Man Recounts Partner’s Abortion

In Glamour magazine, a man identified only as Walt says the following about his partner’s abortion:

“I said, “What do you want to do?” She suggested abortion, thinking this would make it possible for me to continue to paint, that that in turn would prolong our relationship… She’s my age, 35, and it may have been her last chance to have a child. I believe she would be much happier if she’d had it – but I would be unhappy having a child I never saw and didn’t live with. I guess I sound like a real cad. Maybe I was.”
