Bachelorette Brooke Blurton reveals she had an abortion a 'little time ago'


Bachelorette star Brooke Blurton has put her feud with Abbie Chatfield to rest in an Instagram post on Sunday. 

Brooke, 27, praised Abbie, also 27, for being ‘honest and vulnerable’ by sharing her own experiences with abortion amid the U.S. Supreme Court’s anti-abortion ruling.

In her candid Instagram post, Brooke revealed that she had an abortion a ‘very little time ago’ and called on women to ‘come together’.

Brooke shared Abbie’s Instagram post on Saturday to her Instagram Stories, praising her for being an ‘icon’ and a ‘change maker’.

Abbie shared with her fans 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’.  

‘As an icon and change maker, I’ve always admired Abbie for the topics she speaks on. Her honesty, particularly around abortion was one that I thought she showed so much strength in and thought, wow what a f**king human,’ Brooke began.

Brooke referenced how their former friendship played out in the media, but said that ‘disputes aside’, she’s ‘always admired the vulnerability Abbie has’.

She concluded by urging women to ‘come together’ and that ‘education and learning is key’.

‘Women can come together. We need to. After going through my own experience of an abortion only [a] very little time ago. 

‘I am so lucky (if that’s the word to use) to have choice. WHY do men have choice over our bodies, why do they get right over them?’

The Supreme Court ended constitutional protections for abortion that have been in place for nearly 50 years by deciding to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling.

Power has now been handed back to individual states to decide whether or not to permit the procedure.  

Women with unwanted pregnancies in America will now face the choice of traveling to another state where the procedure remains legal and available, buying abortion pills online or having a potentially dangerous illegal abortion.

Accusing the court of ‘expressly taking away a constitution right that is so fundamental to so many Americans’, Biden vowed the fight over abortion rights ‘is not over’.

He said his administration will do everything in its power to combat efforts to restrict women from traveling to other states to obtain abortions.

Brooke and Abbie’s feud began in November when Abbie debuted her relationship with one of Brooke’s Bachelorette contestants, Konrad Bień-Stephen, before her season finale.

Without naming names, Brooke had criticised a ‘close friend’ who had pulled the focus from The Bachelorette finale with her actions.

Late last year, Abbie issued a public apology on Instagram, explaining that she’d only made things official with Konrad because she believed she had Brooke’s blessing.

‘Brooke and I had a conversation in which I apologised and expressed regret multiple times for our public affection as this was prior to Konrad’s exit from the show. Konrad had a similar conversation with Brooke,’ she said.

‘We absolutely should have waited to be in private as we are public figures and these are things we need to consider, but we didn’t. We also didn’t consider the possible ramifications of our actions.

‘Immediately following this, we intentionally kept things quiet, and did not leave the house together in an effort to not be photographed out of respect for the show and to minimise press surrounding the spoiler of Konrad’s exit.’ 

Abbie told Who magazine in late January that the former BFFs were talking things over.

‘There was some drama with Brooke when Konrad and I got together, but we are in a better place now,’ Abbie explained. ‘I think so anyway.’
