My girlfriend wants to have an abortion but I want her to keep the baby – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: THINGS were great with my girlfriend until she found out she was pregnant.

I spent two years chasing her and we have now been together for three months. I am 27, she is 24.

She has a four-year-old son by her ex and I have a five-year-old by mine. We all go out together at weekends and the boys get on very well.

Then my girlfriend discovered she is pregnant. She has booked a termination and I support her decision, even though I would rather keep the baby.

We have admitted we love each other but she has distanced herself from me, and I have asked her if she is having second thoughts about us.

DEIDRE SAYS: You sound considerate but your girlfriend is struggling, too.

Terminating a pregnancy is never a pain-free choice.

I imagine she is enduring an emotional tug of war, and it is her life which will be far more affected.

Tell her you understand, and be patient. My e-leaflet on Unplanned Pregnancy lists sources of support.
