Husband tells wife not to have her baby

A woman who had an abortion talked about another woman she met at the clinic:

“She was Catholic. She had two boys. They lived in a two-bedroom apartment. Her husband worked; she didn’t. She very much wanted a girl. When she got pregnant, her husband said, ‘You cannot have this baby. We cannot afford it.’ He made her go and have the abortion. It was horrible for her because she wanted her girl….She was so clear and so sure that she was going against the Church and going against her basic instincts. It was just horrible for her…”
