HELP: He's back with his ex

By Faeza
22 July 2016

My boyfriend is now back with the mother of his child. This happened after I fell pregnant. He is no longer paying attention to me. I’m now thinking of abortion but he is threatening me if I do it.

The decision to have a child should never be about the other person. Can you

afford the child right now? Are you emotionally, socially and financially

ready to be a mother? Do you have the support system to raise a child?

If you answer ‘yes’ for these questions, start looking at the possibility of raising

your child alone. Clearly this is not a man who is going to be there for you and the child. No one can threaten you about your decisions to keep or abort a foetus. It is entirely up to you.
