The stunning Bachie runner-up admitted that she would cry every time she was asked by producers, Matt's best friend Kate and co-star Sogand Mohtat to talk about having babies.
"I'm so sick of having to justify [to these women] why I haven't been screaming from the rooftops,'I want kids'," she said, adding that she's been "hesitant" to have a baby ever since. "At the time, I felt guilty for saying I wanted kids because I aborted one in March last year."
Throughout the season, Abbie decided to stay quiet about her experience. However, once she discreetly told Matt through a "whisper" about what she went through, producers did their best to catch it on camera.
"I whispered it to him and his producer didn't hear me and said, 'Abbie, you are going to have to say it out loud.' And then I turned around, looked dead in the camera and said, 'I had a f**king abortion last year.'"
Abbie later begged the Network 10 producers to remove the moment from the final edit, however she has now decided to talk about it in an attempt to remove the stigma around abortions.
"In the house, I told the girls about my abortion... because I didn't want other women to feel ashamed about having abortions and I feel like it was used against me," she revealed. "A lot of women have abortions and, whether or not you know they have abortions, it's OK. I just don't want people to be shamed for that or feel internal shame.
"Maybe someone who's kind of in the public eye saying they've had an abortion and that it's OK will help them [women who've had abortions]."
We hear you girl.
