RESOURCES FOR MEN
If you suspect that your girlfriend is already pregnant, we want you to know that the Women’s Pregnancy Center has a wealth of resources and information that specifically address your needs as a man. We can provide you with accurate information and practical support regarding issues such as:
- Pregnancy options
- Rights and responsibilities of fathers
- How to become an effective father
- Establishing paternity
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- How to support the baby’s mother
- Continuing your education
Condoms and other birth control methods can fail and cannot guarantee that your girlfriend will not become pregnant. There are some questions a guy needs to ask himself before becoming sexually active.
- If your girlfriend became pregnant would you leave her?
- Are you ready to support a child with your time, energy and money for at least the next 18 years?
- Will you go with your girlfriend to tell her parents the news?
- Are you willing to give your child a two-parent family?
- Know that you have no legal say in the choice your girlfriend makes with the baby. She may decide to keep the baby or to have an abortion…in either case are you prepared to live with that decision for the rest of your life?
- Would you be willing to release your child for an adoption?
- Are you willing to learn all about abortion so that you can anticipate possible medical complications and possible relationship problems?
The decisions you make today will affect you for the rest of your life.
