I am 19 years old with a 2 year old little boy. I recently took a few pregnancy tests and found out that i am in fact pregant again. At first my husband was excited about having another baby, as am I, but then my parents who are against me haveing another child at this age convinced him that getting an abortion is the best thing for everyone involved. I don't believe in abortion personally, to each his own but it just isn't something i could see myself doing. Unfortunetly I am completely dependant on my husband as he is the only person working and financially taking care of our family and I am worried that if I keep the baby he will leave and I don't know how I am suppose to survive with my two children if he leaves. I am confused and hurt and I don't know what to do. HELP! I am just looking for some advice on how I can manage if he leaves or how I can convince him that this is not the right thing to do.Answer Question

I agree with what the first 2 posters said- your dh needs to man up and accept that the two of you created a life and that you both need to make whatever sacrifices necessary to raise a healthy loving child. Tell him that his parents don't call the shots in your life. You DON"T have to have an abortion just because of the situation or what he says. Tell him that you are having this baby, whether or not he wants to be there is up to him. Be firm! Find a book or go online and look at how your baby is developing (depending on how many weeks you are) and show him that the baby is already a life. Tell him how much you would be saddened if something were to happen to the baby. If it were me(dh would NEVER be pro choice, nor am I) I would tell dh that I was separating from him if he didn't back down. I wouldn't want to be with someone ho wanted to kill my child. CHILDREN come before anything!!!!
