I have just taken a pregnancy test.
I am 22 years old with a three year old son, whom I love to death. I would not
change the decision that I made to have him.
His father and I have been
off and on for 5 years now. He is emotionally and verbally abusive. I do not know
what to do. He is willing to go to counseling and try to work it all out. And
now I am pregnant again.
I have been trying to get away from him for several
years now. I do not know if I go back to him because I love him and really somewhere
deep inside want to figure it out ... or if it is just an addictive relationship.
So it comes down to whether I can trust him to work it all out. Financially we
can afford this. And my son is old enough to understand all of it. I am really
afraid that I will end up being a single mother again ... only next time of two.
To have an abortion is a hard choice for me though. I am really concerned
that I will not make it all the way through the procedure. I have a feeling it
would all be too overwhelming. I'm at a loss.

no, they insist on -- the option of abortion. ... The message from courts around
the country and voters here in Washington is to stop wasting so much time fighting
the same abortion battles over and over again" (Seattle Times, 12/15).
