From an aborted father:
“One evening she told me in two simple words, “It’s done.” Despite the fact that I would have raised the child with or without her, I couldn’t choose to be a father. I don’t think a single day has passed where I’ve prayed and I’ve cried about it, but nothing is going to change. The one thing that I thought would become the greatest joy in life has become the greatest pain. It hurts more than words could ever describe. I feel empty – as if a part of me is missing. And I felt helpless – because there was nothing I could do about it – because she went and had the abortion without me, even knowing that I wanted to be there for this child.”

In an article in Time Magazine, a Planned Parenthood official sums up the views of the organization on men and abortion:
“But it doesn’t matter how much men scream and holler that they are being left out [of the abortion decision]. There are some things that they are never going to be able to experience fully. I say, tough luck.”
Louise Taylor, Vice president of Medical Affairs at Planned Parenthood.
