From Zelda from Melbourne:

“My husband gave me an ultimatum: go and get an abortion or he would leave. As the sole parent’s  pension was an absolute pittance in those days I felt that I had no choice.… Inside myself I was thinking, “Oh please don’t let this happen; I want to keep this child; I think it will be a boy, a lovely little brother for my daughter.”

Melinda Tankard Reist, “Giving Sorrow Words” (Sydney: Duffy & Snelgrove, 2000), p. 17

Quoted in E. Joanne Angelo, M.D.. “The Psychological Aftermath of Three Decades of Abortion.”
