Abortion is supposed to be this great and wonderful thing for women — empowering them in a male-dominated world. We’ve come to find out repeatedly over the years that abortion merely empowers some men to subjugate women to violence when they don’t want to be responsible for their unborn child.
Consider this case.

Daniel Lovick, 27, became abusive when his girlfriend fell pregnant and, in a bid to abort her unborn child , he punched her in the stomach and pushed her down a flight of stairs. Lovick was ultimately jailed for two years but was released because the baby survived his attempts to make it another victim of abortion.

Here is the rest of the story, from the London Daily Mail:

Lovick, who has a history of violence against women, escaped a longer sentence because the baby survived, a court heard. He was a friend of the victim’s brother and began a relationship with her when she started visiting him in prison.

He started being abusive upon learning of the pregnancy just before Easter, telling his partner: ‘You better get rid of that baby or I’ll kick it out of you.’

At 8.15am on May 19, he arrived at her home in Hull, East Yorkshire, let himself in and began shouting and swearing. She asked him to leave but he refused.

He told her: ‘You better go to the clinic and get rid of it. If you don’t, I’ll get a coat hanger and drag it out of you or I’ll stab you.’

Lovick then grabbed her and pushed her down a flight of stairs – seven steps in total – and she looked up to see him running towards her. He grabbed her hair and began punching her in the stomach, saying: ‘You’re not having the baby, I’m going to kick it out of you.’

The woman tried to protect her stomach by raising a leg.

Continuing the attack after she had got up, Lovick threatened to stab her, punched her ‘three or four times’ and pushed his thumb into her eye. The victim managed to make a phone call to Lovick’s mother, who heard him in the background making further threats against the unborn child.

Hull Crown Court heard that before he left the property, he threw clothes around, pulled the blinds down, and smeared porridge on the walls.

The woman was taken to hospital, where a friend who saw her said she appeared to be ‘in agony’.

She was bruised and had a bald patch at the back of her head where her hair had been pulled out, but the baby was unharmed.
