No. I have no question and will wait.
What more information do you need?
Is there a way for me to accomplish wait I want to do?
To provide more specific information... I had consensual sex with a woman who now claims I got her pregnant. She wants me to pay her $3,700 for the abortion, and for her discomfort. I feel badly that I may have gotten her pregnant, and want to pay, but she's also very sick, and angry, and not making much sense. I don't know whether she's actually pregnant or not. I offered to go to the abortion clinic with her, and pay for the abortion then, and she got real upset. She's threatening to carry the baby to term.
Yes. I understand that it's entirely her choice, and accept that. Her morning sickness sounds very convincing on the phone, but what do I know? I was thinking about trying to prepay the abortion clinic, but she won't even give me the clinic name. I asked her to go to Planned Parenthood, and she refused. If I give the clinic $700, then I could leave $3,000 with the lawyer. Any guess as to how much a lawyer might charge for this?
She'd probably never agree to it.
You have confirmed my thinking on the matter.
Thanks so much for your answer.
