Abortion by Gunpoint: “Because it’s your choice, b—–!”

Columbus, OH (LifeNews.com) — An Ohio man was arrested this morning after police say he allegedly tried to force his pregnant girlfriend at gunpoint to have an abortion. Dominic L. Holt-Reid is a 27-year-old man from Columbus, Ohio and he represents what research shows is the all-too-frequent phenomenon of coerced and pressured abortions. Police say Holt-Reid was arrested and charged with kidnapping and carrying a concealed weapon after he tried to make his partner keep a scheduled appoint for an abortion she decided to go back on today. Police found him in the parking lot behind the Founder’s Women’s Health Center abortion facility in downtown Columbus¬† Sgt. Rich Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman, told the Columbus Dispatch newspaper the unnamed woman and Holt-Reid have another child together. They said the couple were in a vehicle dropping their child off at school when Holt-Reid became angry after the girlfriend refused to keep the abortion appointment slated for this morning. Holt-Reid reportedly obtained a gun from the glove compartment and pointed it at his pregnant girlfriend — forcing her to drive to the abortion center. The Dispatch indicates she passed a note to center staff, who called the police after receiving it. A report released earlier this year finds women who have abortions frequently report they feel pressured or coerced into having one — and they say they don’t get the counseling they need from abortion centers for abortions they may not otherwise want. The report from the Elliot Institute, Forced Abortion in America, calls the problem a “widespread epidemic.” http://www.lifenews.com/nat6356.html

The report notes how research suggests most abortions are likely unwanted or coerced, with one survey of women who had abortions finding that 64 percent said they felt pressured by others to abort. http://www.theunchoice.com/News/ruestudy.htm The same survey found 80 percent of women said they did not receive the counseling they needed to make a decision — even though more than half said they felt rushed or uncertain about the abortion. The consequences for those who refuse abortion can be dangerous and even deadly, according to the report, which details cases of women and girls facing violent attacks or murder for resisting abortion. Studies of death rates among pregnant women in the U.S. have found that homicide is the leading cause of death among pregnant women, the authors say. The cases detailed in the report represent only a fraction of the more than 200 cases the Elliot Institute has on file of women and girls being attacked or killed with the intent of getting rid of the pregnancy. The updated report contains new cases as well as a new special section on teens and forced abortion.¬† “Our files contain hundreds of stories from women and girls who were attacked or killed with the intent

  1. Sad commentary about a culture programmed through our education establishments, courts and governments to love without meaning (Kinsey Sex Education) and murder without guilt (Abortion). In a democracy the citizens are responsible for choosing the politicians who pass Bills into Law or running for office when no one else protects the sanctity of life. Too many pagans call themselves Christians and Christian Clergy, they lock themselves in big boxes and pretend they are church. Only a remnant like Tom Landers and friends actually do something about our culture that is sliding into the sewer. Christians once turned the world by doing good. The little benevolence left in our society is from their labor. Please wake up and get to the work that you pretend to be called to do.
