Who's in Charge Here?

Driving with Teen earlier in the week, I was musing outloud about a character.

Me: "I know she was raped - but why did she keep the baby? Why didn't she have an abortion or give it up for adoption? That's what I would have done. But she kept it."

Teen: "But you're the writer. You decide what your characters do and then they do it."

Me: "Not always."

Teen: "Now you sound crazy."

So:
A. Have your characters done things contrary to what you do in their place?

B. Got any ideas on WHY she kept the baby?
