Men are Affected by Abortion
Abortion decisions affect each partner uniquely and usually leads to an increase in relationship problems. If couples were together before the unplanned pregnancy, most break-up after an abortion. If couples do stay together after an abortion, grief, not healthy love, is often what keeps them attached. Sexual problems increase, and satisfaction decreases. When grief isn’t processed, both men and women are likely to report intimate partner violence.
Its common many men don’t know their sexual partner got pregnant and to find out later she had an abortion. He didn’t get a chance to offer support or be involved in the decision. Either way, men have the permission to talk through abortion experiences.
The Impact is Real. Think it through…
When she asks you if she should get an abortion and you remain silent, she will likely feel abandoned and assume you don’t care.
Even if you say “I support you whatever you decide,” can feel like pressure to abort because that response lacks support. An abortion decision is tough, but we can help you work through your next steps.
