New UK study reveals alarming rate of coerced abortions
According to a new study out of the UK commissioned by the BBC, 1 in 20 women ages 18-24 have been given abortion pills without their knowledge or consent by men seeking to kill their pre-born children.
According to the survey of 1,000 women ages 18-44, 50% reported having experienced one type of “reproductive coercion” — which includes forcing someone into having an abortion.
This tragic news comes as no surprise to pro-life activists. Abortion is frequently a tool used by men to ensure that women can be sexually available to them without incurring the responsibility of a child.
When women become pregnant with children they do not want, it is common for men to exert some form of pressure — emotional, psychological, or even physical — to convince them to have the babies aborted.
With the pandemic making “at-home” abortions via pill more easily available, men have more opportunity to pressure or force women into abortions.
