well it depends on the circumstances.I once experienced a situation where a couple is looking for a male child and the wife got pregnant and the pregnancy was confirmed by there pastor to be  a girl.This made the husband to asked the wife to abort the pregnancy.This is all ignorance on there part,without knowing there are solutions to determine the sex of your children.visit this site for information http://www.multilinksdigest.blogspot.com.[/color][color=#006600]

I will ask him to sit down so that, we can discuss.

I will tell him that, this baby is a gift from God. Even though, it might be a mistake. But, God never makes a mistake in giving us a child.

Tell him that, I will NEVER have an abortion. Even though, money may be tight right now, but God that gave us this baby will make a way.

Also, this may be a test from God.

A lot of my friends who had surprises from God in terms of babies said, they were blessed tremendously after the birth of that child.

@Poster,

Pls do not abort cuz ur hubby said so. Remember d Judgement Day, u will be asked why u did it? You & not your hubby. If you don't agree, it will not take place.

Peace!

why didnt u protect urself by taking birth control pill untill ur ready to have another baby,i do undertsand that ur husband doesnt want to go into another baby issue when ur still nursing a 3 months old baby.u need to discuss this issue with ur husband ,it was unplan but it has happen,keeping the baby would be a normal thing a married couples do unless for medical reason then abortion can be applied.

if u can ur husband cant afford it since u already have a 3 months baby,i do understand his fear for asking u to abort but if both of u can afford a second baby and he still insist on u aborting then his upto something which is a bad signal and could affect ur marriage.

exactly!

and what happens if she gets pregnant 2 months after?

abort again?

when it's cheap to get a pack of condoms or insert an IUD

Our people can be very daft

How can people chop unprotected and "pray" not to be pregnant,worse still vacuum off the embryo

that's the definition of stupidity.

I agree with that. It just because he does not want another child, well ever heard of birth control or condoms or the morning after pill? Come on, the baby should not have to suffer. But as i said before, if the mothers life is in danger, then I would say go for it. But because you couldn't keep your pants zipped or find the condom on the nightstand in the heat of passion does not mean you have to kill your unborn. Abortion should never be another contraception choice. Its not. Prevention is always better than a cure.

a husband telling his wife to abort a pregnancy, is showing what he thinks of the marriage.

Am sure many of us here have heard of similar situations- I personally know of three, though one was the mother trying to abort her child because she was afraid she would be kicked out of school.

The three I know of, two did the abortion and one didnt. Of the three, two marriages survived while one didnt. don't need to expantiate on the characters of some of the men involved either. Womanizers to the core with out of wedlock kids too.

@ Okija: is abortion better than pregnancy prevention? Condoms and all that?

Ignorance is the best biological weapon ever! where is the poster can you at least say what the circumstance was, me I'd rather not bring a child to this world at all rather than bring him to suffer its just plain ludacris.

If the wife is having utopia pregrancy which means her life is at risk I think she can go ahead and abort it based on medical diagnosis

I may not agree with you on abortion but that's not the point here. I believe regarding that, it's a really sensitive issue and people feel so strongly about their point of view that its not really useful to go over whether its right or wrong. Everyone is entitled to their opinion in that sense. My point is I am concerned about the message you're giving about contraceptives. Millions and millions of women who use them find them quite effective. Actually apart from the pill and condoms, methods recommended for married people like implants, injections and especially the IUD are usually VERY effective because they eliminate consumer error. Maybe it's not what you mean, but it really comes across like you're saying contraceptives are not that effective and are risky and soooo many women who should really be using them are not because they have these misconceptions that are usually more fiction than fact. And just by the way, complications are more likely to occur from an abortion in naij (because of legal and social stigma issues with obtaining an abortion (if not for life-saving purposes) which means you have to be willing to PAY well in naij to get it done right meaning most women don't get it done right or if they do get it done right, they don't go for required follow up) than they are from contraceptive use (IUD has a failure rate of less than 1%) and the complications if they occur are obviously more serious in the case of abortion than they are with contraceptives.

@ Tatatse

Why don’t you take a look at my previous posts? I said Abortion is not such a bad thing . . . . if the reason is right. I never suggested using abortion as a means of contraceptive and I certainly didn’t say I’m not okay with contraceptives.

Someone said that the couple should have prevented the pregnancy using contraceptives if they didn’t want a child and abortion is not an option. That I object to!!!

No contraceptive is 100% effective and I’m glad you admitted to cases of complications however rare they might be. Just because they made a mistake with the contraceptive doesn’t mean they should have the baby.

I support abortion in cases of molest, risk to the mother, financial instability and genotypic misfortune. I’ll rather abort a foetus that deliver an SS.

As for risks, everything has a risk when done improperly. Abortions can be risky if it’s carried out by the wrong person in the wrong way . . . and the case is the same with contraceptives!!!!

I think this is a very irresponsible message for an enlightened person to be putting out in 2008 about FP. I'm sorry but that is absolutely ridiculous. Like how can you be ok with abortion but not with contraceptives? How many abortions should a woman have before she does the necessary. I'm not saying that everyone should believe in using contraceptives but if you're not then be prepared to be pregnant and that's fine. What's not fine is like saying "Oh i can always have an abortion if I get pregnant because it's even less harsh on the body than contraceptives." That's bogus!

Many modern contraceptives are nearly 100% effective.  They're as effective as you can get. If you want to be responsible or if you've not discussed having another kid with your partner, you use them. Please. The ones that people tend to cite as not being effective are condoms (which are usually are ineffective as a result of inadequate or improper use) and the contraceptive pill (which is usually ineffective because the person missed days or was ill). Most methods recommended for married people who don't want to have any more children used in Nigeria are actually quite effective e.g. the Injectables, the IUD and Implants. I did my work experience for undergraduate at a primary health center in a periurban area in naij and the women there definitely knew to come for their injection or to come for their IUD to prevent pregnancy and space their children. Yes in there can be complications but it is rare that they are so serious or that they last a long time and they are not that common and certainly not as bad as abortion. You can't compare abortion to contraceptives. Depending on the age of the pregnancy, it can be a serious procedure and can have way worse complications than contraceptives even when they are legal and done in a hospital so thank you, but it's a bigger deal than contraceptives. An abortion is NOT better than the prevention of using contraceptives which is why you're supposed to get contraceptive counseling at your post-abortion care session.

These so called contraceptives and family planning methods are not 100% effective. There could be mistakes and as far as I can tell, the side effects of abortion is not as bad as that of some of these contraceptives.

Possibly for a medical reason? If i had to choose between my wife having a baby and possibly suffering complications and an abortion i'd choose to abort.

I dont think abortion is such a bad thing and a husdand should not be crucified for asking for that if its for a just cause. Of course no husband would tell his wife to get rid of a pregnancy just for the fun of it.

Why did he ask for the abortion, thats the question.

i don't support abortion

there are adverts on billboards, tv, newspapers and all other media to practise safe sex.

always use a condom (very important)

after the birth of your first child, start family planning (various methods available)

use contraceptives-a woman has 24hrs after (unprotected) sex to make up her mind if she want to be pregnant or not.

abortion is not good and the side effects if not done properly are damaging and life threatening.

Dude/dudette

Lack of abortion is the reason for the many kids on the streets begging.

Lack of abortion can be indirectly linked to the high rate of crime in the society.

Lack of abortion can be directly linked to the high number of unskilled labour in the country.

The list is endless. Why bring a child into this world you know you do not have the means to cater for??

Why bring a child into the world to suffer.

Gaddamit the land is crying under the weight of the many unproductive children walikng the streets today.

I support abortion to the fullest as long as it is carried out by qualified doctors/surgeons in good hospital.

When carried out for the right reasons abortion is allowed.

WTF are all these women saying??

Examples;

1. poo happens and you get Molested, now you are pregnant. He asks for an abortion now that it can be carried out safely with no harm to you. Does that mean he does not love you??

2. You already have 3 kids. The bills are already a big burden. Money is tight, you have the mortgage to pay, utilities and other miscelleneous expenses. You get knocked up due to one night of unprotected sex. He is pleading with you to have an abortion so as not to drown himself with more responsibilities than he can handle at the moment. Does that mean he does not love you??

3. The dude is old. by the time the kid is 8, he will be retired and living on pension. You already 4 kids of both sexes in the the university or about to enter the university. He has planned his retirement and it does not include this kid. Does that mean he does not love you??

4. You are not strong enough to have this baby safely. Between you and the baby, he chooses you, and asks you to have an abortion. Would you do it??

Abortion is not necessarilly murder. the baby feels no pain whatsoever.

First find out why he wants to do with that. If you don't agree with abortion, explain to him why you don't feel you can morally and if its just that he doesn't want anymore children for financial/socioeconomic reasons, you guys can compromise on this one being your last and you guys can look into some long-term family planning like an IUD or the contraceptive pill or something. Number of children is a topic that should always be discussed before marrying or before you start having the children so that everyone is on the same page.

that will be the end of the marriage.

the man is an and sees his wife as a baby machine that can be inseminated, at will, not a human being with feelings.

If he tells you to abort his baby, tell him you've done so but go ahead and have the child.

However, consider your marriage as being on the rocks.

Tell his family members about it as well.

If your husband asks you to abort a pregnacy that he is responsible for that means he doesnt love you as a wife unless there is a reason behind that which must be under the advice of your doctor but apart from that, something is wrong somewhere.
