We’ve been married for 21 years & I still don’t know how.
Very much to his credit, he ACTUALLY changed his views, as opposed to doing that thing where only “his” abortion is moral and everybody else who gets one is still a deranged slut.
I didn’t even know whether I was pregnant yet, but I still felt so frustrated and upset and trapped that I sometimes thought about suicide.

“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
“cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field"
But once I saw the anti-legal movement as being mostly about shaming and punishing women, I saw the evidence for it everywhere.
