We've been having safe sex for a long time. I'm 16-turning-17 and my boyfriend is 18. He knocked me up. I wanted to abort it because I'm still in this IB diploma and have a whole future waiting for me-my scores are high enough to get me into Oxbridge/ Ivy leaguesL I was looking forward to university but here comes to baby.
It's been my tummy for about three months now. My parents still don't know-they'll kill me if they do cuz they're super conservative. I told my boyfriend I wanna abort it but the other day he just propose to me and said he'll take care of me and the baby-he'll be studying in Harvard this fall, he even said he arranged an apartment which is near his uni so we can meet up frequently, he even said he'll give up his dorm life if I want to live with him. I still haven't say yes to the proposal but it's very sweet and darling given my boyfriend is more playful/unpredictable before he knew I have his baby.
Anyhow, I don't know how my life will turn out. I love my boyfriend so much and what's worse is I know he loves me lot more than I do. We've been together since high school, he's always this amiable guy who's nice and funny to everyone, always fun-loving and adventurous and he's so soft and sweet to me. One thing I regretted a lot was I cheated on him, we broke up for like three months and I had a fling with this other guy but then my boyfriend had a fight with this other dude and I got back with him somehow. And we've been very happy and maintaining a very healthy relationship since then. He kept telling me fantasies of if the baby's a dude he'll teach him how to make films and make him to next Steven Speilburg and if she's a girl she'll be the next Kate Upton. Now in the summer he's been doing internships everywhere and earning about 5000 a month. Which is pretty decent. I love him to bits but one thing I'm really scared is I really don't know how this baby would change my life. If I abort it though, somehoI'm scared he'll break up with me.

Keep the baby. Murder of an unborn child is not justifiable... Especially not when based on a mistake of your own. I'm sorry, I know you've got a supposedly bright future ahead of you planned, but you need to take responsibility for your actions... Let this be your first act of motherhood- putting the child before yourself.
Anyway, the emotional damage caused by abortion just isn't worth any university entrance and qualification. You've also got a decent man friend on your side, too many guys would've run by now, but he didn't. Although he might have some relatively unrealistic hopes and dreams, it's a start.
If all that doesn't convince you, then I'd also suggest giving it up for adoption. Whatever you do- don't kill the child.8
