Re: child abuse, depends a ton on where she resides. Get some legal advice ASAP.

I agree with the other advice. Saying something along the lines of "my choices are mine. I do appreciate respectful advice. But, threats and intolerance are not acceptable and I won't have anyone in my life who chooses that route."

I stopped talking to my mom for several years when she wasn't being very helpful in some difficulties I was going through. Sometimes that's what is required for people to get beyond their own hang-ups to put more value on the relationship than moralizing.
