He immediately pushed for abortion

Hi, maybe telling my story will help me better cope and help someone else. I've been trying to get my life together and graduate college.
Shortly after I moved out of my parents house against their will, and began my new job at the cheesecake factory, I met a seemingly awesome guy who knew how to say all the right things. Although he was a co-worker things were less than casual. Since I just moved and didn't have a bed yet, he opened his home to me and I enjoyed every minute with him.
Our first date was the last day of the Tx fair, Oct. 20, and on Thanksgiving day I found out I was pregnant. Although I was shocked I wasn't devastated. When I told him he immediately pushed for abortion. He was extremely rude and told me he wanted to be with his ex, and they were still in love and he would be emotionally unavailable to the child.

He said if I continued with my pregnancy he didn't want anything to do do with me or the baby.

He even went as far as to threaten he'd move to California.
I'm 20 so I told my parents and they were very supportive but only if I got an abortion.

It's Christmas Day and my heart aches because nobody wants this baby but me. I'm 8 weeks and my abortion wouldn't be able to be completed until 10-11 weeks.
There is a little baby down there and I understand it would be a lot easier to terminate this pregnancy but I choose life!!! It is going to be difficult for me but nothing is impossible because I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! My mother set my state mandated ultrasound appointment through planned parenthood this Friday, from there I'll have another week before the abortion consultation takes place. So I'll have about a week to tell everyone that I choose life and I'm not killing this baby that is already alive. Thank you for reading, and good luck to you

It is hard for you to stand up for what you want and believe in, especially as you are getting a lot of pressure to have an abortion. It may seem the easier solution, but if it goes against your values and beliefs it may be much harder to live with in the long term.
