I don't know what to do.

I've been in a relationship with an physically, emotionally, and verbally abusive man. We've been together on and off since 2012. I had an abortion from him last year in June after our one year anniversary and I was living in regret.
I recently found out I was pregnant a little more than a month ago, I had decided to keep the child and do it on my own because we were separated. I did not want to let him know about it because I didn't want to deal with his torture and harassment.
He now knows about the child and has come back acting completely worst than before. He is really torturing me and my ten year old son, he's also become more physically abusive and continues to threaten us. I don't want to hurt my son who was extremely happy but I don't want to deal with this man. I'm so confused I don't know what to do.

Editor's Comment

You sound as though you are feeling trapped and struggling to break all ties with this man. It would be sad to go down the abortion route just because you are feeling fearful of him. There are organisations in place that are there to protect you from an abusive relationship. The Domestic Violence helpline could be your first port of call.If you would like to talk to someone on the CareConfidential helpline please call 0300 4000 999, or log into the confidential Online advisor for unplanned pregnancy support.
