Woman Tricked Into Falling Pregnant Shares Abortion Story In Midst Of US Ban

Woman Tricked Into Falling Pregnant Shares Abortion Story In Midst Of US Ban

New abortion restrictions have proven hugely controverial in the US at the moment - as they would mean terminations after eight weeks would be banned in most cases, which are believed to include pregnancies as a result of rape or incest..

However, there are less immediately obvious but no less significant scenarios that should also be considered, such as when a woman is tricked into having a baby because contraception has been tampered with.

Taking to Twitter to share her experience, a woman called Brie revealed that she was just 17 years old when her boyfriend at the time 'poked a hole into his condom' without her knowing. She fell pregnant and was 'terrified'.

Brie, from Michigan, US, said that when a store-bought test showed she was pregnant, her boyfriend 'screamed with glee' before explaining that he had intentionally got her pregnant so he could 'lock her in'.

She wrote: "I was confused & scared. I didn't know how to act. I was 17 years old. My friend urged me to go to a women's clinic to make sure."

Naturally, that's exactly what she did - but the religious owners of the clinic were far from sympathetic to her situation. She continued: "They proceeded to tell me that if I killed my baby, I would be a murderer, and murderers go to hell. I was 17 years old."

Missouri Has Become The Latest State To Move Towards An Abortion Ban

Brie claims that her ex boyfriend only left her alone when the police got involved and arrested him for stalking, but she says she 'thanks God every day' that she didn't go through with the pregnancy as she would 'hate herself' for bringing a 'living and breathing child' into the situation.

She took the decision to tell her story in a bid to help others, saying that if she did make a difference to one person that 'means more' than her pain does.

Adding: "To the girls and women in Ohio, Georgia and Alabama and more states to come, I am with you. I will never stop fighting for your rights as a HUMAN. Stay strong and never be ashamed of who you are and what you do with your own body."

When she shared her story, Brie was inundated with messages of support from people all over the world.

One person said: "Thank you for telling your story to us. I'm old enough to remember already fighting this fight. I've had it with everyone who has the nerve to tell any of us what we can't do with our bodies. This is a war we will win. #Enough #MyBodyMyBusiness."

Another added: "I'm so sorry you had to experience all of that, and I'm so sorry you had to share it with us all now so that your government can see you're a person. I'm so glad though that you were able to choose what was right for you."
