The pressures of an unexpected pregnancy by itself can be a lot to handle. Having a partner who wants you to choose abortion only adds to the pressure valve. However, don’t let anything or anyone phase you. Remember, this is your pregnancy and your decision at the end of the day.

We’ll discuss what you can do if you feel your partner is pressuring you into an abortion.

First Step: Breathe & Process

First, take a moment to breathe and give yourself space to process your feelings and thoughts. It’s okay to feel conflicted, scared, or unsure. These are natural responses to a significant life event.

Seek out a neutral, supportive environment where you can explore your feelings without judgment or pressure. This could be with a trusted friend, family member, or a professional counselor who can provide confidential and non-directive support.

Next Step: Open A Dialogue With Your Partner

Communication with your partner is also important, but it should happen on your terms and in your own time. Express how you’re feeling and why the decision is challenging for you.

It’s possible that through open and honest dialogue, you can both gain a deeper understanding of each other’s perspectives. However, remember that the ultimate decision lies with you, as it’s your body and your life that are most affected.

Last Step: Look At Your Options

Understanding your pregnancy options—parenting, adoption, and abortion—empowers you to make the best decision for yourself.

Parenting may seem daunting, but with changing circumstances, what seems impossible now might become achievable. For instance, we provide free resources to support and empower you in your parenting journey.

Adoption is not giving up your child; it’s a generous choice that offers your child a promising future. You have control over choosing the adoptive family and the level of future communication. Explore these paths to make an informed, confident decision.
