A woman has divided the internet as she revealed how her husband asked her to abort their unborn baby.
Ranting about her husband’s demands on Mumsnet, the anonymous mom-of-two explained how her latest pregnancy was unexpected and how her husband wants them to abort their baby due to having financial difficulties.
While the husband is allegedly determined not to have any more children, he refuses to get a vasectomy despite his wife’s requests to undergo the procedure.
As the woman explained, she got pregnant with their first child years ago even though she was on contraceptives. In the following years, she also underwent an abortion and three miscarriages, leaving her in bad mental health and fears of unwanted pregnancy.
“AIBU to have asked my DH [husband] to consider ‘the snip’. I am a few weeks pregnant,” the mother-of-two wrote in her post.
“We have decided that I will have a medical abortion because our finances and lives have become less stable recently, we have 2DC [children] already and this was unplanned.”
As the wife added, she feels sad about having to go through an abortion. She is, however, left with no other option due to her husband’s firm views on the matter.
“In addition to our 2DC, I had three other early pregnancies which ended in MC while trying for DC2. My DH and I got together as teenagers at school. When I was a sixth former I had a late on termination, I didn’t know I was pregnant because I had the implant contraceptive,” she explained.
“So now I have asked DH to consider having a vasectomy and to research in to it … His reply was ‘I don’t get enough sex to even think about having a vasectomy’.”
Seeking advice on Mumsnet, the mother concluded:
“In my mind, I have born two babies, lost three, soon to have aborted two (I feel like the worst human being writing that), and taken contraception for years on and off. I’ve had enough sex (with him) to go through all of this.
“Surely it’s enough. It’s his turn to take responsibility for this – my mental health can’t survive another positive pregnancy test and I could have years before menopause.
“Even if he doesn’t want to have the procedure, his words were sharp. I feel like I’m on the edge – either of a breakdown or of LTB!”
After the mother’s post went viral, people were left divided, whereas some slammed her husband for forcing abortion on her while being selfish by refusing to have a vasectomy.
Others, however, voiced their support for the husband and told the mother she shouldn’t be pressuring him into having a snip just like he shouldn’t be pressuring her to have an abortion.
