You cannot stop someone from getting an abortion. The laws in our country are very clear that the right to terminate a pregnancy is solely a woman's choice. If the mother chooses to have the child, then your son will have rights, until then the woman has the right to choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy.

Legally your son cannot prevent her from exercising her constitutional right to obtain an abortion. If she decides to keep the child, he can initiate a paternity case to be determined the child's legal father and to obtain specific parenting responsibilities.

Current constitutional law accords no rights to a spouse of a man who wants an abortion. An unmarried man has even less call to assert dominion over his pregnant girlfriend. I suggest you contact the local Catholic Archdiocese for information and aid. This may yet be a legal issue, but it starts as a moral one.
