I am in dilemma. I am 22 years old and I am a university graduate. I would be through with my NYSC next month which is October. The problem is I am pregnant, and yes, the man accepted the pregnancy, and he is ready to marry me. He is a responsible man, but he is not that financially stable. Also, my parents must not know that I am pregnant because they do not believe in getting pregnant before marriage. I am really scared right now. I am thinking of going for an abortion, but then I heard that complication comes up sometimes. What should I do?
I think you should be happy that the man who impregnated you is responsible and ready to accept both you and the child. Now, you are considering abortion because of what your parents would say and do to you, you want to put your life at risk and murder an innocent child because of what people would think about you. IT IS NOT WORTH IT, because the deed has already been done; you are pregnant and it is not a new thing. Why should you do such terrible thing as abortion? What if you don’t get to conceive another baby if you abort this? Have you thought about that? My dear, this is about your own life now and not about your parents. You are a graduate already and would be through with your NYSC next month, what more? You are not a kid any longer and you are at a point where you can take good decisions for yourself. If you go for the abortion and something terrible happens to you, your parent whom you did the abortion for, would be “madder” at you for doing such. Dear, it is all about you now. Yes, your parents would get offended, but it would not last forever. They would forgive you, put their loving arms around you, support and celebrate you again. BE WISE, SAY NO ABORTION.
Wish you well,
