A father has spoken movingly about the “sea of pain” he experienced after his child was aborted.

Writing for The Telegraph, Tony Perry stressed that abortion is a “choice that has an impact on men as well as women.”

He was responding to an article by Daily Mail columnist Bel Mooney, where she described her decision to have an abortion as “no big deal.”

Perry wrote, “For many, abortion is a big deal that can leave regrets long after that choice is made. It is also a choice that has an impact on men as well as women.”

He added: “Perhaps the general assumption is that abortion doesn’t really affect men. Perhaps I would have shared that assumption had I not lived through it myself.”

He described his relationship with a woman several years ago that resulted in an unexpected pregnancy.
