Man describes abortion as “eliminating evidence of mistake”

By Sarah Terzo

From a man whose partner had an abortion:

“It’s such a serious, emotional situation that a minor change in emotion or atmosphere can precipitate a break by one or the other person. She said, “Just give me the money!,” And I said “Fine!”… I could afford to eliminate the evidence of my mistake. Other people can’t.”
