Final words

Today, in his will, my dad laid the blame squarely at my feet for his depression, alcoholism, liver failure, suicide attempt and eventual death, not because of anything I did, just for being born in the first place. He never wanted a kid, resented becoming a dad and drank to make the depression bearable. FML

I don't want to sound heartless, but it really seems like your dad was a loser long before you were born, and is just blaming you for his own failures. Not all parents are deserving of love and respect, and it looks like your dad is a textbook example...

You know, this isn't really about that though.

What he said was horrible, but "blaming" him for her birth isn't much less horrible. He's obviously one person who should have simply been allowed to opt out of being a father, since he clearly wasn't a good one.

We have to get past the whole "keep it in your pants" or "keep your legs crossed" nonsense. These are normal human urges, and people often DO do things to try to prevent pregnancy, that happen to fail on a regular basis.

Why.. WHY would anyone say OP deserved this? No-one deserves to get treated like crap by their parent because they exist.
