Really dickish of him to announce this, presumably without her permission. What, the greatest female tennis player in the world should have put her career and training on hold? I'd break up with him too if he thought that was a reasonable expectation.
How long before some religious group makes him their new anti-abortion spokesman?
Too bad he didn't wear a jimmy hat.
So Evert did something that was legal.
It was an abortion. An abortion, Jimmy. Just like our engagement is an abortion. Something that's unholy and evil. I didn't WANT your son, Jimmy! I wouldn't bring one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Jimmy! It was a son Jimmy! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end!
If it took Chris getting an abortion to get rid of the biggest jack ass ever to play tennis, then abortion is a good thing.
Shame on him for telling what no one needs to know. That should have been kept private.
They are both Catholics so it's assier than usual. He is a hall of fame shit head, so no surprise.
Don Henley did the same thing to Stevie Nicks. They're both asses.
What do they get out of these announcements years later? Are they just trying to shame the women?
Jimmy Conners has always been an asshole. Now he just put it in writing for us.
Not at all classy- Connor's problem has always been that he is not too bright.
Chris is one the the greatest players ever- I would rate a few other as just as great or greater.
What an asshole! Connors should be ashamed of himself, but he's too stupid to know why. Idiot.
Frank Sinatra beat the hell out Ava Gardner for aborting his kid.
More of a scandal is Radar saying that Evert is "considered the best female tennis player ever."

The Chris Evert Tennis Courts at her Catholic high school in Fort Lauderdale may be in for a name change, although she donated the money to have the tennis complex built. The school's football stadium is named after another grad - Brian Piccolo.
I love r5.
Idiot is true that he didn't have any input in the decision, if, then I feel bad for him
He's a douchebag, but I like that he outed yet another Republican hypocrite. Fucking witch supports the GOP.
Wow, really bad form.
Should be if it, not idiot. But that is kind do funny
Hey, I had abortions too! I had three of them. Take that, Chrissie.
If men have no say in the abortion decision they shouldn't be expected to pay child support.
R21, until the fetus can be implanted in the father for 9 months you need to shut the fuck up.
This thread is a prime example of why abortion needs to be safe and legal AND private.
Men are disgusting bastards.
I love r22!
r21 is correct.
If a woman can abort my child without my knowledge, then I should be able to bring her up on charges of murder, regardless of how I stand on abortion.
R25 The laws dont work that way.

I beg your pardon.
I would suggest to the man who would have a woman carry a baby to term against her will, to then take complete custody of the child assuming the couple will break up.
That will settle that R21 and 25.
If men could have children, there would be no debate on the abortion issue.
If men could have children, abortion would be a sacrament.
If men could have children, they wouldn't need your vaginas, which for many straight guys, is the ONLY reason you're tolerated.
why would he tell this? when did all this tattling on folks become the norm?
Sure R30, because every time a man fucks a woman, he is hoping a pregnancy will result. Sure, keep telling yourself.
Chris! Chris! I had five abortions!
I beat you!
You know, when I heard that Chris was pregnant, I told her to abort. Abort! Abort! Abort! Flush it down the pan! Bring me... a knitting needle!
It is in the case of Jimmy Connors R32.
Chris Evert had a wholesome all-American girl image at one time, but she was quite the slut. I thought everybody knew that by now; I think a long time ago some other tennis player wrote a book and mentioned that she was, despite her image, a sleep-around girl. Nothing wrong with that, but it is dishonest to pass yourself off as something you're not. It can have distatrous consequences. Just ask Tiger Woods.
From Evert's Facebook page:
[quote]In his book, Jimmy Connors has written about a time in our relationship that was very personal and emotionally painful. I am extremely disappointed that he used the book to misrepresent a private matter that took place 40 years ago and made it public, without my knowledge. I hope that everyone can understand that I have no further comment.
Classy, classy, classy. Love the woman (more now than in her heyday).
Please. Chris Evert and classy? Chrissie would still fuck Jimmy Connors if he could get it up. She's always looking for marriages to break up. Surprised she hasn't gone lez and tried to break Martina and her girlfriend up yet.
Chris is just pissed off that she couldn't buy Jimmy Connors' silence by paying him a settlement.
