"Mom," she said hesitantly, "I really appreciate your feelings, but, in all honesty, how can you say you love someone you've never met?
At the end of the conversation, her mother said, "Darling, I want you to know we love you, and we love David." Susan was a bit dubious.
Many relationships between couples come apart shortly after an abortion.
Others survive only because the partners are still bound together by grief.
Many read self-help books, visit mental health websites, read the Bible, and retain only head knowledge. I am writing this self-help workbook for three major purposes.
These relationships often turn into prolonged, mutually destructive mourning rituals.(1) Even married couples are often driven apart by an abortion unless they can find a way to complete the grieving process together.
Abortion breeds anger, resentment, and bitterness toward the partner who was not supportive or who ignored their partner’s desire to keep the baby.
For some women, abortion is the result of an outright threat of abandonment if the woman won’t “do the right thing” and abort.
Other times, the pressure is more subtle: “It’s your decision, but….” Unfortunately, all the evidence shows that abortion to “save a relationship” almost never works.
