I have read an article on the above where she states despite being 18 weeks pregnant and pleased up until now she will be having an abortion to "further her career" namely to qppear on big brother.

whether this is morally ok is one thing but AIBU to ask if an abortion for the reasons she gives is legal? i suppose its similar to someone saying its not the right time, just more brazen?

(I consider myself pro choice btw I just find her apparent callousness a bit tough to take)

its fucking sick and I hope ch 5 tell to fuck off! shes the 1 that got a boob job on nhs cos she was 'depressed'!!

I think you can legally have one up until 19 weeks in this country, although most women would only choose to do it that late due to health problems - not to become famous!

It's awful but I think she'd probably be doing the poor thing a favour. I wouldn't want a mum like that.

This woman (warning daily mail link):

YANBU. NHS boob job to become a 'glamour model' (who is she kidding?) and now an abortion to become a BB contestant. I'm stunned that anyone could take the decision to have an abortion so lightly and for such an apparently trivial reason AND then boast about it in a national newspaper.

chav scum might be a description some would use.

Just googled. Tbh if big brother would consider having this sket bag on their show what does that say about those that watch and support it? And how ironic that Nicola faketits McLean is condemning someone else

MrsSpencerReid Sun 20-Apr-14 13:03:38

I read about this with my mouth open, I am speechless, it's awful, both what she is doing and that she is making it all so public sad

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Sun 20-Apr-14 13:03:53

Up to 23 weeks 6 days, not up to 19 weeks.

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 20-Apr-14 13:05:08

I think she'd say or do anything in her pursuit of 'fame'

Nennypops Sun 20-Apr-14 13:05:41

I just read the whole thing with a massive pinch of salt, given that on the one hand we have someone who is clearly in it for the publicity, and on the other hand we have the fact that it's a Mail report. I suspect any relationship between this story and the truth is purely incidental.

I thought that you could have an abortion if two doctors agreed that to continue the pregnancy would be damaging to the emotional or physical health of either the baby or the mother.

I wouldn't know as I've never been pregnant.

It is disgusting but I think the child might have been spared a dreadful mother.

Weathergames Sun 20-Apr-14 13:08:14

She already has 2 DC hmm.

gordyslovesheep Sun 20-Apr-14 13:10:46

she's obviously a fucked up kid - shame on the fail for publicising this

and for the record she had breast implants because she had a condition that meant she had no breast tissue - IE no breasts at all

it was done for medical reasons

ChocolateCoveredMisery Sun 20-Apr-14 13:12:09

She is as vile at that awful pink shade of lipstick she wears.

Why anyone would give her the publicity she wants is beyond me. She offers nothing in the form of talent.

realitygone Sun 20-Apr-14 13:14:27


she is all that's wrong.

FreudiansSlipper Sun 20-Apr-14 13:16:15

so you have fallen into the dm trap of putting down a woman who is quite obviously in a desperate state if mind

did you miss the fact she is working as an escort, is desperate to change the way she looks by having plastic surgery, has no idea who the father is

something is very wrong when someone is humiliating and purposely damaging themselves for attention

CunningAtBothEnds Sun 20-Apr-14 13:19:48

i saw the story shared on fb through the mirror if anyone wants to read it im shite at links. a very sad state of affairs

Bifauxnen Sun 20-Apr-14 13:21:33

Well she's hardly the first to choose to abort because it will mess up her life plan. As long as it's within the legal timeframe then her choice is her choice, regardless of my personal opinion. I won't be hurrying to jump on the DM's spitewagon.

WhereYouLeftIt Sun 20-Apr-14 13:24:48

"She told the Sunday Mirror: 'An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won't have a baby. Instead I'll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way.'"
I cannot help but feel sorry for this woman. She needs help, and I don't mean surgery sad. Shame on the tabloids for this.

TeenageMutantNinjaTurtle Sun 20-Apr-14 13:26:07

I think there's more to this than meets the eye. She's said in an interview that her decision is based on a "breakdown in communication with Channel 5".

Which suggests to me that they tried to cancel her appearance after finding out she's pregnant... Which is pretty despicable...

So I'm hoping that she has no intention of going through with the abortion, but wants to put pressure on Channel 5 to have her on despite the baby.

We'll see I suppose. Either way the abortion would technically be illegal because although it's within the 24 wk time limit, abortions are only supposed to be conducted if the well being of mother or child is deemed to be at risk.

This story makes me very sad....

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 20-Apr-14 13:29:34

She's totally messed up sad hope ss are involved with her children they are going to need a lot of help with a mother acting out like this sad

janesnowdon1 Sun 20-Apr-14 13:35:37

After 16 weeks you have to give" birth" to the baby as a late abortion. The baby is injected in the womb and then you are induced to give "birth". This sort of late abortion is not available on demand but usually used for babies who have very severe problems that would nout survive after a full term birth and sometimes for cases of late presenting cases of abuse/rape etc.

I agree though that she needs help.

CunningAtBothEnds Sun 20-Apr-14 13:40:29

that was my question really, does her reasoning fall within the legal guidelines, im sure it probably doesnt but I suppose its no different to anyone else who has changed their mind.

Its very sad all round. sad

PlentyOfPubeGardens Sun 20-Apr-14 13:46:38

If a woman is forced to continue a pregnancy she does not want then of course her well being is at risk.

The rules are the same up to 24 weeks, janesnowdon1.
