All he wants me to do is to have an abortion but I just don't know what to do...

I recently got out of a relationship of 11 years which was going nowhere. I then started dating a co-worker (we no longer work together) and now I am 4 months pregnant. I am scared and confused and I feel alone....all he wants me to do is to have an abortion but I just don't know what to do.... please advise. I also know that underneath it all, this guy is not going to be around if I do decide to keep it. I am 30 yrs old and I do have a decent job...please help.... Editor’s note: You don’t say very much about how you feel about the pregnancy but it does sound as if you are under some pressure to do what someone else wants when you’re not really sure what you want for yourself. The important thing for you right now is to have support you need to walk this journey by talking to a trained advisor at your nearest centre, on the helpline or through Online Advisor. An advisor would ask you about your circumstances, help you look at all the options available to you, give you accurate information and explore how you feel about each of them, helping you to make an informed decision that you feel you can live with. Don’t walk this alone any longer – there is help for you to choose what is best for you.
