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

If you choose to have an abortion in the U.S., you are not required to tell or get permission from the partner you had sex with. Many people do tell their partners, who might then go with them to offer support the day of the abortion, but this is not something you have to do.

For partners with penises, it’s really important to know that, ultimately, the pregnant person 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 them.
