    she chooses to force me into this situation.

I think what you need to come to terms with is that you weren’t raped. The only thing you are a victim of is circumstance, just like the rest of us. She’s making her own plans about being a single mother because she doesn’t want to force you into anything. You’re asking her to walk away from what she see’s as her future child as if it’s so simple... so why is it so hard for you to consider the same option for yourself ? You’re not being forced into fatherhood, but you don’t like what walking away says about you, right ? Maybe she doesn’t want to be forced to be a mother, but she also can’t come to terms with what an abortion says about her. Starting to understand her position now ?
