‘Just a blob of cells’: Husband, abortion workers coerce woman to abort
One therapist who counseled post-abortive women commented on how so many of them did not want to abort. She said:
Of the many women I’ve counseled, I would say that well over 90% of them aborted their babies to please someone else: their husbands, boyfriends, parents, or peer group…. It’s a mockery to talk of a woman’s right to choose when she’s not the one doing the choosing.(4)
Sometimes these abusive men threaten violence. Sometimes they berate and harass the woman until she gives in. Some threaten to leave the woman if she doesn’t have an abortion. The woman is forced to choose between her baby and her relationship. Sometimes, a partner’s abandonment doesn’t just threaten emotional distress. A woman may be faced with raising her child as a single mother, without the income a partner would provide. She may be forced to find another place to live. Fear of living in poverty could be another factor driving her to abort.
