Got pregnant before I met my boyfriend. Now he wants me to abort it. Advice?
Hi. My name is Anisah and I'm 10 weeks pregnant now. I also met my current boyfriend 2 and a half months ago. When I found out I was pregnant we both thought it was his and we were both scared but happy. Then I found out how far along I was and knew that this pregnancy was the result of an a sexual relationship that I recently had with my supervisor. I informed him of the pregnancy and he told me he can't afford to help me and I should have an abortion. My boyfriend is hurt that what seems to begin as a very promising relationship has come to such bump in the road and wants me to have an abortion as well.
I don't want any of you ladies to think these guys are pushing me in a direction I don't want to go in. The truth is that I'm not sure if I want this baby but I don't want to kill it either. Putting it up for adoption is also a painful option. My mother grew up in foster care and so did my boyfriend.
I'm also still in college and work full time to pay for it. I rent a room from my father and I know I can provide for this child with hard work and savings, while setting myself back in school. But I 'm not sure if I can live with the reminder of who the father is as well as the reminder that she/he won't have a father at all. I'm not at all assuming that my boyfriend will be around whether I abort the baby or not. What I want to know is what's best for the baby? To not attempt to give it life, which may be filled with much emptiness and instability? Or should I just go along with it and hope I can give this kid a better life alone and I did having both my parent
