After suffering one miscarriage shortly after she was married, she was unable to conceive again and rather than despair, she remained strong and choked it down to “everything has a reason.” As a loving wife, she became content as a step-mom to her husband’s children from an earlier marriage.

But on her 35th birthday, her period was late and when she tested, she found that she was positive! You can imagine how elated she was that after all these years, she was finally pregnant again! But when she shared the great news with her step-daughter, her answer broke her down to tears.

You should just get an abortion because this whole thing is f*****g weird.

When her husband put his arms around her after hearing of the altercation, he told her, “Maybe we should consider it (abortion).” Sharing her pain and seeking advice from other people on the social platform, the woman revealed that after her husband's reply, she got heated up, told him off, and left for her parent’s house.

People empathized with her plight and felt sorry

People that read her heartbreaking post were shocked and they sympathized with her awful situation. Most of them urged her to keep her child despite her family’s insensitive attitude and selfish interests.

One user said, “When your SO calls - and he will - lay it on the line. He has a choice - be supportive of your pregnancy and YOUR future family.” They explained that she should let her husband know that she’s ready to leave if he won't support her decision.

Another person pointed out that having her baby is her own decision. “That baby growing inside you is yours. YOU are their protector, their guardian, their source of life… DONT let anyone tell you what is best for your baby.”

Others even felt that she should consider leaving the family for good as they didn’t have her best interests at heart. “Oh honey, I’m so sorry. But if I were you I’d throw away that entire man and his whole family.”

A woman should never have to go through what she did and her family’s response was proof that a lack of sensitization on fertility and its impacts on the psychosocial well-being of women can be devastating. After hearing her pitiful story, what would be your advice for this pregnant mom?
