A few years ago, Life Dynamics, Inc. a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas documented that violence inflicted on pregnant women by pro-choice men who want their pregnancy aborted is nothing new.

A large volume of these cases has been compiled in a report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion.”

So, it is no shocker that today on the Life Dynamics’ Blog they have posted stories of men who attacked women for refusing abortions and in one case, because the procedure took too long.

From Life Dynamics’ Blogs:

An Indiana pro-choice man has been charged with attempted feticide after giving his pregnant girlfriend an herbal supplement known to cause miscarriages.

25 year-old Jarod Rebuck spent Christmas in jail, after the victim said she smelled a strange odor in her drink and grew suspicious.

Rebuck had allegedly spiked the drink and the victim, who was 4 weeks pregnant, contacted police after she found Google searches on his cell phone for “ways to cause a miscarriage,” according to WRTV.

Life News is reporting another act of pro-choice violence on a pregnant woman, this time a man shoots his girlfriend for refusing to take abortion pills.

    A man who worried his girlfriend may be pregnant shot her in the head because she refused to take the morning-after pill, which he believed would either prevent her from becoming pregnant or end the life of her developing unborn child shortly after conception.

    Breyana Lewis was reportedly shot in the head and local police report that, after answering an emergency call, they found Lewis with bullet fragments in her head. Lewis told officers with Las Vegas police’s Violent Crimes Section that she had been having a sexual relationship with Myrick for two months when the altercation happened.

    Gregory Myrick, 21, was taken into custody along with Daquesha Fowler, a 20-year apparently in a love triangle with Myrick, with Fowler allegedly shooting Lewis because she refused to take the pill.

Shortly after receiving medical treatment at the hospital Wednesday, a Burlington woman was arrested on allegations she tried to abort her pregnancy because she was mad at her husband.

Christine May Taylor, 22, is charged with attempted feticide, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

According to Iowa law, feticide is when a person “attempts to intentionally terminate a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person, after the end of the second trimester of the pregnancy where death of the fetus does not result.”

Burlington Police officers were summoned to Great River Medical Center late Tuesday night after Taylor reportedly told a nurse she intentionally fell down the stairs of her home because she wanted to get rid of her unborn child. She also allegedly told a doctor she did not want her baby.

It is unclear how far along she is in her pregnancy.

Authorities said Taylor and her husband, who lives in Maryland, have not been getting along. The husband allegedly told his wife over the phone he did not love her anymore and the only reason he is with her is because of their children.

After hanging up the phone Tuesday, Taylor reportedly told police she purposely fell down the stairs to get rid of the baby because she did not want to have any more children with her husband.

Information on how many children the couple have was not available.
