Skip to comments.My daughter's boyfriend put pressure on her to have an abortion
Posted on 08/30/2013 9:39:01 PM PDT by Pinkbell
My daughter has been with her boyfriend for four years. He comes from a large, tight-knit family from a diaspora community. Our family is small, although also from a foreign community. My daughter has a good job with good salary, supports herself and lives on her own. Her boyfriend has a degree and a postgraduate qualification, lives with his parents and works with his father.
His parents have never taken to my daughter, until recently behaving coldly and never asking her about herself. (These are her words; I have never met them.)
I liked her boyfriend when I first met him. I have always been welcoming. He is warm and friendly, although without much depth, and, it seemed, always putting his relatives before my daughter. I had reservations about him as a long-term prospect for her. I did discuss this and she assured me they complemented each other and she wanted to marry him and for him to be the father of her children.
Last Christmas, she hoped he would ask her to marry him. Then came the bombshell. She found she was pregnant. She told him and he immediately said he didn't want her to keep it and she should have an abortion. She was very upset, calling me in tears, saying that he was putting pressure on her. I rang and asked him not to, and he said they would decide together. I have never spoken to him again.
She eventually decided to have the abortion, although right up to the day she was in turmoil as to whether it was the right decision, particularly since she had had a termination at 16. She has told me his parents don't know about it. She had asked him to tell them, but as far as we know he hasn't.

Her mother writes this in, and we find this isn't the first abortion she's had done as she aborted at 16. Her mother is supportive of her abortions too. The only problem she has with her grandchild being aborted was that perhaps her daughter didn't want the abortion. As long as she did, it was ok with her.
My thought in these situations is why didn’t you take the baby?

We all have souls, unfortunately, some are seared and close to death.
I don’t know why women are so gullible...so inclined to follow a guy......and why stay with a guy for several yrs who apparently has no intention of making it serious....

That has been a mystery to me also. Are some women so blinded by “love” that they fail to see the reality?
The mother needs to realize that most men are all to willing to be cads. The sooner women realize that men are only as responsible as women make them to be in a relationship the sooner they’ll find a guy that will marry them. If her daughter would quit putting her feet in the the air for the guy he’d either marry her or leave. Either way the problem is solved.
It is simply that simple. If she wants the guy to commit to her stop mating with him until after she stands under a canopy with him.
The old saw applies here: “Why buy a cow when you get the milk for free?”
They all have souls.
What have you ever done to save any of them?
What the hell is she talking about? She accepts her daughter's decision to have the abortion, but can't accept the boyfriend's decision to abort the baby?

Have you looked at my personal page?
If my kids father/mother a child they are not having an abortion period. I'm taking that child..
What? As if she had the chance.
Why do you you think I should?
Again... what? Why do I expect Freepers to actually read the articles? Whwn will I learn?
What country do you live in that you can kidnap a grown woman and force her to carry a child to term?
Might give you some idea were my head is at concerning abortion.
