Farrah Abraham Wanted An Abortion But Her Mom Said "That's Not Going To Happen"
"I don't believe in killing."

“She wanted to go get an abortion. … Then I turned to her and I just said, ‘We don’t believe in that. That’s a real person inside of you and we don’t believe in killing. That’s not going to happen.’”

There are all kinds of examples of why some of the parents on “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” are awful people. But if Farrah Abraham had the abortion she apparently wanted to have, as her mother Debra Danielson revealed on “Couples Therapy”? That wouldn’t have been one of those reasons. A pregnant 16-year-old Farrah apparently wanted to terminate a surprise pregnancy and her mother told her “That’s not going to happen.” While it isn’t clear whether Danielson physically prevented her daughter from getting an abortion — Iowa state law stipulates that a parent or guardian must be notified 48 hours before an abortion — it’s obvious that Farrah’s mother exerted pressure in other ways that took the decision out of Farrah’s hands. She didn’t have much of a choice in parenthood. As Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan Morrissey writes about this “Couples Therapy” clip, you actually feel really sympathetic towards Farrah. In all honesty, I find Farrah’s mom truly scary for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is because Danielson doesn’t believe in “killing” a fetus but is A-OK with hitting her daughter in the presence of her infant grandchild. [Jezebel]
