If you found out you were pregnant today...

I would be scared, and confused since I'm on an IUD. I guess if i found out i was pregnant i wouldn't have that many options. I would go to my OBGYN, they would probably have to take out the IUD since it is dangerous to let a fetus grow in your uterus with the IUD. Removal of the IUD would pretty much cause the embryo to be aborted too. In some cases if the woman is against abortion they can choose to go through with letting the pregnancy continue with much monitoring but it could hurt the fetus or the woman. It's a hard situation with the IUD. But thankfully that doesn't happen that often. I suppose if i were to get pregnant while not on an IUD and instead on the pill or with just a condom i guess i would talk it over with my significant other, we aren't in a situation to really comfortably afford a child. My parents have the means to help in some ways financially, they would be really angry with me but everyone in my family would be really supportive.

I think it's horrible that stable, loving families are denied the ability to adopt because they don't meet some crazy criteria. As for me, I wasn't trying to shame people who were choosing abortion, even though my philosophical and bio-ethical beliefs tell me that abortion is wrong. I just think more people should be open-minded about considering adoption, and I tend to be stunned that people barely even seem to realize it is an option. Especially when they say their reasons for abortion are financial, or that they wouldn't be able to care properly for a child. I also think adoption in this country needs a major overhaul, with stable families from all different stripes being completely acceptable. Stability should be the major determining factor, whatever religion and whatever combination of parents.

My parents tried to adopt several times during their long struggle with infertility, only for something to always go wrong. The woman decided to keep her child or place it with a younger couple, or had an objection to a military family, or whatever. They weren't even able to foster for a long time. When they finally were able to foster, they had three children of their own, though they continued lavishing love and attention on the foster kids.

While it would be a hard addition to my current life, I have always wanted to be a mother above all things, and my partner also would love to be a father. So I would be over the moon.

I would be terrified, considering I've never had sex with anyone with a penis... which means I was probably raped without my knowledge. The idea of that in itself is pretty disconcerting.

In terms of what I'd do with the child... I'd probably give it up for adoption. However, if I caught it super early, I'd abort, since I couldn't afford pre-natal care at this point in my life and suffer from depression already. I'd have some serious trouble handling a pregnancy.

I would be freaking out, and I'd probably seek an abortion. I plan to be going to graduate school in about a year, and that is definitely not a good time to be dealing with an infant. I don't want kids to begin with, either. I'd also be a bit confused and angry, as I have an IUD with pretty much the highest success rate of any form of birth control apart from surgical options or abstinence.

If I did not want a child I would make sure I would not get pregnant..I absolutely do not believe in abortion (hold on before I get hate mail about it is my body my choice) TO EACH HIS/HER OWN this is just my opinion Since I cannot have children anymore it would take a miracle for me to get pregnant. I do however support a woman's right to make the choice herself. It is just not a choice I would make. Does that make any sense?

I never want a child. I'd be upset, and worried/anxious over finances/possible guilt, and I'd get an abortion immediately.

I would flip out. I am trying *very* actively to avoid having kids, I would be so upset if all those measures failed me.

I don't want no babies!!!! I am a college student and plan to go on to get my PhD. It will be a very long time before I'm settled, have a career, and a house, and financial security. But even then I think about a child and how much time, money, and effort it would take. I would probably enjoy life without children later on down the road.

If I found out I was pregnant today I would abort. It would be a decision my boyfriend would agree with and support. I wish I could say I would keep the baby, give birth, and give the baby up for adoption but I couldn't do it.

I would be upset, worried, anxious and angry but I would most likely birth the child as I would feel terrible getting an abortion. I don't desire to have kids ever but if I do I would end up loving them to death.

I would be overwhelmed. My man and I aren't ready for a child. I don't know what I would do though, as in raise it, adoption or abortion.

One and done here so if I found out I would be angry at us and higher beings. We only want one and have our wonderful daughter. If we did get pregnant we would of course keep the baby but it would mean a completely different life for all 3 of us from what we have now. I love our life now and don't want that to change.

I don:t want a baby right now, but I would probably still keep it. I am in a stable realtionship but it would still be a bummer! But I:d get over it, things happen.

I would be upset and overwhelmed, and due to my illness during my last pregnancy, I think I would choose to terminate.

I don't know what I would do at this stage in my life. I have a child graduating this year and it would be a change that would take a lot of consideration. I would probably have the child and find some loving parents to adopt it.

If I found out I was pregnant today, I don't think I would be very happy...too much going on.

I'd get myself out of Texas and get a fucking abortion in a state whose government doesn't invade my private parts or try to take away my rights.

I would be very confused considering no sperm has come near me in years. If I ended up pregnant though I'd seek an abortion. I don't want biological children.

I'd be worried about gaining weight.

I wouldn't want to bring a child into this world with the situation I'm in at this moment, but I know somehow I would make it work. I'd be upset but happy at the same time. I would keep it because I know everything happens for a reason. I know it would be meant to be that way and I'll takeit as a blessing from god.

It would definately speed up my plans for the next year but regardless where I was or how i felt the only option would be keeping and being a mother to the child. 3 is just a bit daunting at the moment >.< But I have kind of been thinking about it.

I'm not in a place in my life where I could have a kid. Not financially or emotionally so I simply wouldn't feel comfortable bringing a child into my world.

If i found out that I was pregnant I would be VERY upset! Only because I just had my second son on 10/4/12 and DO NOT need another baby right now. However I am personally against abortion and would not want to give the baby up for adoption after having carried him/her for 9 months.

(Just so i dont get criticized for saying i am against abortion. Only because ive read some threads where someone voices their opinion and they get thrown under the bus for it.
I am pro choice. but for my personal beliefs for MY body I am against abortion.)

Upset, horrified, angry and completely out of sorts. I would definitely get an abortion. No kids for me.
