Paralympic champion Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson has recalled the moment she was offered a termination by a medical professional and was asked how she got pregnant.
The 50-year-old was born with spina bifida, which is when a baby's spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb, causing a gap in the spine.
Grey-Thompson became pregnant with her daughter Carys in 2001.
She told BBC podcast 'Stumps, Wheels and Wobblies' that she was 37 weeks pregnant when a woman approached her on a Cardiff street and said: 'How did you get pregnant?'".
"I remember screaming at her in the street: 'I had sex. How do you think I got pregnant?'
"She was like: 'Oh, that's disgusting.' And I said: 'I think he's quite good looking, actually.'"
Grey-Thompson was born in Cardiff and won nine Paralympic Gold medals
I lost count of the number of people who asked me how I got pregnant. The first thing I was offered at my first scan was a termination because people were like: 'You should not have children.' We had a discussion [with the medical staff] about if I was trying for babies and that individual had some quite complicated views on disability - [an attitude of] we might breed.
