she ever said was how "she lost so much time" and how "her anger, spite, and pride weren't worth losing her daughter."
Could you honestly live with never talking to your child again? What if all of this is a phase, and one day she changes her ways and feels regret about her actions? How will you know? Even if she doesn't, are you really okay with losing out on this part of your life? What if one day she chooses to have another child? Would you be okay never seeing your grandchild (ren)?
Disowning someone sounds so easy to do -- just get angry and dont talk to someone. But in truth, it's an ugly process that ruins families. It's much better to swallow your anger and find a way to get past your issues with your daughter.
