Don't abort. You've already made one stupid decision.
Exactly. I am the youngest of 9 kids. 7 of us are adopted, including me. Adoption is an amazing thing!! There are lots of people out there who have open arms and homes and are ready to raise a child as their own. Some have kids and want to share their home and others can't have kids who want them so badly. I am adopted and have strong feelings about it. My husband and I have been trying for 6 years. Adoption is sounding like the best option for us. We would love to open our home and our hearts just as my parents did when they took us all in. Don't abort. You have no idea how lucky you are to have the ability to have children. You are throwing away a life and eliminating an opportunity for couples like my husband and I who want kids. It's frustrating to see women get pregnant and abort a baby just because it's unwanted. It's a human, not a gum wrapper.
don't ask for advice on here, most people will just give you their own biased opinion.. talk to a counselor, consider your options and do what is right for you.. if you feel that an abortion is your best option, then perhaps that is what you should do..
NO you have no right to abort ! no one on earth has given you that authority!
honeyswizgal: please cite the evidence where you came to learn that no one on earth has the right to abort.
Thats right honey. Do not abort!
Congratulations! You're going to be a mom! Please don't murder the soul in your womb.
What you believe is right for you--don't let someone else talk you into something
She was already talked into having sex....so this should be an easy one.
Not quite on point.
Um...actually it is. It's murder. I guess that's why you're Unperfect, Barbie.
I know having a baby was not in the plans at this time, but, if you were woman enough to make the decision to jump in the bed with someone...then you're woman enough to deal with the consequences that comes along with sex! This is one of them. You could put the baby up for adoption once he/she is born, that way you could resume your studies and plans without the interruption of a screaming baby at night, or you can have the baby and take care of your responsibility....life is not easy and no one knows that better than parents. Besides, school and your life career is not totally over; however, you have to incorporate a new strategy and have a strong support system! With a team of people helping you along the way, I'm sure motherhood will come natural to you! It's not the baby's fault that you were irresponsible, so why punish them for being in the womb? It's a blessing to find yourself in the family way...granted when you're ready and more established, but this baby that you're carrying is still a gift and she/he will add to your life in more ways than you could possibly think! If you ever need to talk, send me a message! :)
I agree, you could always have the baby adopted and then your studies wouldnt be too disrupted. People who have abortions often struggle with guilt and need counselling for depression years afterwards.
No one can make that decision for you, hon.<br />
Just do your research about your options, and follow your heart.
have the baby
I strongly disagree on abortion..that baby has the right to live!!! if you abort that then that same thing goes like you shoot person on his head... that 5week old fetus has life and you dont have the right to take it away....face the consequence you've made and deal with it.... May God guide you to the right path...
If you cant handle a child, give it to someone who can. But abortion is murder, and it will feel worse than just giving birth to a beautiful little baby:) you may even decide to keep it. But i am strongly against abortion, it was your decision to have sex, maybe not get pregnant, but still. We all make decisions we have to live with. The question is, what decision will it be easier for you to live with? Giving birth to a child, that you helped create, and taking care of it/giving it to someone who can take care of it...or taking a life that never even got the chance to truly live???
My wife had an abortion before we were married and although we now have 3 children, she still regrets that decision.
Adoption. There are so many wonderful couples looking to adopt, it would be a wonderful thing to make their dream a reality. However, keep in mind when you deliver your whole world may change. I'll put it like this, remember in the Twilight books when Jacob talked about imprinting & how it was like a string was cut from everything that held him to this earth & reattached to his soul mate & they were your reason for living? That's what it's like for a mother & their child & you won't know for sure until you see that little face. So, I would make inquiries into adoption, have the baby, then make up your mind from there. If you are not attached to your baby then you can always place for adoption. Also, please after this pregnancy get onto consistent birth control so you won't have to face this difficult decision again. Good luck & God Bless. :)
There are loads of people who dont have the choice to bring a precious life into the world- maybe they are infertile or they dont have a "significant other". It seems unfair that those people are childless, yet you are considering aborting a healthy fetus.<br />
I have seen some Anti Abortion material and it's very graphic...let me just say, *I* wouldnt have an abortion, not even if I was pregnant with a handicapped child. The moment you become pregnant you *ARE* a Mother, whether you like it or not...and you will always be a MOTHER, whether your child is alive or dead.<br />
If, you did have the abortion and you found later in life that you could not become pregnant how would you feel? Forgive me for sounding judgemental, but having an abortion will not just make it all go away...you will always think of that child and what/who it might have been, better to have it adopted so someone can love it. To the right person, your baby will be a MUCH LOVED GIFT.
Put the baby up for adoption.
adopt the baby out to a loving couple
Have your baby and finish your education.
I know what you shouldn't do, listen to other people. You should do what you want to do, it's your body, it's your life.
I believe in choice to have an abortion or not. After having had one, I swore I would never have another. The remorse is mine. You may not feel remorse. I feel for the child I would have had. I miss her-I knew it would have been a girl. She would have been 24 or 25. I missed a lot. I didn't get to watch her grow up and I didn't get to watch her interact with her much older brothers and one sister. I want her back, but cannot ever get her back. I do not demean you nor do I wish to preach to you. It is your decision and only yours. Do what you feel you must. I wish I had not. But, my life is not yours and yours is not mine. Take care.
Your profile says you hate animal cruelty, seriously? Man up, give that child a chance. There are people out there who would kill to be pregnant. Be able to sleep at night knowing you made someone a happy parent. Own this, years from now you will look back with a smile, not regret.
couldn't have said that any better I wish I could be a Father and would do anything to be one.
that's right...make the baby suffer cos you couldn't keep your damn legs closed. next time tell your partner to wrap his **** before he sticks ya... idiot
You have options I would strongly talk to a counselor. The decision is completely up to you and you only and no one should change the choice you come up with. best of luck
