That was the hardest decision of my life=abortion or not. This is hard for me to even talk about and alot of people will judge me but I will sahre my story.
I was full time college student back in '79. I, too, was using BC. I slept with a guy and we saw each other for a coupla months. I was way more into him than he was into me. The realtionship fizzled out and then I found out I was pregnant. It was very early in the pregnancy and I had an abortion, Everyone thought I was so strong but they did not know the how many nights I soaked my pillow in tears. I felt I made the right decision for ME at THAT TIME. I finished college, had a great career and married at 41 and had my beautiful daughter at age 43. I beleive that the decision to end the preg is only between you and God. I have thought of that child many times over the years and feel very conflicted still.\\
Your situation is very different , having a partner. His opinion has merit of course so it makes things more difficult. If you had the child, would you have a support system, a grandparent to watch the child while you work or go to school. Can you offer that child a decent stable environment? Do you have a plan?
If you really really want this child, you will find a way. But, this may sound cold but there are basic practical matters like money and a home that should be considered.
I do not have an answer for you. As karen said, that is something only you can decide. Perhaps talkking to a counselor would help. This is such a huge decision. I will keep you in my prayers and I am sure whatever decision you make will be the right one. If I had it to do over NOW, I would keep the child, but I have learned to be at peace and right with God about the road I took.
Many prayers for you-let us know
