I have a hypothetical question for you. I’m pro-choice, my boyfriend is pro-life (he comes from a fairly conservative, religious family). We recently had a close call with a broken condom (thankfully I didn’t get pregnant) but we started talking about what we’d do and he said, without hesitation, that we’d get married and have it. In my head, I was like woah, woah, woah, slow down there buddy. We’re young (early 20s), I don’t have a decent career yet, I don’t want to get married yet, I’m not even sure I’d want to marry him down the road. I would definitely want to have an abortion. So I was thinking, what if, heaven forbid, I did accidentally get pregnant? I think he would freak the f*#$ out. Since it’s my body, and I have a right to privacy, would it be ok ethically if I had an abortion and didn’t tell him? Because I think we’d definitely break up over it. And while I don’t want to marry him right now, I definitely don’t want to break up.
