Bridezilla tells pregnant bridesmaid to have an abortion

Just horrible.

A cruel bridezilla demanded her pregnant bridesmaid have an abortion so it wouldn’t ‘ruin’ her wedding. 

The bridesmaid took to a Facebook group to rant about her horrible friend, asking for advice after the bride literally suggested she abort her precious unborn baby.

The anonymous woman said she found out she was expecting a baby a year before the wedding, after a long time thinking she was unable to have children.

‘So I told Kate*, expecting excitement right? Nope,’ the woman’s post began.

‘She immediately told me that I was going to be so stressed trying to get my bridesmaid dress fitting on my own since I’d have to do it after everyone already had theirs (I was due in April, wedding was in June).

She reminded me that it was a kid-free wedding, and then after thoroughly explaining how difficult her wedding would be for me, she said (verbatim), “So don’t you think it might be better for you to have an abortion?”‘

‘I asked if she seriously just suggested I get an abortion to make her wedding go more smoothly,’ she added.

‘She told me I was ruining her life and then called her mum to tell me to have an abortion.’

The woman said she immediately cut off all ties and refused to attend the wedding, while the bride’s sister-in-law replaced her as bridesmaid. 

‘Her eight-months-pregnant future SIL took my place as bridesmaid. She ended up with dresses that easily would’ve accommodated my postpartum body.’

Commenters were understandably disgusted.

‘I’m totally pro choice, but to ask someone to have an abortion in order to make sure her wedding goes smoothly is like really disturbing,’ one person wrote. 

‘How dare your life continue while I plan my wedding?!?!?!?’ another said. ‘Unbelievable! Some people. Congrats on the baby girl and I hope you have much better friends now!’
