Maybe you are being encouraged to have her get an abortion. Some men are surprised that women can choose abortion without the permission of the baby’s father. Many people say that abortion is “a woman’s choice”, but the woman in an unexpected pregnancy rarely wants to make that choice alone. When women hear men say “It is up to you and I will support you no matter what”, they think the man want s them to abort. Many women who have had abortions report that they were waiting for their boyfriend or husband to “rush through the door to rescue me and take me somewhere safe”. The decision is heavy on your girlfriend but assure her that you stand beside her.
The Life Center Team of male Life Coaches is ready to assist you through this time and empower you to meet your future goals.

Sexual Risk Avoidance
The Life Center promotes a holistic, Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) approach that strongly promotes delaying sex as the best and healthiest choice. The Life Center Coaching Team is available to educate and equip students on goal-setting, healthy relationships, refusal skills, character building and the benefits of limitations of contraception in the context of promoting sexual delay as the healthiest choice.
The Life Center utilizes the resource of Choosing the Best curriculum to empower students in the local schools to engage in A Better Choice for goal-setting in healthy relationships. Choosing the Best states: “According to the Child Disease Control, the most reliable way to avoid the risk of an STD is to be abstinent until you enter into a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner. Since this type of relationship is typically found in marriage, Choosing the Best promotes the healthiest choice – delaying sex until marriage.”
