The father of this baby does not want it and would like me to get an abortion.
Thank you for sharing your very brave story. I am so sorry that the father of your baby has turned his back on you, and refused to take any responsibility. It is not easy to be a single Mum not knowing whether the baby's father will have a change of heart. I'm glad you have supportive family and friends who will always be there for you.
It is important to do what is right for you, and if you are strongly against abortion then you would suffer mentally and emotionally if you went against your core values and beliefs.
I hope that in time you will be glad about your decision and feel that being a Mum brings its own joys and fulfillment.
