A Having a child is commonly considered a blessing, no matter the circumstances.
If you want to have the child it’s your body and your choice. No one should force you into doing something you don’t want to do.
Even if he isn’t prepared to be a responsible father, if you’re ready to be a mother, then you should not even consider his suggestion.
There are a lot of single mothers out there who have made it against all odds. You need courage to tell your parents about your situation and for them to give you their support.
