You might feel a mix of emotions right now, and the pressure coming from your partner is not helping. It is important to remember that the final decision regarding your pregnancy is yours alone.  

Allow yourself the time and space from your partner to process your emotions before making such a life-changing pregnancy decision. We’re here for you.

Talk in a Safe Place

Abortion is not your only option for an unplanned pregnancy, and no one can force you into one. Every woman has three options, including abortion, adoption, and parenting. Talk safely at LaVie Pregnancy Care Center about your concerns without judgment or pressure.

If you are not sure about abortion, adoption could be an alternative option for you. It allows you to choose the adoptive parents and still remain in your child’s life if you desire to. We can provide referrals to reputable adoption agencies if you want to learn more about adoption.

Parenting is another option that can seem scary to some, but you may be surprised at the many community resources available to do parenting well. Our community resources offered through LaVie Pregnancy Care Center are here to support you in your journey with materials and services you may not be able to find anywhere else. 

Alleviate the Pressure

First and foremost, if your partner is pressuring you into an abortion and you feel unsafe, contact the domestic abuse hotline for help.

If your partner is not violent, but you need to take some steps to get clarity, here are some ways to alleviate the pressure:

  • Set your boundaries by letting your partner know that, ultimately, this is your decision.
  • Learn about all your pregnancy options and alternatives to abortion.
  • Talk to a trusted friend, family member, or professional counselor freely and without pressure.
