Abortion contributes to divorce of couple

From a postabortion father:

“While this [abortion] was not the only reason for our subsequent divorce, it was a major one. I blamed her for being so insistent on having the abortion. I felt that she had coerced me to into making a decision that was really against my inner feelings. I never forgave her while we were together, because I didn’t want to face the fact that I was a co-conspirator with her. I only knew that the child was gone, and could never be replaced.

We separated one year after the abortion and divorced a few months after that. I don’t know what side effects she might have as a result of the abortion because I haven’t seen her since the divorce. But I do know how it affected my life.”
