Woman Who Live Blogged Abortion Splits With Boyfriend, He Doesn’t Want Kids

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The woman who live blogged her abortion and gained national attention for relating her moment-by-moment experience using the dangerous abortion drug on YouTube and Twitter, has split with her boyfriend. Angie Jackson broke up with him because he reportedly doesn’t want to have children.
Jill Stanek, a pro-life blogger, has been following Jackson’s tale and she unveils the latest news in a new post at NewsBusters.
"I was sicker of Angie Jackson than anyone, and I know many of you were plenty sick of her. I felt personally responsible for giving Angie 5 of her 15 minutes of fame," she wrote Monday.
Stanek wrote several updates on Jackson’s abortion and the process unfolded and she received more national attention from mainstream media outlets.
She eventually moved on form the story while other pro-life advocates kept tabs on Jackson’s tweets — ranging from how she locks her 4-year-old in his bedroom to how she is still married to the father of her born child while shacking up with the father of her aborted baby.
Now Stanek is weighing in one more time with the news that Angie split with her boyfriend.
"She wrote over the weekend she is breaking up with the new guy, which in itself is no surprise since most relationships do fail following abortion," Stanek noted. "But her reasons are quite bizarre. On one hand she’s mad her boyfriend won’t get a vasectomy and on the other because he doesn’t like kids and is too old to start a family with [him]."
Stanek points to research from the Elliot Institute, which shows most relationships between unmarried couples come apart shortly after an abortion. Others survive only because the partners are still bound together by grief.
As Theresa Karminski Burke, a relationship expert, notes: "Abortion breeds anger, resentment, and bitterness toward the partner who was not supportive or who ignored their partner’s desire to keep the baby."
"At the same time, there is often tremendous pressure in the relationship to conceal one’s true feelings of grief or guilt. This can especially be a problem for men, who are often taught to hide their emotions. Men may also feel obligated to appear "strong" so as not to upset the woman any further," Burke continues.
Angie is lucky to be alive as the mifepristone abortion drug has killed more than 13 women worldwide and injured more than 1,100 in the United States alone.
Those statistics give Stanek pause because another woman who used the abortion drug and followed Jackson in posting her experience on Twitter, hasn’t been heard from since doing so.
Stanek writes: "In other news, live tweeting abortion copycat Nextthurs has still not be heard from since February 28, when she abruptly quit documenting her RU-486 abortion after ominously stating she’d been ‘bleeding like a stuffed pig all day.’"
