So, I’m contemplating if I want to have this baby. I am already a single mother which is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, now pregnant by a man that I know will not support this baby because he is not mature enough to deal with the reality of being a parent.
He will only run off and leave me to deal with the burden of being 24 with two kids whose fathers are not men, only boys. I’m afraid because I feel like if I have an abortion God will punish me. He will not forgive me for denying his creation, I know that is a decision I can’t take back but having this baby will leave me stuck in a place for the rest of my life.
One day I want a man to look at me as worthy enough to be his wife, not some slut who has all these babies by all these men. My oldest is 9 and I vowed a long time ago to never relive the pain of raising my children alone. Kids need two parents and I want my children to have that. I don’t want to be the reason why they don’t.
A man will only do to you what you allow and I refuse to be used for my body and left to deal with a baby alone. So I’ll pray that God forgives me for this, but I just can’t go thru.
I am the product of an unplanned pregnancy of a 16 year old girl. She chose life for me, but later made the exact same decision that you are about to make for many of the same reasons. She killed my little sister by surgical abortion when I was three years old. She has been devastated by her decision ever since. To this day, she still breaks down in tears whenever she talks about her dead baby girl. I, too, have been saddened to tears thinking about her loss and all of the memories never made and the nieces and nephews I will never have a chance to know and love.
The child growing within you is real and deserves your love and protection. Please do not lie down before an abortionist and let him take your baby’s life. And please don’t swallow Mifeprex to poison your living son or daughter. Either way, killing them will be your legacy and will forever change who and what you are.
Your child needs you now more than he or she ever will. Please sustain the life they have every human right to. I assure you that they would rather live without a father than be killed in the womb. You are strong enough to do this. I promise you.
These resources will help both of you hold on to your humanity.
