You are in a relationship.. your boyfriend is abusive, emotionally and physically, you really don't want to be with him.. you get pregnant.. Question: Do you get an abortion or have the baby?

This is not a situation of mine.. I saw it on tv.

  • I don't know what I would do...

    But first, I can tell you I wouldn't be in the relationship... Every man that has ever hit me only did it once... And frankly, one still walks funny - he had to have stitches in a very sensitive area...

  • I leave the SOB and have the baby.

  • Have the baby, get a restraining order, document everything, get support from him and bar him from having contact with the child.

  • Leave him before he kills that baby.. call the police, sneak what you need to do. I HAVE BEEN THERE>> I LOST THE BABY..
    He hit me over the back with a wooden chair and i lost the baby.

    I honestly believe it was for the best... but you need to get out now.

  • just leave him and have the baby....he doesn't have to know he is the father. if he is abusive, he should be in where around you or that baby!!!!!!

  • I'd keep the baby, lose the boyfriend. I'd get authorities involved for protection orders.

  • Definitely leave the guy. The rest is totally up to the mother whether she keeps it, works with adoption, or decides on abortion. Its her life, her decision, her body, not mine.

  • god hates abortion so i cant agree on that but it is not easy raisig a child on your own so bring him up and pray to god to get out off that relationship because even tough he abuse you it isn't easy to leave knowing that your pregnant for him but you should leave because you may say he would not hurt your child but he already is cause that child knows you hurt even from the womb
