I already have a two year old daughter. I got pregnant a year after having her and ended up having an abortion. Now, I'm pregnant for the third time. I'm very torn. I don't want another baby but I don't want to go through the abortion process again.

I look at my own daughter and see her smiling and playing and I hear a voice say, "Why can't you show this one mercy?"

I feel so lost. I'm 19 and I know people will be like, "Wow, she had another one?!". I had split from my husband for two months and got a boyfriend (who i'm pregnant by now). Now, my husband wants to get back together but he doesn't know I'm pregnant. Oh, what a life I lead.

Oh my goodnes, I feel so sorry to hear your story. But you have to know that everything happens for a reason and a baby is always a blessing. My advice is if your relationships issues are making you feel like that then they might not be good...

Oh my goodnes, I feel so sorry to hear your story. But you have to know that everything happens for a reason and a baby is always a blessing. My advice is if your relationships issues are making you feel like that then they might not be good enough. Although you're very young I'm sure you've had enough experiences to be madure by now. Good luck

As girls we all struggle with what other people think of us. It's this huge burden that led me down a path towards abortion when I found myself unexpectedly pregnant. I knew that if I kept my baby it would be a very hard, embarassing and possibly career ending thing for many people in my family, but I also feared what would happen if I actually did have an abortion. After deciding to keep the baby I did consider all other options such as adoption. This is such a wonderful, life-giving option but I did choose to keep him and raise him myself. Two years later I do not regret anything. I have a story to tell and a little boy to love. We all have wonderful stories that develop each day. Pregnancy means new life and new life is something to be protected and cherished. I wish you all the wisdom in the world deciding how to approach your situation and I encourage you to look into the future and ask yourself, what will my life look like 2 years from now if I choose this option? What about this option? Your life is what you want it to be and where there's a will there's a way
