DEAR DEIDRE: MY cruel husband is forcing me to have an abortion and I’m devastated.
I’m 40 and although the baby wasn’t planned, I was delighted when I found out I was pregnant.

But when I told my husband, who’s 44, he told me to get rid of it.
And when I showed him a scan photo, he said the baby looked like a dog.
That was a while ago and he says I need to have a surgical abortion.

My heart is breaking. I really want the baby but I love my husband, though he’s never been good to me.
I think he’ll leave me if I don’t go ahead with this termination.
DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t feel forced into having an abortion against your will. It has to be your decision.
Terminating a wanted pregnancy could haunt you for ever.
My support pack on Unplanned Pregnancy explains more about the options open to you.
Your husband is being abusive and doesn’t deserve your love. My support pack Abusive Partner details further sources of support.
