In her new tell-all memoir The Woman in Me, Britney Spears reveals that she was pressured to have an abortion by Justin Timberlake when they were a celebrity couple. “Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives.” She concluded, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.” 

Her experience is shared by millions. As an article in Christian Newswire put it, “[N]early 70% of the women who had abortions described them as being coerced, pressured, or inconsistent with their own values and preferences.”  

Many feel like Spears, who wrote, “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.” 

Abortion is a lie. Far from securing the rights and autonomy of women, abortion pressures women to cater to male desire and irresponsibility.
