    I'm sorry about you situation. It's unfortunate that both of you disagree. I hope that you will be able to change her mind for yours and the baby's sake.

    Hi Quincy. I can empathize with your situation. A pregancy is asking a lot for a woman to go through, but if you both agreed at the start and you morally object to it, then she should pay for the operation herself. You could always be a gentleman and help, but unfortunately this will almost definitely screw up your relationship with her either way.

    I will add that I have become very pro-choice over the last few years. Things aren't as cut and dry as once thought. Good luck on whatever you decide.

    My 2 cents:

    Abortion for convenience sake is wrong, IMHO. She should have the baby then give it up for adoption to a two parent family, unless you two decide to be parents and create a home for the child.

    My experience:

    When I was 19, my girlfriend got pregnant, and at the urgings of my "friends", I convinced her to have an abortion. Now I live with that on my conscience every day of my life. "What would the child be like now?", I ask myself that question every damn day.

    Don't go through with the abortion if you can help it.

    Of course it't a lot for a WOMAN to go thru. But this little girl did the deed and now doesn't want to deal with the consequences of her actions.

    I tell her that all the she might regret it...or how it could possibly affect her having children later in life. and its gonna haunt her later..

    I dunno, sounds like you have a lot of JW baggage still hanging around.

    Have you really re-thought your take on the pro-choice/pro-life thing since then?

    I mean, the JWs said life begins at conception - but, then, their teachings also rely on human souls and bodies being one and the same from conception.

    If that's not changes things, no?

    Maybe he just wants the kid and it's not about whether it's murder or not. I doubt he's worrying about the sin, maybe he just wants his child.
