A man was arrested on charges of inflicting serious bodily harm after slipping an abortion pill into his girlfriend’s milkshake, prosecutors in Norway said.

Now, the 26-year-old man who slipped the abortion pill into his girlfriend’s drink and caused her to have a miscarriage, said that he did so because it was the only way out.

The man pleaded guilty on Monday, to inflicting serious bodily harm and also to abortion without the consent of the mother. He is facing up to seven years in prison.

The 20-year-old woman lost the baby in her 12th week of pregnancy.

The woman told investigators that her boyfriend tried several times to convince her to have an abortion, but she was not interested.

After drinking the shake, she experienced severe abdominal pain and miscarried that night. She asked her doctor to perform several tests, which confirmed that the miscarriage was induced by a high dose of medication.

The man told the court that he feels badly about the situation, but thought it was the only way out.
