Legally, only you can decide the best choice for your pregnancy. Only you can choose the outcome if your partner is unsupportive of your decision.
According to a study by the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, almost 75% of women who had an abortion felt at least partially pressured into making the decision. However, you should know that It’s illegal for anyone to coerce you into having an abortion.
If you are feeling pressure from your partner about your decision, contact Pregnancy Options Miami for a no-cost, confidential appointment with one of our trained counselors, where you can ask questions, get connected to local resources, and learn more about your options.
If your partner is pressuring you to have an abortion, there are action steps you can take to ensure that you’re making your own decision.
If your partner is not supportive of your pregnancy, the best thing you can do is be confident in your decision. The only way this is possible is for you to have the knowledge you need to be fully informed.
You have options.
Parenting is a viable option if you want to carry your pregnancy to term.
If you are still in school or don’t feel equipped to raise a child due to financial constraints, that’s perfectly understandable. However, many women with unplanned pregnancies who have chosen parenthood have found it a gratifying path.
At Pregnancy Options Miami, we are here to help you feel confident in your decision, but our support does not end here. We are here to help you navigate this season and post-pregnancy. If you are interested in parenting, we can also help connect you with community resources to help prepare and aid you on a parenting journey.
Did you know that there are a range of adoption options? You can choose the adoptive family and how little or much information they receive about you.
Making an adoption plan and staying in contact with the adoptive family is how most adoptions are done in the US. Many women enjoy maintaining contact with their children, but this is up to you and what works for your unique situation.
This option involves terminating your pregnancy. If your partner is pressuring you to have an abortion, they may not be fully aware of each option themselves.
When considering an option, it’s helpful to evaluate the short-term medical side effects but also consider the mental health risks that can be more long-term.
Researching these details and more can give you more confidence and help you explain your choice to your partner.
Is your partner making threats or making you feel physically unsafe because of your pregnancy decision? If so, these are signs of an abusive relationship.
If you feel immediate danger, contact 911. If you want assistance in escaping this relationship, call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline to help find resources that will help you relocate to a stable and safe place.
