While abortion proponents rattle on about how empowering abortion is supposedly for women, more and more cases are popping up every month about how men use abortion to subjugate women.

One case, out of Cleveland, had Ariel Castro keeping multiple women as sex slaves and, once they became pregnancy, assaulting them to the point of causing an abortion of the baby and killing the baby.

Now the Chicago Tribune has the details of another cases where a man faces a lawsuit from his ex-wife about how he allegedly kept her as a sex slave and forced her to have an abortion when she, too, became pregnant. Chances are, the abortion clinic in question never inquired about whether she wanted the abortion or was facing sexual assault and sex slavery from her husband.

As the Tribune reports:

A Gold Coast woman who alleges her ex-husband sexually assaulted her, forced her to parade around their homes naked and in heels, sleep on the floor next to their bed at night and address him as “master” took the stand this morning and testified about the romantic early days of their relationship.

Kimberly O’Brien is suing her ex-husband, Kevin Anderson, a Wisconsin businessman, for civil damages in federal court, alleging sexual assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She claims he sexually assaulted her on their honeymoon and forced her to have an abortion before they were married.

“If you are a good slave this will never happen again,” her attorney, Dean Dickie, said in his opening remarks to jurors, repeating what Anderson allegedly whispered in his wife’s ear after striking her in the head then tying her up and leaving her bound for hours.



he Medical Science Monitor reported in 2004 that 64 percent of women having abortions said they felt pressured to abort. The Elliott Institute points to this statistic and many others, in its “Abortion is the un-Choice” campaign.
