A STUDENT is claiming an Uber driver abandoned her on the roadside after he realised he was taking her to an abortion clinic.
The 20-year-old from New York alleges the cabbie was “uncomfortable” as soon as she got into the car and began quizzing her about her destination.
The anonymous young woman posted about her alleged ordeal on Reddit, which cannot be verified.
In it she said she had fallen pregnant but was not in a position to be a mum.
Because there was no appointment in a local clinic, she decided to take an Uber to one an hour away.
But soon into the journey she claims the driver began interrogating her about where she was going and why before telling her she was “making a mistake”.
The student said she was shocked but remained silent.
She said: “He then said ‘I know it's none of my business, but…’ and proceeded to mention something about his wife being pregnant, how awful the procedure was (and proceeded to explain it in graphic detail), and that "there is so much they don’t tell you.
“He then said ‘you're going to regret this decision for the rest of your life" and that I was making a mistake’.”
'I'M SORRY, I CAN'T TAKE YOU'
Holding back tears, she said simply looked out of the window and avoided eye contact.
Suddenly, half way through the trip, the driver pulled over.
She said: “There was a gas station and a closed antiques store, and around us was farmland and forest.
“He said 'I’m sorry, but I can’t take you the rest of the way.
“I can take you back to [my city], but you won’t be able to find another Uber out here."
Meanwhile the student said her Uber driver “hung around” for about 15 minutes and asked her if she wanted to go back with him.
But she declined and the driver left her, it's alleged.
She did make her appointment one hour late after taking another cab.
Later she claimed reported the incident to Uber who said the driver was now banned.
The Sun Online has contacted the company for a comment.
