Do I Have to Tell My Partner I Want an Abortion?

Knowing who to share your pregnancy decision with can be complicated. While no one can select an option for you, you may want to share your intentions with your partner.

If you have a good relationship with your partner, it might be wise to speak with them. And if you want an abortion, know that it is a major decision. Talking through this option with your partner can be helpful.

I Want an Abortion. Should I Share That News?

You aren’t obligated to share your pregnancy decision with others. You may not want to share with your partner that you want an abortion for various reasons. They could be abusive, you may be on bad terms, or there may be other circumstances that make you uncomfortable.

If you’re in a stable, committed relationship, talking about this pregnancy option with them can help you find clarity. You can listen to their concerns, share your perspective, and decide whether you need more information.

You may be considering abortion because you don’t feel your partner wishes to parent or be involved in a child’s life. Talking with them about parenting and adoption can help you learn their true feelings.

Your partner may be more interested in parenting than you expected or leaning toward adoption. Again, it’s your decision, but knowing their thoughts could determine what you feel capable of choosing.
