    My husband can't support me because he does not exist.

    I said Id want to raise the child myself, and I know my hubby would support me whether I choose #1 or #2, but if I had no other children I would waver between keeping and giving up for adoption.

    Since I have other, older children who would be able to tell Im pregnant and know whats going on, I do not believe Id choose adoption.

    We have never even discussed this. I thought to myself, I would raise the baby. Then thought I would still have to talk to my husband, So I gave him the poll and ask him what he thought. He said, "what would be the right thing to do?". I said keep the baby for me anyway, he agreed. That was easy, for us anyway. I'm with bapmom on this. I know adoption is an option but I personally could not let my child go to strangers.

    I asked my husband about this one tonight, too. He sort of surprised me in that he didn't even pause before saying he'd want to keep the child and raise it ourselves. Surprised me only a little, but touched me too.....because I think in many ways that's the HARD answer for the husband to give. Just imagine.........

    Why would anyone want to kill their own child? It doesn't matter how you got the child, it comes from your body, it's YOUR child. I could never kill my child, nor give it away, I'd trust God.

    Asked my husband,and he said exactly what I thought he would. Keep it and raise it, he said it would be as much his child as mine.

    I'm disappointed that christian women would choose the world's way and murder their child. To even think that murdering a child is ok is horrorable.

    Dittos to C4K. For the Left seeking to make abortion a women's issue, they're right, but not quite in the way they thought!

    Adoption would be an option. It wouldn't be the baby's fault for the fathers sin.
