When Abortion isn't a Choice

Antigone is a blogger who chronicles her struggles and efforts to remain pregnant after three miscarriages (her last child, Henry, at 22 weeks). Her husband (who wants a divorce) recently gave her an abortion ultimatum.
He says I must have an abortion, that he would force me to have one if he legally could. If I don't, he says he'll do everything in his power to take the child away from me as soon as it is born, including lies to support the idea that I was an unfit mother. He also says he'll make my moving out has difficult as possible unless I abort and that he'll use every dollar of his to do it.
