pregnant woman who does not want an abortion

No one can legally coerce you into having an abortion. Feeling pressured to abort can be a risk factor for mental health problems afterward, so it’s crucial that you maintain firm boundaries and seek help if your partner is trying to force you into this decision.

If you and your partner disagree on the best pregnancy decision, keep reading to help navigate the situation.

Evaluate the Situation

In evaluating the situation, it’s essential to ask yourself key questions:

  • Is my partner committed to abortion without considering other options?
  • Are there signs of abusive behavior, such as threats?
  • Does he have a support system to discuss this with?
  • Am I willing to continue the pregnancy without his support?

If this is just his initial reaction, try giving your partner time to process the news since his desire for an abortion may stem from fear or anxiety. If there is any hint of ill intent, prioritize your safety and take precautions, such as only meeting him in public or with a trusted third party present.

At Hope First, we also offer a safe, judgment-free space where you can both come for a free consultation to explore what each option looks like: abortion, adoption, or parenting.
