Thoughts on abortion

Hello, It's been a week since I found out I was pregnant and confirmed in the polyclinic I went. An estimated prediction of pregnancy was 7 weeks. I had talks with the father of the child, he was actually happy about the whole pregnancy (he haven't think about the future yet, but was just happy that he could be a father). After a few days and confirmation of pregnancy, we had a talk about our future and also a referral to KKH for scans. I told him that if he did not want the baby, we should go ahead for abortion and not waste more money on scanning and all - which he did think and he also was given a few days to 'calculate' and think about our future. I was actually heading towards abortion because it was too sudden and we are not that ready both financially and because of our families (my family doesn't like him a lot and his mother don't like me at all) But because he was so happy earlier on when I broke the news, I was very invested in trying to ensure I take good care of my body for the pregnancy and maybe my thoughts changed for abortion. When he came back to me upon going through all the reflections and thinking, he told me maybe abortion would be a better choice for our situation. I was half happy because it was something I wanted but at the same time I cried alot at the choice he had also decided, it was maybe because I was so invested in this whole pregnancy I wanted to keep the baby - even though I am worried about the future. Please advice if it would be better to go for abortion instead of giving birth in this situation because I am torn on this.

You will never know if your baby is a blessing in disguise. Both of your parents may not like one of you but you will never know if the baby can soften their hearts. Money can be resolve. There are part time jobs like grab delivery etc for you to earn extra cash. Baby bonus will help with your financial in the mean time. I heard there will also be one-off $3k Baby Support Grant for those baby born in 1st Oct 2020 to 30th Sept 2022 due to the pandemic. Please do not abort if it is not regarding health issue. You should really think thoroughly. Poor baby.. Side story, my sister has been married for 10 years and they still hoping for a baby. I had a miscarriage on the 8th week last year Nov and the heart still ache thinking about it. You are blessed and I hope you will keep the baby♥️
