One post-abortive woman tells her story of being pressured into an abortion:
“There’s no way you’re having a baby, I never want kids,” he said.
I told him it’s too late, I’m pregnant and couldn’t be happier. But he accused me of deceiving him and going behind his back, secretly planning a baby without his approval…..
[M]y pregnancy was an accident, it hadn’t been planned and I just assumed that he would be okay with it. I mean, why wouldn’t he? As far as I knew we loved each other, we owned a house together, we were financially secure and our future looked great.
But he was furious and threatened to leave me if I had the baby. So what was I supposed to do? … [A] week later, I found myself in a clinic and it was the worst day of my life, terminating a much-wanted baby. But what could I do when my partner didn’t want a baby?
I was in a lot of pain the following days, both physical and emotional, it was a total nightmare, I started having dreams about my lost baby. I was convinced she was a girl and I was just gutted. Also, I was left with so much guilt, I wish I’d been stronger and convinced Keiran to let me go through with the pregnancy…
One night Keiran told me he needed to talk and he dropped a bombshell, he was breaking up with me… I thought he loved me but clearly he didn’t, and of course I wished I hadn’t terminated my pregnancy because at least I’d have my baby.”
