One in every 5 men may be silently suffering in the aftermath of a partner’s abortion , and the liberal feminist movement makes it worse.
More than half of men who have been affected by abortion seek psychological support afterward. Most don’t know what to look for, and few find it when they do, according to a new study from the nonpartisan organization Support After Abortion.

The repeal of Roe v. Wade has shifted the discourse on abortion into a new phase, ranging from availability and legality to ethics and safety, as well as states’ and women’s “rights.”
But as the policy and legal debates have changed, what has stayed the same is the framing of abortion as an exclusively female issue. Whether the procedure was mutually desired and agreed upon or not, a man’s perspective on an unplanned pregnancy is too often the last heard, or outright dismissed as irrelevant. Some feminists would see that as a good thing, but this one does not, and neither should Christians.

In recent decades, the conversation surrounding abortion has primarily surrounded women and as a result of societal expectations, men might be less likely to express their true feelings about an unplanned pregnancy or abortion, but research shows they have strong emotions regarding that choice.
A national men’s abortion study commissioned by Support After Abortion (SAA), a nonprofit focused on after-abortion healing research and education, found that the majority of men who experience abortion loss also experience some kind of negative impact on their lives including depression, anxiety and anger, but because of societal pressure, their voices have been “stifled” and their grief is “often disenfranchised.”

When it comes to abortion, men are usually told to mind their own business. Not their body, not their choice, says the progressive left (unless the men are there to march in support of abortion, of course.)

This piece was originally published by Newsweek.
In the 10 months since the Supreme Court‘s Dobbs v. Jackson decision overturned Roe v. Wade, perhaps the only point of bipartisan agreement on abortion has been that men must take more responsibility for their children. For example, after Dobbs, abortion advocate and filmmaker Ken Olin told his 280,000 Twitter followers that men should be “financially on the hook from the moment of conception.” His replies quickly filled up with conservative pundits voicing their agreement and a few months later, Republican lawmakers, including Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), introduced a bill that would require such financial obligations.
It’s important that our culture and laws support pregnant women and their children, including by holding disengaged fathers accountable. But it’s also important that we recognize other men in the abortion conversation: men whose opportunity to take responsibility for their children was ended by abortion and men whose support for an abortion left them dealing with regret, shame, and other lasting effects.
