I'm a single mum to a gorgeous little boy whose almost 3, unfortunately after 4 years of being together his dad bolted when he found out I was pregnant. I recently met a man and even though we used protection I'm 4 weeks pregnant. He's pushing for an abortion. I had agreed with it at the beginning bur now I'm struggling to believe that it's the right decision. I don't think I could go through an abortion. But can I be a single mum of 2 kids by 2 different men at the age of 23? I really need some help and advice

Well, don't be forced into anything you don't want to do. I mean you must be 100% sure you do want an abortion, because you can never take that back. A real man would not push a women to do that. I do believe you both need to make the decision together, whether it be you carry the baby to term, abort, or give the baby up for adoption. You are NOT the first women to be so young with 2 children by different men. You will survive this if you decide to keep the baby and he leaves. And if you are wanting to have an abortion to keep this man around, who's to say he will not up and leave anyway? What happens then?

Oh no, I wasn't planning an abortion to keep him. No man is ever worth that. I just didn't want to bring another child into a fatherless world. I always thought the next time I have a child I would be in a longterm stable relationship. It's just the whole 2 kids by 2 different men & still single, all before I'm 25. Don't get me wrong I'm not a typical young mum who has no job & just has kids for the money, I'm one of the few that actually still thinks I should be out earning my own money. I have a good job, good pay, I've just been caught out. Even though we used protection, here I am 4 weeks gone with another mans unwanted baby. I think I know what I'm going to do, I just need to be told. That I'm not the only one & I'll be ok?

Nothing and no one would ever convince me to kill my own child.

I'm a single mom of 3 and it is rough, but I wouldn't trade one single second of my children's lives for anything in the world.
