Do I have to tell my partner I want an abortion?

Your relationship during an unexpected pregnancy can seem complicated. You are probably experiencing lots of different emotions and many difficult decisions. You are not alone as you decide what’s next.

If you’re considering whether to tell your partner that you want an abortion, we always recommend being open and honest about your pregnancy journey with your partner. It’s important to remember that your partner will be affected by your pregnancy decision.

Put Your Safety First

While we don’t know your situation, you may be concerned with your partner. If you have any doubts about the way your partner will respond due to safety concerns, you are not obligated to share this process with your partner. 

Putting your safety first is important. If you ever feel unsafe, call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline right away. A representative can help you with the resources you need to find safety. 

Sharing Your Thoughts

Sharing your thoughts about your pregnancy and abortion can be challenging, especially if you already know he might not agree. It’s important to let your partner weigh in after you’ve shared with him. Do your best to listen and work through your concerns with one another. 

This decision will affect both of your lives drastically. If needed, talk to someone outside of your relationship to help guide you through decision-making. What matters most is that you try to do it together.
