Eight dads share how abortion shaped their lives
Dads aren’t often asked about abortion, so for Father’s Day, we asked. Here’s what some of them said about their personal experiences.

Eight dads are sharing how abortion has helped them become the fathers they are today, on what experts believe will likely be the last Father's Day before the Supreme Court issues a ruling that would overturn Roe v Wade.

In May, a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion on the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban indicated the Court is poised to overturn Roe v Wade, the 1971 Supreme Court decision that established the constitutional right to abortion care.

The draft is not a formal decision and the court has not ruled on the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban. Abortion is still legal in all 50 states.

Most pregnant people who have abortions already have at least one child, according to CDC data.

And while 85% of people who have abortions are not married, according to data from the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research organization, nearly half had been in a relationship for a year or more with the person who impregnated them.

Before Father's Day, TODAY Parents spoke to eight dads who responded to a call-out on social media asking fathers to share how abortion shaped their lives. The men were given permission from their current partners to disclose their abortions and other personal medical information. Their last names have been withheld to protect their families’ privacy, and their comments have been edited for brevity and clarity.
