Just Need Some Help

Aura - December 21

I'm almost 20 years old and pregnant. My boyfriend, whom I love so very much, wants me to have an abortion. I can see where he's coming from because he's 20 and he is still in school and working 2 jobs at the same time. He can't handle a child right now, but I'd rather choose adoption. He is saying that he doesn't want to choose adoption because the baby is his and he dosen't want to give it away. How can I talk some sense into him? Can someone please help me?

Interesting. He would rather get rid of it than let someone else have it. For you, giving a baby up for adoption is more of a wrench than abortion, just look at the numbers. Only about 2% of babies born to single moms go for adoption, whereas abortion claims 16% of conceptions. When you have spent 9 months attaching to that baby, you have to be pretty desperate to give it up. The nicest solution is to give the baby up for an open adoption, where you can continue some kind of relationship with the baby in the future. Few adopting parents are comfortable with this, as they fear the birth mother will somehow or other take the baby back. Try http://www.birthmother.org for a start.

She said she is ALMOST 20. This makes her 19, which I believe is still a teenager.
