Dolores Aveiro made the admission in a tell-all biography, , Mãe Coragem (which translates to ‘Mother Courage’), that doctors disagreed with her decision to terminate her pregnancy and refused to carry out the procedure.
I wanted to abort but the doctor didn’t support my decision, she wrote in her autobiography.Although she did not give any reason for wanting to abort her unborn child, Dolores said she had approached her doctor to carry out the abortion but he didn't agree with it and refused to do it. She then resorted to doing it herself by drinking warm beer and running with the hope that she would lose the pregnancy.
Speaking at the launch of her book in Lisbon yesterday, Dolores said Ronaldo of her secret and even joked about it.
He told me when he found out, 'Look mum, you wanted to abort and now I'm the one who's pulling the purse-strings in the house.'....she reportedly said.
