The woman has receipts, a “get well” card sent to her from Walker, as well as an image of a check from Walker reimbursing her for the cost of the abortion and expenses.
A woman who asked not to be identified out of privacy concerns told The Daily Beast that, after she and Walker conceived a child while they were dating in 2009, he urged her to get an abortion. The woman said she had the procedure and that Walker reimbursed her for it.
Additionally, The Daily Beast independently corroborated details of the woman’s claims with a close friend she told at the time and who, according to the woman and the friend, took care of her in the days after the procedure.
The woman said Walker, who was not married at the time, told her it would be more convenient to terminate the pregnancy, saying it was “not the right time” for him to have a child. It was a feeling she shared, but what she didn’t know was that Walker had an out-of-wedlock child with another woman earlier that same year.
The woman says Walker never expressed regret, and says she is coming forward now because of his hardline anti-abortion position. “I just can’t with the hypocrisy anymore, we all deserve better.”
When The Daily Beast asked Walker about the story, he said: “I’m not taking this anymore. I planning [sic] to sue the Daily Beast for this defamatory lie. It will be filed tomorrow morning.”
