This is complete rubbish from someone trying to sell something. To say that she literally doesn't know anyone at her level who hasn't had an abortion is BS. So her entire relay team, training partners, they all had them and then confided in her that they did? Her statements are irresponsible and potentially harmful to female athletes and the sport as well. Someone (preferably a former teammate) should call her out.
Yeah, her statement is obviously not true. There is no way every single track athlete she has met has had abortions. I don't know if her intent was to rile up her audience by false pretenses or rather just a regular sight of woman exaggering and using the word literally incorrectly to glorify gossip. Probably a little of both.
People, it could not be more obvious that she means that she does not know OF a single athlete who hasn't had an abortion. If those she has explicitly discussed abortion with, all have had abortions.
Back to your prattle now.
Adding "of" actually weakens your argument.
