At the end of Revolutionary Road, April makes the decision to terminate her pregnancy on her own at home. She knows that this is dangerous and that her husband vehemently disapproved of her doing this after he discovered the apparatus that she was intending to use.
The morning that she did this, she was almost in a zombie like state during breakfast with her husband and even called to make arrangements for her 2 children (who were staying with friends that morning) to stay longer per her phone conversation:
I'm not feeling any better. That's really why I called. If its not an inconvenience for you... No. Not if they're outdoors playing. Don't call them in. Just...give them each a kiss for me, and tell them I...tell them...Oh, you know
When Frank (her husband) is in the waiting room in the hospital, he tells his friend that she did it to herself:
She did it to herself, Shep. She did it to herself.
It seemed that April completely lost hope of everything when Frank decided against their plans to move to Paris. She didn't care about anything. It seemed as though she almost wanted to punish Frank.
Was April trying to kill herself by terminating her pregnancy at home like this?
What makes me question her motives, is that she calls for help when she starts bleeding after she terminates her pregnancy.
Was she honestly just trying to terminate her pregnancy and it just turned into a horrible accident?
