Hi, I recently got pregnant and I don’t know what to do. It was an accident and i’m not so sure i’m ready for a child. Do you have any advice? I’ve asked some pro-choice blogs too, I want to hear what both sides have to say.
First of all, I was an accident, the result of an unplanned teenage pregnancy, so I am more than a little biased toward seeing your child make it out of your womb alive.
The best advice I can give any mother in your situation is to understand that you are carrying a real and living human being inside of you. And not just any life, but the life of your own son or daughter. A valuable member of not only your immediate family, but of our human family.
I assume that because you are seeking advice from people who advocate for abortion, you are considering killing your child. This is unthinkable for someone like me. Killing your child at 12 weeks gestational age is absolutely no different than killing your child two years after birth. You have known nothing but legalized abortion and so your moral compass is likely skewed. I do applaud you for seeking out advice from both sides of the debate, this strongly indicates there is hope for your child.
I have recommended posts on my blog that I encourage you to view. If you feel abortion is still an option after seriously considering each of these posts, then there’s probably nothing I will be able to say to you to change your mind.
I will leave you with one final thought. I have three beautiful children and they have absolutely made my life worth living and they make each day something to look forward to. You will never know a love stronger than your child’s love.
If you need to talk, have questions, or need support, please call 800-712-4357 or text HELPLINE to 313131 anytime, night or day. Of course, I will do whatever I can to help you choose life for your son or daughter.
You are much stronger than many will lead you to believe.
