A Pakistani girl is dead after police said she was kidnapped, raped and then forced to abort her unborn baby.
The Nation, a news outlet of Pakistan, reports her abuser, allegedly Muhammad Ali, son of Doulat of Chak 134/JB, Pakistan, admitted to the crime.
Ali allegedly raped and impregnated the girl earlier this year, according to police. Reports do not indicate the girl’s age.
When the girl’s parents discovered she was pregnant, they demanded that Ali marry her “to save honor [sic] of the family,” according to the report. However, police said Ali kidnapped the girl instead and took her to an abortionist in Faisalabad. There, police said she was forced to abort her unborn baby.
Here’s more from the report:
In the meantime, the girl’s family carried out extensive search for her but to no avail.
They, however, came to know that the girl [was] lying in critical condition at GTS Chowk, Faisalabad from where they took her to back home and then to Allied Hospital, Faisalabad where she succumbed to the negative affects she had suffered during [the] abortion by untrained providers and usage of excessive medicines.
The Rajoa Police have registered a case under sections 302, 365/B, 376/I and arrested the accused who has, reportedly, confessed to the crime.
The girl’s body was handed over to the heirs after autopsy at DHQ Hospital Chiniot.
Abortion is promoted as a woman’s choice, but too often women and girls are forced or pressured to abort their unborn babies. Many times, the people forcing them are parents or partners who have abused them. 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.

In America, there is a frightening, growing trend of men trying to force abortions by secretly slipping abortion drugs into their partner’s drinks. Earlier this year, a Virginia doctor was convicted of spiking his pregnant girlfriend’s drink with an abortion drug, killing their unborn baby. Dr. Sikander Imran was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to fetal homicide.
Many pro-life advocates are concerned that these abuses could grow worse if abortion activists succeed in forcing pharmacies to dispense abortion drugs or allowing them to be distributed by mail-order. The ACLU and Hawaiian abortion activists are suing the federal government in a case that could force every pharmacy in America to sell dangerous abortion drugs.
