A new woman has claimed that Herschel Walker pressured her into having an abortion and drove her to a clinic to obtain one.
Allred said that her client, whom she introduced as Jane Doe, began dating the former football player in 1987 and had an intimate relationship with him for several years.
At the news conference, Allred presented evidence of hotel receipts, handwritten letters and a voice recording that Walker left Doe during their relationship.
Doe then explained that Walker drove her again to the clinic and waited for her for hours until the abortion was complete.
Walker has voiced strict anti-abortion policies but has already been accused of paying for an abortion for another woman.
