In Louisiana, 41-year-old Stacey Ann Spione recently shared that her stepfather, Khalil Mohammed Muslimani, abused her for over a decade.
The Daily Mail reports that the abuse started when Spione was only four years old and continued until she was 16. Now Spione’s mother, Ruth Ann Johnson, has been charged with rape, child endangerment and indecent liberties for her participation in the crimes.
Spione said, “It started when I was 4 years old. It was never an option for me to have a choice. If you ask me, this is worse than murder because it never ended.”
Tragically, at the age of 11, Spione became pregnant and had an abortion. Then in 1989, Musilmani tried to marry Spione even though she was only 15-years-old. Spione went on to give birth to four of Muslimani’s children.
In 1990, Musilmani was put in jail and sentenced to several years in prison. However, Spione also requested that the Accomack Attorney General prosecute her mother because she knew about it and never intervened. Unfortunately, Johnson was let out on $25,000 bail but her ex-husband is still behind bars. Spione concluded by saying that she regrets not speaking up about the abuse sooner.
She said, ‘I will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. … This is going to be an example of what not to do. … If it helps one person, I’ve done my job.”

As LifeNews previously reported, forced abortion after rape is not uncommon and sometimes the abortion industry aids perpetrators by covering up the abuse and performing abortions on minors. For example, in the United States, a Colorado man took his stepdaughter in for abortion after raping her and Planned Parenthood performed the abortion on the 13-year-old girl. After the abortion, the girl was sent home with her abuser, who had been abusing her for seven years.
Although some people believe that forced abortion doesn’t occur in the U.S., statistics prove otherwise. In fact, as many as 64% of women say they have felt pressure to have an abortion. Elliot Institute director David Reardon, who co-authored a Medical Science Monitor study of American and Russian women with the 64 percent figure, said, “In many of the cases documented for our ‘Forced Abortion in America’ report, police and witnesses reported that acts of violence and murder took place after the woman refused to abort or because the attacker didn’t want the pregnancy.”
