  • As stated it is your choice and you have to live with it.

  • Why not just give him the baby? It was your decision to spread your legs without protection. Why not give the baby a choice? And your boyfriend a choice to be a dad?

    I'm Pro-Life and found out I was pregnant when I was 16. It was difficult, but I survived and have a beautiful 17 yr old daughter who is a lot smarter than I was.

  • Ahhh- you responded.
    Ok- ultimately it is your body your choice.
    If you are referring to him as baby's father and not boyfriend or husband then you must have some misgivings about the relationship.
    If you are only considering terminating because you dont like the guy- not because having a child at this point in your life is ill advised- then you may want to talk to someone.

    If he doesnt know you are pregnant, IMHO, dont tell him and keep the termination private.

  • You don't have to state them here, but you should think clearly about the reasons you want an abortion. If you're not ready to raise a child, could you give the baby to the dad, or do you have misgivings about him as a parent? Could you both put the baby up for adoption? Or are you worried about being pregnant or carrying this particular pregnancy for some reason? When push comes to shove, it's your body and your choice whether or not to carry a baby to term. Personally I would let the dad know if at all possible, unless it puts you in danger of abuse to do so.

  • Can you answer some hard questions? Are you willing to?

    WHY are you not ready for a baby?
    Trust me. I am not attempting to be judgmental. I am only asking you to voice your concerns. If talking it out confirms your decision, so be it.

    I simply, honestly believe that anyone who is considering termination MUST not have the procedure performed willy nilly.
