Oh Mary (((((((hugs)))))))
I had a nasty feeling this might happen. I knew her husband was stressed out. All you can do in this situation is guide her to make the right decision for her..from the heart. Remind her that she cannot live her life for anyone but herself. Even the man she loves. This is such a big issue. I pray she makes the decision that is best for her. People can cope with unexpected little ones..they just have to make a few sacrifices. Mary, I wouldn't keep my mouth shut on this one (that is my honest opinion)
Again, hugs, know we love and support you
Good Morning and I am sorry this has happened I agree with Meg, support your daughter and remind her it is her body and her child, do not let anyone else tell her to go against her believes and principals.
She wants this baby and being persuaded by her husband to get an abortion is not fair or just to her.
You have my prayers.

Just letting you know I am thinking of you, your daughter and your good self are in my prayers and I will continue to worry about you. Know we will support whatever decision you make. Just be sure you don't have any regrets IMHO you have to say your piece, and then make peace with what happens.
Love and gentle hugs,
I sympathize with your plight, however, I feel for the forum this discussion over whether or not your daughter should have an abortion may trigger other members. I am going to ask that you accept our support and please seek the help of your therapist in dealing with this topic.
I feel we may be pushing Rule 10. No posts of an overtly political or religious nature OR posts promoting advocacy of particular personal, medical, legal, religious, political, or non-profit causes.
I truly hope you understand my reason for this request.
Thank you so much
I really am proud of the support you have been given
I ask only that this not
be made into ppl's choices and arguments or political reasons for non abortion as then it would not be according to the rules
**I AM NOT saying anyone has broken a rule at all I am just asking that we keep this as a support and caring thread
to help sweet Mary and her daughter in this time
YOU all are the best and I thank you for your understanding...........
Thoughts and prayers are with you
Mary, please don't apologise or feel guilt, you are suffering enough already honey. All that our lovely smart mods (thanks kitt, lyn ) are saying is that we should not be turning this into a anti or pro discussion but keep it as a supportive place for you to be. In my replies I only asked that you speak your mind and help your daughter make the decision that is right for her.
I am someone who should know better
I did not advise for or against the abortion I just asked you not to stay quiet about your feelings as a mother and grandmother if it was going to cause you distress and regret. It is me who should be apologising for not making that clearer. I apologise to one and all. Kitt is right, this is a place for support, not strong opinion.
Mary my thoughts are still with you. The decision is out of your hands but you did what YOU needed to do to make peace with yourself.
Hello all my wonderful friends.........and dear Mary,
We are here to support you and to offer you our love. We understand your distress and anxiety so please do not feel you need to apologize.
