Big Brother winner: ‘I wept for hours’ over abortion done to please boyfriend

March 15, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A former winner on Britain’s version of the reality show Big Brother has opened up about her abortion experience six years ago, revealing how she was shattered after her boyfriend pressured her to abort her baby at 3 months gestation. She warned others to “not have an abortion for any man.”

In an interview found in the paper edition of Britain’s OK! Magazine this week, Josie Gibson said that she had an abortion when she was 20 years old. She had wanted to keep the baby; however, she said, her boyfriend at the time made it clear that he didn’t want the child.

“He waited until I was three months gone to let me know he didn’t want it,” said Gibson. “I even had baby names picked and he turned around and told me that he didn’t want our child and that I should get rid of it.”

Gibson, now 26, admitted, “I’ve regretted my abortion ever since.” “I wept for hours. I knew straight away that it was a mistake,” she recalled.

“I didn’t really want to have an abortion. But I did it anyway, to please him. Big mistake.” To other women in a similar situation, Gibson urged: “Don’t be forced into anything, don’t have an abortion for any man. Everything will work out alright in the end if you stay true to your own heart.”

Unreality TV reports that Gibson responded gratefully on Twitter after fans read the interview and sent her messages of support: “Thankyou 4 tweets guys. Was a little worried about OK mag with being so open about everything but I’m happy you understand x.”

The organization Silent No More Awareness has collected testimony from hundreds men and women who have suffered after abortions in several countries.

I’m wondering if the fact that this happened with her was recounted voluntarily on her part, or whether it was rescripted after indications were given that “the story would come out.” Likely by the former no good boyfriend....

My guess is damage control

This is great — and no, no woman should have an abortion to please a man, which MANY of them do.

Women are like an animal caught in a trap, having to chew off their own foot to survive.

Women abort the child, whom perhaps might end up being the one person who would have authentically and truly loved and supported them throughout their lifetime ...

Women have abortions to please men, to please society — they have them because they don’t have the courage to stand up to any of the wicked forces bearing down on them.

We need to stand with and support women in their times of crisis — and HOLD ACCOUNTABLE the men who get them into it.

Why is it always the woman’s problem? It should be the man’s problem as well. Abortion absolves men of all responsibility ...as does birth control.

Glad she spoke out ...maybe someday young women will get the drift here, as to the wool being pulled over their eyes.

Who says children are a burden?
Who says a kid “holds you back.”
Who says you can’t have a career AND raise a child?
Who says a child will ruin your life, your chance for happiness?

This is a very sad story. Her child is dead forever - and she was the one who killed it. She'll never, ever be able to hold her baby.

She, her “boyfriend” and the abortionist “doctor” are all responsible for murdering an unborn, innocent child.

Having said that, I wonder if she’s really sorry and repenting here, or if its just for show. I’m sure our Lord knows the answer to that question, and that’s who’s hands I’ll leave the judgement in.

As for the “boyfriend” - he’s a flat out coward. The abortionist is nothing short of a murderer in my eyes. God will judge him justly on judgement day, as he will the rest of us.

I have only occasionally met women who aborted at their own insistence, the larger majority almost always describe pressure from the father or parents. They are betrayed, and then they betray the life inside them.

But right now, there are thousands of young women in exactly this situation of being pressured by men to abort their children. This is exactly the message they need to hear.

Those who find delight in the death of other peoples babies. The more dead babies, the happier they are.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out some day that the rabid pro-aborts have a secret, once a month, unholy holiday to celebrate the passing of the dismembered infants. No doubt their cloaks would be colored a blood red.

How terribly sad.

I wouldn’t have expected to still be crying.

This, in most cases I believe, is why women have abortions. Because their man, their families, their friends offer them NO SUPPORT.

Any despicable man who does this should really rot in hell.

I’ve even known of HUSBANDS who’ve said this to their wives.

I think those who abort think nothing of it at first. They're pregnant, and then they're not. It doesn't hit them until they give birth to their first live child, and they look into the face of what they've done. That's when it hits them, and the liberal brainwashing wears off. From that point on, their conscience weighs heavily upon them until the day they die.

How can a pro-abort woman look upon the face of a new born child and not have a broken heart?

Excellent advice. The guy who doesn’t want to father/support your child probably doesn’t want you, either.

With the exception of the radical feminazis, I definitely believe that most women choose to abort for lack of support from father of the child and her own parents.

Unfortunately, once the decision is made, I think these women become feminazis to justify their own choice.

In my experience after years of counseling at a crisis pregnancy center, generally -

if the dad wants the baby, the baby lives

if he doesn’t, the baby dies.

I’d say about 90% of the time.

Sometimes women carry to please a guy. And sometimes they abort even though he’s begging her not to. But these are the rarer cases.

Ambivalence = “abort.” A girl/woman who thinks the dad really doesn’t care one way or another feels abandoned and panicked, usually. The men who say, hey, do whatever you want, I call “pillars of jello.” Pillars of jello usually end up with aborted children.

Virtually ALL of my clients are unmarried, as well.

I wish she had also advised women not to have sexual relations with men unless they are married to said men.

Sounds like there needs to be a “responsible fatherhood” campaign to counter the feminazi male hater agenda. Tear down the men, the men kill their kids.

im sorry, no man can make a woman have an abortion.

no man has been able to stop women from an abortion when they’ve wanted the baby and mama doesnt.

your bodies, your choice, thats what we’re smothered with. so be it, then you own it.

I won’t talk about the cases of rape, as that is a whole other subject.

But the way I see it, when two people choose to have sex, they made their “choice” right then and there. That goes equally for the man and the woman.

Did you read about the 7 month abortion a women had she was from Westchester County NY her and husband and her mother went to MD to kill the baby because it would have been born with birth defects. The women died along with her child she bled to death. I think the husband should be charged as an accomplice to murder of his child. What evil man would allow his wife to abort a child at 7 months no less they even had her named.

She is a bit heavy on blaming it on someone else.

I know of that case (of course I would). I am almost 100% sure her parents and husband talked her into that abortion. Why else would ALL OF THEM come down from New York, escort her to the clinic, if it were not to make sure she laid on that table and got that abortion? I smell something really fishy. That and the fact she had the baby registered at a baby store and never removed it even after SHE found out the baby had problems.

There is not a lot of “choice” in abortion as most would think.
