Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy and feeling pressure from your partner to abort? An unplanned pregnancy can be frightening, and you may feel overwhelmed.
Know that you are not alone! You deserve to feel secure and make the decision that is right for you.
How Are You Feeling?
It is normal to experience a variety of emotions when you find out you’re unexpectedly pregnant. Some women may feel shocked and overwhelmed, while others may be excited. It is important to remember that all of these emotions are valid. There is no right way to feel during this time!
It is crucial that you take the time needed to think about your pregnancy, your options, and how you’re feeling. For many women, this process may take a long time, but others may have made up their minds quickly.
It Is Your Decision
Sometimes, women may make a decision about their unplanned pregnancies based on how others feel. They may feel pressured by their partner to abort. However, you must remember that you are in control here. No one else gets to make this decision but you!
Speaking with a trusted professional about your pregnancy options may be helpful. Talking to someone in a judgment-free zone will allow you to think clearly about your decision and seek support in a caring, compassionate environment.
If your partner is pressuring you to have an abortion, it is critical to lean on the people who will listen to you, no matter what. These could include a trusted friend, family member, or clergyman.
If you are feeling pressured, it is key that you think about what you want. How do you feel about abortion? Have you ever considered adoption or parenting? Which choices do you need information about? Answering these questions will allow you to approach your unplanned pregnancy with a clear mind and a greater understanding of what might be best for you.
