1. Edward was willing to let Bella have Jacob’s child to save her life. In your opinion was this a reasonable offer?
I found it disgusting. I may not really believe in religion, but there are some morals that have stuck because of being a part of the Catholic school system for a few years and just how I was raised, and one of those things is not to have intercourse with someone other than the one you are commited to. Bella may have loved Jake in a more romantic way at one point, but she chose and was married to Edward, and him willingly letting Jake get busy with his wife disturbs me on so many levels. Neither of them took into consideration what Bella had wanted when it came to having a child because both wanted what they could get out of it.
2. What do you think it would have done to his relationship with Bella if she had accepted this offer? What other relationships would be affected?
It would have forced both boys to deal with the fact that Bella was carrying another man's child if she had accepted Edward's idea. Edward would have to deal with Jake being in their lives until the child died, and vise versa. The child would have become a wolf with being around vampires; and since we don't know when the shifting gene kicks in, this idea would be rather dangerous for the small child. Not only would the relationships between the three of them have changed, but that of the entire Cullen family and the La Push pack. Both would have to be careful around the child if the gene didn't kick in too early. I also think that Charlie relationship between his son in law, daughter and his grandchild's father would have been very different. How would they explain why Bella's carrying/having given birth to Jake's child. Plus it would raise questions as to why Bella and Edward were married in the first if she was going to sleep with another man.
3. What did you think of Bella's idea that she could be changed into a vampire right after the baby was born?
She took a big risk with that idea. There was a good enough chance that her heart gave out before Edward got the venom in her, she got lucky he even administered it into her heart first.
4. How did you feel about Sam's change of mind and determination to kill the unborn baby?
Understandable, to an extent. Fear of the unknown is what fueled the change of mind, IMO. He waited until it was clear that Bella was in danger of Laurent before attacking, and from going after him, he knew the red head was after Bella and wasted no time in going after her. He accepts that Bella knows her choice, and I assuming here, that he wasn't going to attack the Cullens because they knew she knew what she was chosing.
And again with the whole Religion thing here, I personally don't think that abortion or murder is right. It just goes against what I know, and I believe in. He may think that this child poses a threat, but so do all of the pack's furture off spring. Just take him and Emily as an example. He knew he could hurt her, and he did. There is a possibility that Quil may her Claire, and that was what this baby was. The fetus, IMO, took on the whole Quil/Claire saftey thing. Possibily dangerous, possibily not.
