Woman has abortion after refusing offer of marriage

One woman who had an abortion said that the father of the baby wanted to marry her.

She says:

7 week ultrasound. Most abortions happen after this time

“… He woke me up in the middle of the night telling me that maybe he wanted to give up acting and wondered if we should get married. I said, “Why don’t we break up instead?” Does he think that because I accidentally got pregnant I’m supposed to sort of accidentally get married?

It’s out of the question. There’s no way I want to marry Rick or to have a baby with him. First of all, we can barely survive ourselves. But more than that, he just can’t handle it. He’s not ready to be a father and certainly not ready to help me to have an abortion. Does he have any idea of what it’s like for me?

I’ll pay for the abortion myself… I’ll keep him informed; I guess he deserves that much. But who needs his hassles in addition to everything else?”
