My Partner Is Pressuring Me To Have an Abortion, but I’m Not Sure

A pregnancy decision will impact your future in a big way. More than anyone, you will be the most affected, so it’s important that you make the final call. While your partner’s insight matters, it’s never ok for your partner to pressure you into an abortion or any decision. 

Trust Your Doubts

Take a moment to settle your emotions and think. It can get loud and confusing with your partner’s voice in your mind. Trust your gut as you navigate this decision. 

If you already have doubts about abortion, trust your doubts and get the facts. Maybe you are leaning towards a different choice, but your partner doesn’t understand. Ultimately, the decision is up to you. 

Your Safety Is Important

If you feel in any way unsafe or pressured verbally or physically, get help right away. Your safety deserves to be protected. 

Contact the National Domestic Abuse Hotline, and a representative can assist you with resources that will help you find safety. You are not alone.
