I feel like I need to get an abortion....but my emotions are getting the best of me. Honestly, I can not afford it. The kid will not have its father around. And my daughters father who I want a normal friendly relationship with says he does not want to be in my daughters life if I keep this baby. It is killing me inside at the thought of keeping the the baby and it kills me to think about getting an abortion. Especially since I usually do not have strong pregnancy and have to take progesterone and this pregnancy is very strong and healthy as per my ob. I am so lost.

I think if your daugthers father is going to act like a child, he doesn't deserve to be in your life at all. You do what you gotta do but your emotions are all over the place right now, and you should talk to someone about this before you make a major desicion like this!

Have you thought about adoption?
You wont be having an abortion and you wont be keeping the baby?

adoption is always an answer..... and it gives you plenty of time to think about what YOU really want.

I am considering Adopting a child. You could gift a loving couple with a Miracle child they have been waiting for.

You have to weigh all of the pro's and cons. If I were in your situation I would abort but that doesn't mean that is the best option for you. I would take what the father of your daughter out of the equation.

i believe that if your daughters father is going to try to get you to kill your baby, he needs to GTFO of your life right now, and you need to make him.

Adoption is not always an answer.

I wouldn't let your daughters father's feelings influence you getting an abortion... its not his place really... if he TRULY wanted to be in her life he would be whether you kept the baby or not.
Maybe look into adoption or some programs to help single mothers if you are unsure about abortion...
