There are wierdos, and then there are people that write books about how wierd they actually are.  Meet Irene Vilar, a woman that claims she is addicted to having abortions.  Over the last 17 years she has had 15 abortions.  While I am sure that this isn’t a record, it is surprising that she is still capable of becoming pregnant.

She claims that the reason she started to have abortions was because her husband claimed that having children will destroy their sex life … apparently ripping babies out of her body prematurely is perfectly OK to maintain a healthy sex life.


From the age of 16 until 33, Vilar ended the pregnancies and also attempted suicide several times. She claims that her husband, a 50-year-old Latin American literature professor, told her that having children killed sexual desire. So she stopped taking her birth control pills as a way of defying him.

“But slowly, my days took on a balancing act and there was a specific high. I would get my period and be sad, then discover I was pregnant, being afraid, yet also so excited,” Vilar said.



Personally, this seems more like a ploy to sell more of her new book,  Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict .  Having 15 abortions sounds extraordinary at first, but I had friends way back in high school that had in excess of 5 abortions before they even graduated … so, 15 by the age of 33 doesn’t impress me that much by shear quantity.

What does impress me, however was this …

Vilar eventually left her husband after 11 years and remarried in 2003. She now lives in Denver and has two children and two stepchildren.Source:

Not only is she still capable of becoming pregnant, but she managed to have 2 children.  She must have had some good abortion doctors.
