Wanted a “kid-free” wedding
By Dave Andrusko
Even Planned Parenthood and NARAL might blanch at this.
The British newspaper The Sun reported today that “Pregnant bridesmaid claims the bride asked her to have an abortion so the big day would run more ‘smoothly.’”
An unidentified woman posted on Facebook that when the bride-to-be learned that she, her bridesmaid, was unexpectedly pregnant, the news went over like a lead balloon:
“She immediately told me that I was going to be so stressed trying to get my bridesmaid dress fitting on my own since I’d have to do it after everyone already had theirs (I was due in April, wedding was in June).”
“She reminded me that it was a kid free wedding, and then after thoroughly explaining how difficult her wedding would be for me, she said (verbatim) ‘so don’t you think it might be better for you to have an abortion?'” The woman continued.
“I had to read that one a few times.
If possible, the situation grew worse. According to Devine’s story
“I asked if she seriously just suggested I get an abortion to make her wedding go more smoothly?
“She told me I was ruining my life and then called her mom to tell me to have an abortion.
“Her mom texted me and said congratulations and said she was always there to support me no matter what I chose and to call her if I needed guidance.
“So (obviously) I didn’t speak to her again, got a wedding invite and never sent the RSVP back, and her eight months pregnant future SIL [sister in law] took my place as bridesmaid, she ended up with dresses that easily would’ve accommodated my postpartum body.”
