If you’re in a relationship and facing an unexpected pregnancy you probably feel overwhelmed and confused as you try to navigate this situation–and your relationship. It can feel even more overwhelming if your partner is pushing for an abortion but you’re not sure if that’s the right choice for you.
Understand Your Feelings
It’s important to remember that this is your body and your life, and only you can make the decision that’s best for you. Being concerned about how your partner may feel about your unexpected pregnancy is understandable, but ultimately this is not just a decision that affects your partner–it affects you, and your body.
An abortion is a serious procedure with physical and mental health consequences, and it’s important to make sure that you’re fully informed about your options and that you’re comfortable with the decision you make.
Know Who to Talk to
If you’re not sure what to do, you should talk to someone that you trust, like a close friend or family member. This person should be someone who won’t tell you what to do, but rather someone who can be a listening ear, help you process your feelings, walk through all the options available to you, and let you make the best decision for you. Whatever decision you make, it’s important to make sure that it’s one that you feel confident and comfortable with, and that you have people that will support you.
It’s also crucial to understand your legal rights, and that no one can force you to make a decision, or have a medical procedure done without your consent.
