I can’t believe this needs saying but: (cis) men, you have GOT to understand that, if someone you’ve had sex with gets pregnant, it is not up to you what happens to that pregnancy. You cannot compel someone to remain pregnant in the same way you cannot compel someone to end a pregnancy. Only the pregnant person gets to make that choice. You can discuss your preferences with them and hope they take that into account, sure, but, in the end, it is ENTIRELY their choice whether or not to get an abortion.

You are not entitled to that decision. You are not entitled to controlling a partner’s body. You are not entitled to anything regarding their reproduction.
