I Had An Abortion At 16, And Soon Another One...

I was 16 when I got pregnant. It was with my now ex-husband. I took the surgical route and went to sleep and when I woke up, it was finished. I cried for a long time... and felt guilty for a long time.

I am now 27. I just found out that I am 3 weeks pregnant. My new boyfriend is adamant on having an abortion cause he doesn't want a child. I'm 50-50 and have spent the last couple days crying. I am not sure what I want. We are going on vacation in 4 days, and when I come back, I will be scheduling an abortion. I am scared. I feel alone. Everyone is telling me to keep the baby, but I don't want to bring a baby into a world where he/she is not wanted.

I live with my parents now since my divorce. I live in my childhood bedroom. I've just started to repair my life. I'm starting to save for a home... and having a baby would ruin that dream. I am scared and I don't know what to do.

Don't do anything that you're not prepared to live with, which ever way you choose. There are clearly pros and cons for each. Do what's best for you. Best wishes

Everything in life has meaning. It sounds like you are very alone. God is giving you a gift...a third chance...will you except it!? Will you finally let yourself find a love that is unconditional and everlasting?
