One U.S. Olympic gold medalist, Sanya Richards-Ross, recently admitted to Sports Illustrated that she was pressured to have an abortion just ahead of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. Richards-Ross claimed that she didn’t know any female athletes who hadn’t had an abortion to keep them in competition, according to the Washington Examiner.
“I literally don’t know another female track and field athlete who hasn’t had an abortion,” Richards-Ross said.
The Examiner says that female athletes are left ignorant of their reproductive rights, as abortion is exclusively pushed as the sole solution to their “problem.”
Career is so important these days.
