When a Guy Faces an Unplanned Pregnancy

For You From The Word

In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.
(Psalm 22:4)

For You To Think About

guy with head in handsThis year, there will be 3.1 million unplanned pregnancies in the U.S.

Every one of those babies has a father.

Guys who face an unplanned pregnancy have special concerns. If a guy tells you his partner is pregnant and he didn’t plan for her to be, here are some ways you can be a friend and address these particular needs:

  • The pregnancy. Have him make sure his partner is actually pregnant.
  • His paternity. Make sure he verifies that he is the father.
  • His partner. Encourage him to support his partner.
  • His child. Encourage him to take responsibility for his child.
  • His options. Explain his options thoroughly. Give him complete information.
  • His future. Point out the physical, emotional, and relational dangers of abortion – both to his partner and him.

When you support a guy who faces an unplanned pregnancy, you’re not only helping him. You’re also helping his partner … and his child.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Help me be a friend to a guy
who faces an unplanned pregnancy.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
