| when a friend asks you if they should have an abortion or not
the thing is she's in a shit relationship and they keep makeing up and breaking up all the time .... i told her she was stupid to get pregnant by him in the first place, but the baby is there now and she is so confused , what do i say or do?
realisticaly , it would be wise if she aborted , but if they get back together and she keeps the baby, i would feel so guilty looking at that babies eyes and thinking that i once told her to abort it !
what would y'all do!
PS: i have said i don't want to be involved , but she really is so so confused

|I once told a friend to abort her baby but it was only out of love and trying to watch out for her. In retrospect, I would do it all again. She's in a better position in life now and I'm doubtful that she would be where is now if she had had the baby. Besides, she was only trying to keep the baby to hold on to this dude she was fucking. They weren't in a real relationship. She was merely a jumpoff.|

|Dippy in your place I would just explain your reasonings to her and say no "yes" or "no". She got to decide herself.|

| Awww..Dippy so sorry you and your friend going through such trials of course for different reasons.
I had a friend going through that issue a while back. A group of us just decided to put our personal feelings aside, we first let her know that we support her regardless of what she decided. We then went on to help her to sort her feelings about herself, her life, and the baby. We made a list of pros and cons with her approval and acknowledgement. This process was about a week she eventually decided to go ahead with the abortion but it was important to us that it was her decision and we wouldn't judge her either way; we just wanted her to know that she was our friend and we loved her.
Hope this helps sweetie it's hard I know..((hugs))

|I wouldn't give my opinion one way or the other. I would let my friend make the decision ultimately on her own. From there whatever she chooses to do, I would make sure to be supportive of my friend.|
