7 weeks pregnant and considering abortion.

I am a 23 year old mother of an eleven year old son, whom I love very much, and I am 7 weeks pregnant.
I am not ready to have any other kids at the moment and I'm considering abortion as I am not financially stable.
I am thinking of abortion, but can't afford it and I haven't told the father because I am scared that he might bail out just like he did the first time, and only came back a few months ago..please help!

Editor's Comment

It would be good if you could talk your decision through with someone and look at all the information about each of the options. If you are thinking about abortion the best method of referal is through your GP who can refer you to an NHS service in your area. There are different methods of abortion and information to think through, so I would encourage you to access counselling services through the Careconfidential helpline, Online counselling, or call a centre in your area.
