I hope she has the child. People need to man up when they make mistakes and make the best of them and not be cowards.

Man up and raise your child or at least support it with child support if it is yours. Last thing we need is another single mom on welfare. Abortion is murder, so I don't think killing your child should be an option.

When is a fetus considered a person???
in islam i've read passages that it occurs 40-120 days and that abortion is permissible up to that point. What does the scientific community and other religions say on the matter and would it impact the abortion debate in a significant manner. I could imagine that even if it was proven that a fetus was not a person until later stages of development that there would still many people who still felt it is murder.

Pull out all the stops (at least legal ones) to save your life.


If you follow this idiot's advice, you're paying 18 years of child support (or more).

Be a man.

Is that fair to the kid? Not being born is not the worst thing in the world.

I would recommend adoption. If your not ready for kids, and you attempt to raise them, your not being fair. Especially to the child.

Are you ready to raise the child with this girl?
Are you ready to put this child's interest above your own?
Are you financially ready to raise a child?

If not consider being selfless and putting this child in a position where it has a better chance to succeed.

You guys could get at least five grand for that kid if you're wiling. Split the profits.

It's a person if you're a right wing idiot who wants to control a woman's body.

OP needs to do the world a favor and get a vasectomy. Not only does he not want to have children, the rest of the world would be better off without those inferior genes tainting the pool as well.

That's not fair to the child. IMO if you have to tell a male to man up and be a good father, it is unlikely he will be a good father. Good fathers look forward to having kids and take steps necessary to prepare for it.

Keeping a baby you canít afford and/or arenít ready for is a formula for disaster. Get an abortion would be better, you don't have to carry a baby you don't want.
In adoption, the baby isn't guaranteed to go to a good family. Could be adopted by a terrible family, could be abused, the kid could spend his/her entire life feeling abandoned. There are so many kids already needing homes, why add to it?

Pro-life conservatives are embarrassing.


Stay out of peoples' lifes. .
