The Cost of Abortion


Society believes that women (& men) can abort their children, sometimes multiple pregnancies and life will continue along without problems.  However, we in the prolife movement know from women who have come forward after their abortions that the fall out from abortion is far reaching and effects many different parts of a family.

The story of Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert that has emerged in Jimmy Connors autobiography and tells the behind the scenes story of the fall out of their success;

In the 1970s the tennis world was at an all-time high with the greats of the sport rivaling one another on and off the courts.  One focus of attention was the engagement between the top man and top woman of the sport.

Jimmy Connors and Chrissie Evert called off their wedding and while their tennis careers survived their personal lives were fraught with struggle.  Connors claims in his newly released book that one of the reasons that contributed to the breakup was abortion.


In The Outsider, Connors writes:

“Listen, an issue had arisen as a result of youthful passion and a decision had to be made as a couple. I was staying in an apartment and Nasty [Ilie Nastase] was there when Chrissie called to say she was coming out to LA to take care of that ‘issue.’

I was perfectly happy to let nature take its course and accept responsibility for what was to come. Chrissie, however, had already made up her mind that the timing was bad and too much was riding on her future. She asked me to handle the details. 

‘Well, thanks for letting me know. Since I don’t have any say in the matter, then I guess I’m just here to help.’”

Evert went on to marry and divorce three times, Connors remained married but admits infidelity which nearly cost him his marriage.

The cost of abortion is very high.  As we have heard for many years now from the courageous women of Silent No More, beyond killing the child in the womb, abortion harms women and countless men now regret their lost fatherhood. 

The killing of children by abortion must end for the good of the children, their mothers and fathers, and society as a whole
