If the "father" was clearly a horrible person who I had no desire to ever speak with again, ever, then I might not mention it.
But what am I doing sleeping with the dregs? Was I raped?
I'd tell the guy. You have to. Let him have a say in what happens, or believe that he does. Especially if he's a good person. Of course, if he were any good he wouldn't want me to have the abortion, in which case, that's a tough one right there...
I'd already 100% decided to do it, right?
Yeah, I don't know. That's a really bizarre hypothetical situation.

My body My rules.

Quoting mamaluvsher4babies:" wow..that made no sense at all. Of course its the mans fault. pffttt"
No it's both of their faults or neither if it was a bc failure. However in general you find that men more often place the burden of bc on women then the other way around. IMO both should take responsibility. Yes she told him to bang her without protection, but no one said he had to. He plays just as much responsibility as she does in that matter.

No but he doesn't really have right to be upset if he keeps having continual unprotected sex either.
No because I really have no desire to create a drama filled situation. I would not keep the fetal unit anyway, so there is no reason to bring it up.
I wouldn't tell. What would the point be? If he's okay with the abortion then fine but if he's not I wouldn't want him trying to change my mind.

I wouldn't. What good would it do him, why give him a chance to sway my emotions.
And if he's anti choice he'll think I'm murdering his baby and I'd want to spare him that misguided-but-authentic-to-him anguish.
No one in my Catholic, anti-choice family knows of mine, and it's been a lonely secret to keep but I did it for them as much as me.
