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.

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.”
