Abbie Chatfield shares a photo of herself at six weeks pregnant the day before she had an abortion


Abbie Chatfield described the U.S. Supreme Court’s anti-abortion ruling as ‘barbaric and terrifying’ in an Instagram post on Saturday.

The former Bachelor star, 27, shared a photo of herself at six weeks pregnant the day before she had an abortion at age 23, and said there are ‘no guarantees the right to abortion in Australia will be protected forever’.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, ending the constitutional right to abortion in the U.S., means individual states can decide whether abortion can be made illegal.

In the photo, Abbie captured a mirror selfie in a bathroom and donned a white frock and nude strappy heels.

‘This is me the day before I had my abortion, at the earliest stage you can realistically tell that you’re even pregnant. Here, I’m six weeks pregnant,’ she wrote online.

‘Thankfully, I had access to safe abortion literally the day after finding out that I was pregnant. I remember not sleeping the night before the procedure, worried that I had missed the cut-off date, and I would have to carry a child to term.
