Ever since the case of Roe v. Wade in 1973, abortion has been one of the most contentious issues in our society. Abortion of a child is a controversial topic with many viewpoints, pros and cons that never settle its ground. It’s like a never ending argument but which side should people really look into. Over 1.3 million abortions are done yearly in the United States. How would you feel if someone decided that you should never get a chance at life? Especially if the one deciding would be the one who has created you. Influence of a partner on abortion has lead to those millions of deaths to rise. How strong is the influence of one on another to commit such a strong decision for abortion?

They say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; they cannot afford a child; and don’t want to have problems with their husband or a partner.

Men- boyfriends, husbands, often hold a huge role as to whether or not their partner will commit an abortion. Men many times realize what they have done thus then try to persuade the partner to get rid of his “mistake”. Many times not ready to face such changes in life, men commit violent actions. In Florida, boyfriend tried to trick his girlfriend to take a pill which might result into baby fetus to die, because she wanted to keep the pregnancy. In Cleveland a man was accused of beating and starving girls until they miscarried. Many men resort to intimidation and violence to coerce women they've impregnated into aborting.
Women have all the rights to whether or not they want to keep the baby for 9 month with them or terminate them anywhere from less than 6 weeks of pregnancy up to 21 weeks or more. It is their right to do so. Their partners on the other hand, males, have absolutely no right to even to be notified prior to his wife or girlfriend obtaining an abortion, thus shouldn’t be able to influence as well. When women are pregnant, input of husbands or boyfriends should be little of importance as of whether or not she should keep...
