Man

the man begins trying to convince the woman, Jig, to have an abortion, but only, he says, if she wants to. He tells her that their relationship is on track, but that he is distracted because of his "worry" over the pregnancy. he man tries to reassure her that this is not the case, and finally tells her (without actually saying it) that he is willing to marry her instead, but makes it clear he would prefer that she have the abortion. He responds by saying he doesn’t want her to have the abortion if she doesn’t want it.
