A mother has revealed that her best friend suggested she ‘have an abortion’ after falling pregnant before her wedding.
Before the woman became pregnant, she was meant to be the bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding but when the bride said she wanted a ‘child free day’ she asked for her friend to ‘have an abortion’ to keep within the rules.
Posting on a Facebook wedding shaming group, she said “I was always told I couldn’t have kids so obviously my daughter was not planned but I was over the moon.”
The friend went on to add “So I told my friend, expecting excitement, right? Nope.”
“She immediately told me that I was going to be so stressed trying to get my bridesmaid dress fitting on my own since I’d have to do it after everyone already had theirs (I was due in April, wedding was in June).
“She reminded me that it was a kid-free wedding, and then after thoroughly explaining how difficult her wedding would be for me, she said ‘so you don’t think it might be better for you to have an abortion?’”
She continued on to say “I had to read that one a few times. I asked if she seriously just suggested I get an abortion to make her wedding go more smoothly?
“She told me I was ruining my life and then called her mum to tell me to have an abortion. Her mum texted me and said congratulations and said she was always there to support me no matter what I chose and to call her if I needed guidance.
“So (obviously) I didn’t speak to her again, got a wedding invite and never sent the RSVP back, and her eight months pregnant future SIL (sister-in-law) took my place as bridesmaid, she ended up with dresses that easily would’ve recommend my postmortem body.”
Members of the Facebook group described the bride as ‘Pure evil’ with another saying “asking someone to have an abortion in order to make sure her wedding goes smoothly is really disturbing.”
