I had a girl friend in college and when having fun we made a "mistake" as most people would say and we wanted to terminate the mistake but something at the back of both our minds told us not to ,we had no money all we had we four very angry parents who wanted nothing to do with us,inspired by this "confidence" we matched on and five years down the line we are proud to have two lovely kids i.e. the "mistake" and his sister. Let me say that my first born is an angel of a son and he brightens my day everyday and I thank God that he made us not to do a terrible thing of eliminating the "mistake" which turned out to be a big blessing. One day I saw my father holding my son and I asked him why he had tears in his eyes and you know what he said?" I wish I had known then and I would have supported you, but now its too late" Yes it was too late because for two years he hadn't known his grandson and when he did,he has become his favorite grandchild and he doesn't hide it. There is a reason why you gave this story so please tell your friend to take heart and not to abort,who knows she maybe carrying our future president leave alone for the USA!
