Woman pressured into abortion: “our love turned to dust”

Writer Mary Kenny wrote about a woman whose partner pressured her into an abortion. She says:

“When I said I was pregnant,” wrote one young woman, “It just didn’t seem to register with my lover. “Well, you can get rid of it, can’t you?” He said. I had felt so romantic towards him, so much in love that I thought our love would be forever. With the pregnancy, he turned quite cold towards me. I had the abortion, because that was what he wanted, but now our love has turned to dust and I feel very, very sad.”
