In 19th century Massachusetts, during the gruesome Salem Witch Trials, those convicted were given an ultimatum. The act of confession, even if untruthful, would result in living; on the other hand, not pleading guilty would result in the death penalty, even if innocent.

I do not agree with Ryder's assessment of Abigail. Initially, I think Abigail is selfish and is doing everything for herself so that she can have John Proctor. Abigail says, specifically, "oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be -." The quote supports what I think because Abigail wants John.
