Pregnency, out of faith and out of relationship.

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fateh!

I am a 25 year old Sikh male and recently an ex girlfriend of mine, who is Christian, informed me that she is pregnent with me being the father. Our break up was of mutual consent as we both considered the impact of our relationship on both our families; hers being traditional Catholics and my mother being Amrit Sanskar (sadly my father passed away 3 years ago).

Given this news, I am torn on how to proceed. It is still early enough to go ahead with termination but personally I dont believe I could live with myself I pressed ahead with that (I have read conflicting views online within Sikhism's view on the same?). I wont let her go through the situation alone either, after all it will be my child too. What scares me is losing my mother, who as a traditionalist, has always envisaged me marry within the religion.

Just a bit about myself; in my 25 years I have not been a practicing Sikh but have always felt an attachment to God. It's interesting though, my first avenue for advice on the above is within the Sikh community.

I appreciate you reading this far. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
