They say abortion is supposed to empower women, but thousands of cases worldwide over the years show abortion empowers men who shirk the responsibility of parenthood. In England, a man who changed his mind about becoming a father attempted to force his girlfriend to take abortion pills he bought online.

She refused, wanting to keep her baby even if he didn’t,  and now he’s headed to prison:

An Oxfordshire man has been jailed for two years after buying pills to cause a miscarriage and trying to pressure his girlfriend into to have an abortion.

James George, of Oxford Road in Old Chalford, near Chipping Norton, pleaded guilty to buying a poisonous or noxious pill to cause a miscarriage at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on February 22.

He was sentenced at Swindon Crown Court last Friday.

The 45-year-old’s partner became pregnant in August 2014, but George changed his mind about wanting a family and ordered ‘abortion pills’ three times from the internet, having them delivered to his home.



Detective Constable Jane Tregurtha, from Oxfordshire’s domestic abuse unit, said: “George put the victim under a lot of pressure to have a termination.

“He went to great lengths, researching abortion websites, phoning clinics, and took the victim to her GP to discuss a termination.”

In the United States, the national law and laws in more than half of the states in the nation allow prosecutors to charge criminals for two crimes when they kill and injure both a pregnant mother and her unborn child in the course of a violent crime outside the context of abortion, Without this law in place, assailants would only be held accountable for killing or injuring the mother in such an attack or assault and would face no punishment for killing the unborn child — even days before birth.

According to the National Right to Life Committee, some 35 states recognize the unlawful killing of an unborn child as homicide in at least some circumstances. The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, enacted April 1, 2004, covers unborn victims of federal and military crimes.

Of the 35 states, 25 of them offer justice and protecting for women and unborn children throughout pregnancy while another 10 offer the protection only during the early stages.

As LifeNews previously reported, one study found that as many as 64 percent of post-abortive women say they felt pressure to have an abortion.

Elliot Institute Director David Reardon, who co-authored the Medical Science Monitor study, 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.”

“Even if a woman isn’t physically threatened, she often faces intense pressure, abandonment, lack of support, or emotional blackmail if she doesn’t abort. While abortion is often described as a ‘choice,’ women who’ve been there tell a very different story,” Reardon said.
