Men are instinctively and by design meant to protect the life they helped to create. Consequently, the loss of their child, especially at the earliest stages of development, deeply wound a man’s inner most being and ultimately impact his relationships in painful ways throughout life. That’s why abortion is a man’s issue too. Real men support life, born and unborn. Real men stand by and support the mother of their child so together life affirming decisions for their child can be reached. There are many resources to help you navigate the challenges. Pregnancy resource centers are available to help and avoid the pain of regret and guilt abortion brings that often lasts a lifetime for both mother and father. Fatherhood may at times be unplanned, but when accepted, fatherhood will also impact your relationships throughout life, but in ways that are deeply enriching and profoundly rewarding.
