"Dear Pulse,

My name is Ibinabo and I am single mother of two kids, aged 14 and 12. I have a problem that I would want your readers to help me out before I make a wrong decision.

This issue has been tearing me apart and if I make a wrong choice, it could turn out to haunt me for life.

My first daughter, the 14-year-old girl was raped on her way back from a school lesson about two months ago and just last week, she fell sick and on taking her to the hospital and after a series of tests, it was discovered that she is pregnant for the rapist.

The doctor and many of my friends have advised I should abort the baby for her since it would be a bastard but my pastor has advised against it.

I don't want to do anything that would put a scar on my daughter's life or make her go through life with guilt. Even now, she is blaming herself while I also blame myself for not protecting her enough.

Can someone help me out there?


Port Harcourt."
