Though legally, you may not have the final say in your partner’s choice with pregnancy, your support for her is still needed. And it may go a long way within determining the outcome of her pregnancy, whether to keep or abort the baby. You should know that whatever outcome is reached eventually affects your life. If you are the father, you should show her love and affection during her pregnancy. When she needs someone to talk to, be there to listen. When she needs time to herself, give her all the time she needs. Be patient and ensure you support her every way you can. Show her that you genuinely care and will be there for her every step of the way. Also, be understanding about her situation and the difficulties she may be facing due to her new situation.

Collectively consult with trusted friends or counsellors in making the right decision instead of rushing into one. It would help if you took your time to reach an agreement on the matter and ensure that you carry each other along every step of the way.
