Many women don't have any emotional reaction to having an abortion, except for relief.

And really, to talk about a "child's life" at this stage, when it is still a fetus, is unnecessary. The OP has said she is pro-choice and considering her choices. No need to lecture her about that. The topic at hand is really the situation with her marriage, coming clean about what's been going on, and the sad fact that she thinks a baby might fix a troubled or broken situation.

OP, having a baby won't fix your relationships - but working on them, therapy, honesty, etc., might.
