  • So don't do it. He can't force you. You need to make plans for you & your 3 y/o to live a life w/out him since he's not ready to be the father he needs to be. GL

  • Ok so it's your body not his. He'd better get ready for a second child because it sounds like it IS going to happen. He doesn't get to say what you do with your body

  • Don't abort unless it's something you want. Meanwhile he doesn't have to carry that burden and memory with him. If he wasn't ready for more kids then he should have worn a condom and taken extra precautions.

  • What birth control were you on?

  • He can want whatever he wants. But you don't have to get another abortion if that's NOT what you want. Get your legal ducks in a row because even if he doesn't walk on you, you should kick him out of your life. The nerve of him. Don't want a kid? THEN USE A CONDOM OR DON'T HAVE SEX. But don't force someone else into something they don't want.

  • Does he know how babies are made? Because if he didnt want another one, he shouldn't be taking part in activities that create that situation.

  • He can't force you to get an abortion. You can have your baby, but he sounds kind of like a jerk and he might not stick around if you keep the baby (hopefully he turns out to be a good guy and stays).
    I sincerely hope you look into a better form of birth control after this baby if you have already had one abortion.

  • your body, your choice

  • tell him he had better like the child support, you had some kind of melt down communication in birth control, bottom line he stuck it inside, so he had better know the risks meaning you had better have this baby.

  • If he does not want another child he should have himself taken care of. Either a Vasectomy or no have sex. This is his "fault" as much as it is yours and it is certainly not the child's/ It is unfair for him to think that you should have to go trough multiple abortions just so he can have his fun. This is not my decision but I would dump him and keep the baby
