You may be hesitant to share your potential pregnancy decision with your partner right now. Legally, you do not have to tell your partner to make a final decision.

While it’s not easy, we encourage you to stay as open and honest as possible throughout this process. Your partner will be impacted by your pregnancy decision in a significant way, just as you will.

 

Timing Is Important

If you haven’t shared the news of your pregnancy and the abortion option you are considering, remember timing matters. Picking the ideal timing is one important step to help the conversation feel less intimidating.

When planning this conversation, select a time when your partner is most relaxed, off work, and can have an unrushed, longer conversation.

Assess Your Current Relationship

Is your partner supportive when it comes to your pregnancy? Did he demonstrate that he wants to be involved in the process? What are his thoughts about abortion? These are just a couple of questions to ask yourself before approaching the hard conversation about considering abortion.

If your partner is already invested and committed, try to come to a mutual decision. Though it’s not required legally to share with your partner about your pregnancy decision, relationally, it could be best.
