A pastor in England was convicted last week of raping several young members of his congregation and then forcing them to abort their unborn babies to cover up his abuse.

The Mirror reports evangelical pastor Michael Oluronbi, 60, of Birmingham, originally from Nigeria, was found guilty of sexually abusing six women and a man on Friday in Birmingham Crown Court. Authorities suspect there may be even more victims who have not come forward.

Oluronbi, also a licensed pharmacist, impregnated four of his young victims and then made them abort their unborn babies, either by forcing them to take abortion drugs or taking them to abortion facilities, according to the report.

“He was a qualified pharmacist so he had access to certain medications, and on other occasions booked them into clinics under false names,” said Detective Superintendent Nick Walton of West Midlands Police, according to the Daily Mail. “One of the girls had five or six abortions.”

Oluronbi’s youngest victim was 9 years old, according to reports, though the news outlets did not take into account the unborn victims who were killed in the forced abortions.

Juliana Oluronbi, 58, the pastor’s wife, also was convicted of helping her husband abuse the children and helping arrange some of their abortions, the Mirror reports.

According to the Daily Mail, the victims are now adults. One came forward to report the abuse several years ago, and Oluronbi was arrested in 2018. Authorities said he abused children in his congregation for at least two decades starting in the 1980s.

Prosecutor Phil Bradley QC told the jury that Oluronbi’s church was more like a cult.

“The main tactic he employed was to claim that God had instructed him to administer ‘holy baths’ to some of his congregation in order to ‘cleanse’ them and protect them from evil influences,” Bradley said. “That activity began when his victims were children. There can be no doubt that its real purpose was to serve his sexual gratification.”

Police said Oluronbi confessed to sexual abuse in a 2019 video. He allegedly claimed the devil made him abuse the children. However, according to reports, Oluronbi pleaded not guilty during the trial.

Abortions and abuse are closely linked. Women and girls frequently are coerced or forced into aborting their unborn babies. And sometimes when they refuse, they are abused or killed. Studies of victims of sex trafficking also indicate they often are pressured or forced to abort their unborn babies so they can continue working.
