A woman has claimed that her boyfriend gave her abortion pills without her consent over a number of months, which led to the death of her daughter on the day she was born.
In a long thread on Twitter, a woman who goes by the name Aba, explained her harrowing story of how her boyfriend gave her abortion-inducing drugs without her knowledge or consent by slipping them into her food and, shockingly, during sex. Aba was pregnant with his baby and her boyfriend did not want her to be.
Although the poisoning was going on for months, she only found out after she discovered abortion-inducing drugs that had come out of her body. She said: “[M]y boyfriend at the time inserted two abortion pills in my vagina under the disguise of oral and digital sex the morning of February 20th, 2022 when I was 17 weeks pregnant”.
Aba started to feel unwell shortly after but thought that it was food poisoning. However, she described how, after rushing to the bathroom, she looked “at the tissue … [and] saw one hexagonal pill. I was unsure of what was happening so I wiped again and on that napkin there was another pill”.
“Too much of her brain was compromised from all of the abortion pills I was fed throughout my pregnancy”.
Aba hadn’t inserted the pills and she suspected they were abortion-inducing drugs after she searched for images online. She took herself to hospital where the pharmacist said the pills could have been abortion pills and that the symptoms she had experienced, including the loss of amniotic fluid, were consistent with taking the abortion-inducing drug, misoprostol.
At that stage, Aba said that her baby was okay, but she was frightened because she now suspected her boyfriend had been poisoning her by altering her normal medication for months. She recalled that a few weeks earlier, in her normal pregnancy medication she had seen “a smaller, hexagonal shaped pill that did not look like the others”.
“After finding the two pills of the same shape that came out my body I had later put together that this man had been switching out my prenatals throughout my pregnancy. At the time I had originally noticed this pill in December I was around 8 weeks pregnant”.
“Till this day I have no idea how many he’s given me”.
She had thought her boyfriend, who was initially extremely upset that she had become pregnant, was supportive of her and it never occurred to her that he was giving her abortion-inducing drugs without her consent. She described an occasion where he made a smoothie that he insisted that Aba drink and other occasions where he gave her pills that he said would treat her other medical needs.
Aba said: “At the time I wasn’t thinking he had already switched my pills. I agreed. There were days when he’d drive from his home directly to mine for the sole purpose of giving me my pills then left”.
When Aba was 24 weeks pregnant, she was admitted to hospital with very heavy bleeding.
“On April 21st, 2022 my daughter was born. This same day her death certificate was signed. After her birth I was told because of the constant interference she didn’t stand a chance at a prosperous or healthy life”.
“Too much of her brain was compromised from all of the abortion pills I was fed throughout my pregnancy. Till this day I have no idea how many he’s given me”.
“I was in labor for 17 hours. I held her for as long as I could. Spoke to her and told her just how much I loved her. I pray I can be with her again one day. What she faced and endured within me was not fair and I wish I could’ve protected her somehow”.
Aba said that she reported these events to the police, but so far, no known action has been taken.
Right To Life UK spokesperson, Catherine Robinson, said: “This is a truly sad story that shows the dangers of making abortion pills easily available. We do not know how Aba’s boyfriend got hold of the abortion-inducing drugs, but we do know that in the UK, it is easier than ever to get hold of such drugs without ever seeing a medical professional. The availability of ‘DIY’ abortions means that a woman can access abortion-inducing drugs entirely outside of a clinical setting. After she has got hold of them, there is no way to know who takes them and someone with nefarious intent, like Aba’s boyfriend, could get hold of them and force someone to have an abortion without their knowledge or consent”.
