Hi there, sorry for what you are going through.
Is your ex still abusive to you? Has he gotten help for his anger? Personally I would never want to raise a child with an abusive man by my side, I'd rather do it alone. You have got to think about this. It is no longer just about you and what you want. Consider what effect this man will have on your child, what kind of father will he be? If you have any doubt about that then you have to find strength in yourself and stay with your family. Tell them and give them a chance to deal with the news and their reaction. The best place for your baby is a loving tranquil environment, he/she deserves that and as it's mother it is your responsibility to provide him/her with a safe and secure place to grow.
Good Luck, be strong
