Abortion scheduled -- thinking of keeping.....

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

A couple days ago I found out I"m pregnant after a one night stand. The guy is being great, he's going to help and come with me. We aren't together, I don't think we will be together. I'm in love with someone I will never be with and am working on getting over that.... I have a couple other kids and have been split from my husband for a year or so....but despite child support from my xh sometimes I struggle to make it each month though I can certainly cut back in some areas. This is the right choice, the best choice for me, my family, the baby....


But....part of me, the mom in me, is dying at the thought. What if its my last baby ever and I get rid of it? What if I meet someone and we want to have kids and can't and I always wonder about this one....I don't want to be tied to this guy....I don't want to be that mom that has a handful of kids by different fathers...i hate sharing my kids as it is and this guy would want to be involved....he makes good money but I still can't support another kid....I have a new job I can't take time off from.....I can't afford daycare for another one....but....ther'es always that but. I miss being pregnant, I miss having a baby. I know this is not the time in my life to be doing any of that, I'm young (almost 30) and I have lots of time....but....

Just had to get that off my chest....i haven't told anyone here I am going and I thought some of you might be able to relate, or understand, or have words of advice. PLEASE no abortion debates, that's not what this is about AT ALL. I don't care if you agree or disagree with abortion, I'm just needing to share my internal angst at making the right choice.....

 If you are not sure and have doubts then maybe you should not do it.

Agreed that everyone should be allowed to voice their opinion but is it necessary to do it in that manner when this woman is having a hard enough time as it is? It's cruel. And then to say it behind the name signed "Anonymous". If we should have the right to voice our opinion shouldn't she have the right to face her accuser? Ijs

Quoting KrissyKC:

Actually, I disagree.   I think we should be allowed to voice our opinions.  Today we have every freedom (freedom to kill unborn babies) but we don't have the freedom of speech to say, "hey, I disagree!"

Not your place to tell her the right or wrong choice.

Quoting Anonymous:

Its NEVER the right choice to MURDER a baby. It may be the right choice for you but how is it the right choice for the baby? The baby has a right to life just like you and your other children. Have you ever thought of adoption? I am adopted because my mom was in the same position but she was also a teen mom she had me at 16 and in total there are 10 of us ssoo....
