    Its a big burden to bear and thereafter a big responsibility to arrange upbringing. So if you are not yet ready to bear the burden physically as well as financially, go for expert advice.

    Abortion is murder plain and simple, I know from personal experience. Either way this child that is apart of you will never leave you. Killing it will send you to bad places you can not now fathom. Do NOT do this, I beg you!! Not only for the baby's sake but your own. It will be hard to keep it, but totally worth it - i have 3 now. Don't look back and regret your choice but know you did what was good with your circumstances. There are plenty of places to find out about adoption and give your child a good home if you are unable to provide it yourself. We all make mistakes, do not compound yours

      What kind of personal experience did you have to 'prove' that abortion was murder. Are you typing this from a jail cell, where you will be spending the rest of your life because you had an abortion and were then convicted of murder?

    The baby shouldn't have to die because u messed up. You made your 'choice' when you decided to have unprotected sex. It's either raise the baby or give it up for adoption. Just because abortion is legal that doesn't make it right.

    OK so are you financially able to support a child for 18 years? Do you have medical insurance if you live in the U.S.? Does it cover maternity care? Is your mother willing to watch a baby while you work? If not, who would? If you go on to date someone else, would your mother watch a baby while you stay overnight at your boyfriend's house? Will your job cover an extra $100 a week, which is what a baby costs? Can you work and live on your own?

    What happens if you get sick? Who would watch the baby then?

    Personally, you should see a doctor and get tested for STIs, since you weren't using condoms.

    BTW, you're not a breeding dog that has to have a child and give it up to others. There's no reason why you should have to be pregnant for nine months because someone else 'might' want to adopt a newborn.

    Keep it if you think you’re financially secure and are ready to parent. If not then give them to a good home.

    My daughter was a teen mum and gave up her life to raise her son but she could not have done it without my help and she has just graduated from university with a Masters Degree but she is 38 years old. If you decide on abortion it is not our place to judge, Good Luck

    I think you already made your choice. You need to have an abortion.

    After that, get on BIRTH CONTROL. Then have great sex.

    If you are not ready to raise a baby, then you should put it up for adoption so it can have a good life with two loving parents.

      ....or it ends up in the foster care system or orphanage for it's entire childhood, growing up knowing no one wanted it, then it gets cast out into the world at 18 with no family and never knowing what it's like to be loved or have a family.

    are you a murderer? that is a human being. I am sorry you made bad choices and got pregnant. But killing a human being to try and erase your bad choices is not really an option, it is just making things worse. If you cannot afford to raise the child as your own, give it up for adoption

      What part of 'fetus' is unclear. And you clearly know nothing about abortion if you believe it involves 'cutting up babies.' The vast majority of abortions take place in the first few weeks.
