No one should pressure you to have an abortion, including your partner. This is illegal, and you deserve to consider all your options. 

An unplanned pregnancy can invite outside opinions, but you have the right to make a pregnancy decision. Being firm about how loved ones can support you is key. 

Talking About Your Unplanned Pregnancy

Your partner may feel scared or nervous about your pregnancy. They may even react in anger if they’re worried about extra responsibilities or fearful of the future. 

But if you’re concerned about your safety, know that abusive behavior should never be tolerated. You can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline for 24/7 support or call 911 in an emergency. 

Determining Your Partner’s Role

Your partner may want to be involved in the pregnancy decision, or they could shy away from participating. Try discussing your partner’s preferences; you can encourage them to attend an options counseling appointment with you. 

At Life’s Choices Women’s Clinic, your partner can ask questions and share their concerns with a Male Advocate. Their questions will be addressed in a confidential, supportive environment. 

As you learn pregnancy details through a limited ultrasound and discuss your options, determine your partner’s role. This is your pregnancy decision, and their level of involvement is up to you.

If your partner is unsupportive of a pregnancy option like parenting, know that this is a reflection of their fears or concerns. 

And it doesn’t mean you won’t have support. We provide additional resources for parenting and adoption so you won’t move forward alone.
