Wedding Announcement Mentions Abortion

In The New York Times.

The New York Times published a wedding announcement for Miami Heat basketball player Udonis Haslem and his wife, Faith Rein—but a few paragraphs stood out. The write-up mentioned that the couple had been dating for about a year when Rein got pregnant and she wanted to get an abortion. The “timing was bad,” as they were both in college and he was working toward the NBA draft. “ ‘I am not a huge fan of abortion, but we both had sports careers, plus we could not financially handle a baby,’ said Mr. Haslem, noting how he struggled with supporting Kedonis, the son he had in high school, who is now 14 and who lives with his mother,” according to the announcement.
