So I've been dating my boyfriend for 3 months now and i found out i was pregnant about a month and a half ago. I'm about 8 or 9 weeks along. I lived with my dad in UT my whole life then this past year i moved to NH with my grandparents and met my boyfriend.. in order for me to keep the baby i have to move back! AND i have to go to a therapeutic boarding school to "help" me which i think will be a good thing becasue they work with teen mothers a lot... My dad is doing everything in his power to tell me it's the wrong decision and he's hoping it's deformed so i'll have to abort... my boyfriend wants me to abort to. everyone from where i'm from in utah was so against abortion and i'm pro choice and all in some cases, but in this case an abortion would NOT be my choice! i'll be 16 by the time I have the baby and plan on online schooling. I just want some advice on really just how to handle and tell everyone that i am keeping it. I debated for a month and decided to keep it, yet I'm still being sooo pressured to abort! I've been through a lot and I know i'd make a better mom than my mom was. i just need help or want to talk to someone who's been in this situation where EVERYONE wanted you to abort but you didnt listen! also, my boyfriend will be gone all 2012/2013 school year then starts college! he lives across the country too. do you think there is a chance he would be able to get custody and have our baby live with his parents? I will NEVER deny him visitation, but it's gonna be hard for him. and also, technically by law in NH and VT him having sex with me was statutory rape because i'm under 16 and he is 1 year and 11 months older than me. do you think there is a chance he could be charged with that?
