Singapore After her boyfriend left her following a pregnancy scare, a depressed girl wrote in asking other netizens for advice.

For the past six months, she wrote that he had been toying with her. “I gave in to having unprotected sex with him and ended up missing my period”, she wrote.

“The first thing he said when he knew I missed my period was we will need a lot of money if you are going for an abortion”, she added. Very hurt by what her boyfriend said, she said that she understood that they were both still studying and did not have much money.

“It really looks like he is just using me for sex and nothing else”, she wrote. A few weeks later, they broke up after her boyfriend ghosted her. She added that while it was good that she did not get pregnant, she found it very difficult to trust anyone. “I don’t know what wrong have I done to deserve this”, she wrote.

Netizens who commented on the post gave her advice not to trust such guys in future.

In a similar incident earlier this year, a 20-year-old woman pregnant with her boyfriend’s child polled netizens as to whether she should tell the father about his offspring or abort the child in secret.

The woman wrote that she turned 20 the year she got pregnane. While it is unclear if she had a teenage pregnancy and had yet to turn 20, she added that she had been with her boyfriend for two years before she found out she was pregnant.

She mentioned that she was confused because she was about to start university, and felt like she wanted to get an abortion.

According to AWARE (Association of Women for Action and Research), there is no minimum or maximum age for abortion in Singapore. There is no legal requirement for parental consent for minors (under 16). Abortion is prohibited after 24 weeks (6 months) of pregnancy unless the mother’s life is in danger.

An abortion can cost from $800 to $5,000, depending on whether the procedure is conducted in a restructured hospital (KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, or National University Hospital), a private hospital, or a private clinic. Singaporean patients can use their MediSave accounts to subsidise the procedure. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
