Don't want to have this baby for my ex-boyfriend


May 22, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I am 19 years old and I am pregnant for my ex-boyfriend. When I found out that I was pregnant, my heart skipped a lot of beats.

I felt uneasy and cold sweat washed me because I wasn't expecting this. He has a job, but he doesn't make enough for himself.

I am thinking about terminating this pregnancy as it is only two weeks old. I was quick enough to know that my period didn't come, and something must have gone wrong.

I just got accepted for university and I am working to send myself there.

I wasn't ready for this and my parents would kill me if they find out that I am pregnant. I think it is too much to put on hold.

Also, my ex-boyfriend isn't responsible enough to take up the role of a father. He doesn't have any subjects and I never heard him talk about going back to school.

He doesn't have anywhere for himself. I don't want to put my life on hold for what I am not ready for. Do you think my doctor will understand?


Dear S.W.,

How come it is only now that you are thinking of all these things about your ex-boyfriend? What a powerful ex-boyfriend he is!

If both of you were together and you broke up, how come you are having unprotected sex with him? Girl, you are careless.

Now you are thinking about school, his lack of education, his unambitious attitude and his inability to play the role of a father. Why didn't you think of all these things before?

Were you drunk when you were having unprotected sex with him?

I don't know what your doctor would say. But I can tell you that I cannot encourage you to have an abortion.
