So I got a message from my ex the other day. Here's the general idea lads:
>Not mine so it's cool
>She's planning to kill it anyway
>I begin to refer to it as Bort for abortion
>It begins to dawn on me that Bort will fulfill his purpose and get aborted this week
>Become strangely attached to this doomed embryo (probably because like him, I too was let go at the last minute)
>We begin the 'Save Bort' movement.
So, /adv/, how should I rescue Bort before he dissolves from existence?
Don't. You're only invested in this because you picked out a dumb name for it. You'll get bored of it and she'll be left with an unwanted child and all the responsibilities and financial drains that a child entails.
One day it could be a living breathing unique mind, a mind that is unrepeatable. You can have some influence here. I feel for Bort too. It makes me think of bizarro Bart Simpson. Talk to her. Sway her with emotions. Women love emotions. Tell her how she is killing a potential human being like herself. How you wouldn't ever have existed if not for a last minute decision. Save Bort! Cold blooded abortion always seemed to be pushed by utter narcissists who lack empathy to me. Sure sometimes if you are completely unable to raise it or were raped, etc., it might be justifiable. But not just on a whim. Be responsible.
Is carrying this child to term going put her at a severe health risk(family history and body type have a lot to do here)?
Is she in a good position to raise a child?
Are you planning to try to get back with her and help raise him or her(do you know yet? A lot of women will change their mind the first time they see an ultrasound)?
Would you be willing and able to raise the child yourself if it came to that?
Do you know or can you find someone willing to adopt?
These are some questions you need to be able to answer before you seriously discuss this with her. Good luck sir.
