First child not a year old, and I'm pregnant again


October 19, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I am 20 years old. I am a mother of a nine-month-old baby and I am currently pregnant. I had my son in January.

His dad is in a well-paying job but doesn't really help me with him. He doesn't even spend time with him because he doesn't want his girlfriend or family members to know that he has another child.

I am not a fan of the court, so I haven't taken him there. I started to work when my son was two months old.

I got involved with someone at my workplace about two months after I started to work. He lives with his girlfriend. We have been intimate for months.

I like him and I know there is nothing more, but I am currently five weeks pregnant for him. I don't know what to do.

He takes care of his children financially, from my point of view, but I want my children to have a real father, not one who will only see them when his spouse is out of the way.

I don't know if I should keep this pregnancy or not. I didn't want to have two outside children, not even a year apart. The worse part of it is they are not for the same dad. I really need some professional advice.

P. C.

Dear P.C.,

I consider you a very careless young woman. You have a nine-month-old baby and you got involved with another at your workplace, and you didn't have the sense to protect yourself from getting pregnant.

You had unprotected sex. You don't love yourself and the way you live.

I don't encourage people to do abortions. I can only pray for you.
