It’s for the sake of my unborn baby

Content Warning: Intense Emotionality, mentions of suicide

I got pregnant from my boyfriend. At first we thought we will abort it but then I wanted to keep the baby.

I came from a very conservative Muslim family. So keeping this baby means my family will clearly abandon me.  I started to think logically.. I was just 5 weeks pregnant. The baby doesn’t even have a heartbeat . If I bring this baby in this world the baby’s life will be a living hell. I can not provide him anything. Everyone will call him a bastard. Psychology, emotionally the baby will suffer more than me.

I don’t want my child to kill himself. It’s better to terminate now for the sake of a better future.
