Do I have to tell the guy I had sex with if I choose to have an abortion? What rights does he have?

If a woman or girl chooses to have an abortion in the U.S., she is not required to tell or get permission from the partner she had sex with. Many do tell their partners, who might then go with them to offer support during the abortion procedure, but this is not something you have to do.

For guys, it’s really important to know that, ultimately, the woman is the one who will decide the outcome of the pregnancy. Legally, the right to decide whether to have an abortion or not ultimately belongs to the woman.
