A male friend told me years ago how he dealt with the situation. This was way back, fifteen years ago or so. At a bus stop, a guy was harassing a woman about my friend's age (early-mid 20s). Asking her name, asking for her number, all that. My friend saw she was uncomfortable, and so approached her. She gave him a look, like, "Oh, not another one."
He then said, "Hey, (made-up girl's name), it's Bob! Remember me, we met last week at Joe's party . . . " and then rambled on for a while. She caught on and started chatting, and the other guy rolled his eyes and shoved off.

Aren't the people who would object to having a gay kid the same people who hate abortion?

1 & 5: The sympathy here is for the victim, and the potential future victims. When the NRA is all about more guns, and that all law-abiding gun owners are responsible people, it's valuable to look at the flip side.
People make mistakes with guns, and kids die. We cannot deny that. So, what can we do to mitigate this?

A good couples counselor will also help end a relationship as gracefully as possible. He can figure out what caused him to act that way on his own time. As someone said above--you'll have to see him over the years because of the kids, might as well learn to communicate about that and hold boundaries and such. A counselor can help.
But it's time to go. See a lawyer.
