A Connecticut man has been found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder and being an accessory to murder after hiring a hit man to kill his pregnant girlfriend when she refused to have an abortion.

21 year-old Shamari Jenkins, was shot in the back in the murder for hire scheme after her ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Carlton “C.J.” Bryan (show below on the left ) convinced his friend, 26-year-old Matthew Allen Hall-Davis (shown below on the right) to murder the pregnant woman on April 29, 2013.

Prosecutors say that Bryan “did not want to be saddled with that child.”

Hall-Davis was eventually convicted of murder and weapons charges. He was sentenced to 70 years in prison and an additional five years for criminal possession of a firearm.

Below is a news story at the time of Bryan’s arrest:

According to reports, Hall-Davis shot Jenkins, who was four month pregnant, in the back of the shoulder as she sat in her vehicle in what Bryan orchestrated as a “high crime area” so police would not be suspicious of the shooting.

Bryan was in the passenger seat and was not hurt.

The bullet hit Jenkins’ shoulder and traveled through her torso, police said. She and her unborn baby boy were pronounced dead at the hospital.

Prosecutor Cathryn Krinitsky said that Bryan wanted Jenkins dead because she “previously decided to have an abortion but decided not to.”

Witnesses testified that Bryan had talked to them about his anger toward Jenkins, who wanted to have the baby, and how her refusal to have an abortion angered him to the point of wanting her dead.

For his part in the murder, Bryan faces a potential life prison sentence.

Sentencing is set for July 30.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc. has documented that violence against pregnant women who refuse to submit to abortion is not rare.

Under The Radar report pro-choice men force abortio

In the report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion,” Crutcher points out that, when Life Dynamics was able to obtain copies of police reports, indictments, court records or other similar documentation for the cases they found, they would almost universally show that when a perpetrator is confronted by an unwanted pregnancy, his first response is not violence but a demand that his partner have an abortion. When violence ensues, it is inevitably a reaction to her refusal to comply.

Adding to this is the fact that the leaders of the contemporary “women’s movement” are acutely aware of this situation and remain stone cold silent about it,” Crutcher states in the report.

For political and public relations reasons, those who most loudly proclaim “a woman’s right to choose,” have shown no interest in “a woman’s right not to choose.” On one hand, they may not approve of women being bludgeoned or killed for refusing to have abortions. But on the other hand, they have made it clear that they are willing to write-off these women as just collateral damage in the war to keep abortion legal,” he says.

Crutcher points out that early feminists who opposed abortion warned society that legalized abortion would become a mechanism for men like Bryan and those he lists in his report to avoid any commitments to the women whose bodies they use or any responsibility for the children they father.

Regrettably, that is what we see being played out in front of us today. American society has now devolved to the point where a male’s responsibility for an unplanned pregnancy he helped to create is often defined as a willingness to pay for half the abortion and provide transportation to the clinic,” Crutcher says.

The question is: How would the kind of men who rely on abortion as a safety net react when the women they impregnate are unwilling to jump into it?” he asks.

Pro-choice man on trial for murder of pregnant girlfriend with twins

Posted in pro-choice violence, Violence against women with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2015 by saynsumthn

Trial began this week in the stabbing death of a pregnant teen whose boyfriend allegedly killed her when she refused to have an abortion.

17-year-old Ryan Matthews is on trial for the murder of his 16-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Arrjiana Hill.

The girl’s younger brother found her murdered in her Texas home March of 2014.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Assistant Brazoria County District Attorney Travis Townsend told jurors he and fellow prosecutor Kurt Sistrunk would show that Matthews, 16 at the time, killed Hill at her family’s Pearland home during a tryst because he feared that his college and sports careers would be ruined if she gave birth.

According to Pearland, Texas police, Hill was pregnant with twins at the time of her death and a paternity analysis determined the Matthews was the father.

A local news report states that when Hill told Matthews that she missed her period he asked her if she “punched herself in the stomach.”

According to the police report at the time of the arrest, an examination of Matthews’ cellphone showed online searches relating to pregnancy, including how late a doctor could perform an abortion in Texas, how to cause a miscarriage and if having sex while pregnant is safe for the fetus.

Matthews texts Hill on Feb. 28, 2014, saying, “why risk our life’s education and my sports career?” by having a child.

He then urges her to have an abortion as one news outlet reports:

    On February 26, according to prosecutors, Hill found out through a home test that she was pregnant.

    It was confirmed by doctors the next day.

    Then, on February 28, Matthews texted Hill telling her to get an abortion saying, “…so it doesn’t **** up our lives.

    Then March 6, according to investigators, Hill told Matthews she was pregnant with twins.

    Matthews responded, allegedly by text saying, “WTF? That’s not good news“, “I can’t belive this is **** – ing happing to me.

March 21, the day Hill died Matthews texted her and urged her to meet him after school for a sexual encounter at her house.

The Houston Chronicle reports what happened next:

    Hill sends the last text she will ever write at 1:41 p.m., telling Matthews she is with a coach.

    The couple leave school together at 1:56 p.m. Video surveillance shows he is wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt, tan leather shoes and a multicolored backpack.

    At 2:02 p.m. a car driven by a friend arrives at the guardhouse of the gated Lakes at Country Place community carrying Matthews and Hill. They are dropped off at Hill’s parents house at 3203 E. Cedar Hollow.

    At 2:09 p.m. Matthews does a search on his cell phone for “Can you smash a baby in the womb?” and “Can you squish your baby in the womb.”

    There is no activity on Matthews phone for the next 34 minutes.

    Matthews’ friend picks him up at 3:02 p.m.

    Shortly after 4:22 p.m., Hill’s 13-year-old brother, Khistler, gets off a school bus and enters his home to find his parents’ room in shambles. He calls for his sister but gets no response, he testifies. Terrified, he calls his parents. His father discovers his daughter’s body in her room.

Matthews’ attorneys claim their client is innocent.

Matthews has been certified as an adult and has been charged with capital murder where he faces 40 years in prison if convicted.

Baby survives 15 minutes after birth but touches family who refused to abort her

Posted in Baby saved from abortion with tags , , , , , , , on September 19, 2014 by saynsumthn

Bonnie and Phill Baby 3Bonnie and Phil Walker discovered that their unborn child might die at birth and so doctors offered them an “option” which they found shocking.

During a routine scan, their daughter Grace was diagnosed with a serious birth defect called anencephaly, in which a baby is born without parts of the brain and skull.

They were told it was therefore not a “viable” pregnancy and were offered an abortion within the week.

It was that blunt”, said Bonnie Walker, who has four older children with husband Phil. He added: “There should never be a choice like that.”

Grace was born alive and the couple described that moment as “Happy sad tears.”

She survived about 15 minutes but they say those minutes touched them deeply.

There’s a purpose for every life, no matter how short,” Said Bonnie, “the wrong choice would have been to take her away without ever having seen her face.”

Phil called his daughter an angel, “We see her as a gift from God.”

Phil said that the reason they called their daughter Grace was that, “by the grace of God we had this time with her.”

Man Hired Hitman to kill Pregnant Girlfriend over Abortion Refusal, Pro-life group says violence is nothing new

Posted in pro-choice, Pro-choice law breakers, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2013 by saynsumthn

Shamari Jenkins was a few months pregnant on April 29 when she was shot and killed while driving in Hartford, Connecticut. Her unborn son was also killed.

The man who allegedly shot her was Matthew Hall-Davis, a friend of her boyfriend – 21-year-old Carlton ‘CJ’ Bryan, who was in the car with his girlfriend when the shooting happened.

But in a surprising turn in the case, Bryan may have actually been behind the shooting, according to court documents released Friday.

Apparently Bryan had asked Jenkins to get an abortion, and she refused. He told a friend that she was ‘trying to ruin his life and he wanted her killed.’

Bryan ‘begged’ Hall-Davis to shoot his 20-year-old girlfriend, according to his arrest warrant. Apparently he ‘wanted to stay with…his other girlfriend,’ Hall-Davis told the police.

The warrant goes on the explain the plan Bryan and Hall-Davis had for carrying out the murder.

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, says that violence inflicted on pregnant women by pro-choice men who want their pregnancy aborted is nothing new.

UnderTheRadar
Another recent example which received national attention was the arrest and indictment of a Florida man who tricked his pregnant girlfriend into taking abortion pills to abort her pregnancy. Authorities say that 28-year-old John Andrew Welden did not want to be a father, so when his girlfriend, Remee Jo Lee, got pregnant, Welden faked a prescription for an abortion pill, switched a label so the medication appeared to be a common antibiotic, and gave her the drug. The drug did its job. The unborn baby died. Now Welden, is facing the possibility of life behind bars without parole, charged with murder under a rarely used federal statute known as the “Protection of Unborn Children Act.”

Life Dynamics has collected data on a large volume of these cases and compiled the data in a report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion.”

Crutcher, who wrote the report, asks, “What happens when men use abortion as a sort of safety net? What do they do when the woman they’ve impregnated won’t jump into the net?”

Crutcher continues, “Our research shows that when a male displays these kinds of attitudes about his partner’s pregnancy, his first reaction will be to demand that she have an abortion. In almost every incident in which violence ensues, its motive will be that she refused to comply.”

The report points out that this kind of violence against women is not commonly reported by the media.

According to Crutcher, “When we were able to obtain copies of police reports, indictments, court records or other similar documentation for these cases, they would almost universally show that when a perpetrator is confronted by an unwanted pregnancy, his first response is not violence but a demand that his partner have an abortion. When violence ensues, it is inevitably a reaction to her refusal to comply. However, the media’s coverage of these incidents often contains no mention of abortion. Instead, they either portray women who are attacked for refusing to have abortions as women who are attacked for getting pregnant, or they characterize the incident as one of simple “domestic violence” in which the victim’s pregnancy is basically inconsequential.”

Life Dynamics also documents that the abortion lobby is aware of how common this problem is:

Crutcher states, “Over the years, we have acquired tape recordings of National Abortion Federation (NAF) conventions in which discussions about women being forced to have abortions were held. The prevailing attitude expressed in these sessions may best be described as one of “convenient indifference.” Attendees will acknowledge the problem’s existence and talk about it in disapproving tones, while making it clear that they feel no obligation to let it influence the way they deal with these women. Their philosophical position seems to be that, even if a woman chooses to have an abortion she doesn’t want because of threats from others, it remains within the “pro-choice” purview since she was still the one who ultimately made the decision. In fact, on the NAF tapes mentioned above, some abortion clinic employees can be heard paraphrasing this very argument and using it to justify their habit of looking the other way. It is a truly bizarre rationalization analogous to saying that women who submit to sexual relations at the point of a gun are not really being raped since, technically, they are consenting.”

Crutcher points at out that although there have been Herculean efforts by the abortion lobby to call for the protection of abortion providers against violence, they fail to make the same effort to protect these women from violence, “For political and public relations reasons, those who most loudly proclaim “a woman’s right to choose,” have shown no interest in “a woman’s right not to choose.” On one hand, they may not approve of women being bludgeoned or killed for refusing to have abortions. But on the other hand, they have made it clear that they are willing to write-off these women as just collateral damage in the war to keep abortion legal.”

Crutcher warns women about this growing violence by telling them, “If he’s going to be pro-choice about your baby, he might be pro-choice about you.”

Another pregnant woman and child killed by pro-choice boyfriend after she refuses to have abortion- SHAME !

Posted in pro-choice violence, Violence against women with tags , , , , , , , on January 25, 2012 by saynsumthn

1/25/2012

Thursday marked the third day of testimony in the case against 20-year-old Edward Jermaine Babbs.

Babbs is charged in the shooting death of 17-year-old Stephanie Rabsatt and her unborn son.

In October 2009, Rabsatt, who was 8 months pregnant, was shot in the head outside a Miramar Winn-Dixie.

Investigators said the killer also shot Rabsatt in the stomach, severing the umbilical cord.

Babbs was believed to be the father of the unborn child.

Prosecutors claim he killed Rabsatt because she refused to have an abortion.

Pro-abortion man stabs pregnant girlfriend to death for refusing his abortion demands

Posted in pro-choice, Pro-choice law breakers, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 8, 2011 by saynsumthn

Houston police have arrested a 19-year-old man who they say stabbed a woman to death last year and then abandoned her body in a ditch, all because she refused to abort his child.

Joseph Mike Devia, who was in Chicago after enrolling in the Navy, was arrested Wednesday morning, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Court documents show Devia has been charged in the August 2010 death of Omoyeme Obehi Erazua, who was found in a ditch on the far west side of town in the 10500 block of Richmond.

Erazula had been staying at a shelter, and tests showed she was pregnant, and DNA tests all but prove Devia is the father.

Investigators found text messages indicating Devia knew he was the father and wanted her to have an abortion. When they interviewed him, he said he did not know her “very well,” according to court documents.

Blood on the woman’s clothes also matched Devia’s DNA, police say.

Accused killer says abortion refusal prompted deadly struggle

Edmonton Sun, Canada

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Refusing to agree to abort their baby triggered an argument with her boyfriend that led to a deadly fight, the woman accused of the fatal stabbing testified Thursday.

Melinda Morin said her on-again, off-again boyfriend Barry Neil Godwin became incensed when she refused to have an abortion after she became pregnant with his baby last year.

She said he had packed her bags to leave on the morning of Nov. 10, 2009, then picked her up downtown when she called him and they went back to his northeast home.

A heated argument ensued, she said, when she told him she planned to keep the child once it was born.

I told him I didn’t want to go for an abortion. I’d keep the baby and I wouldn’t bother him. I’d take care of it myself,” Morin, 29, told her lawyer Mitch Stephensen during her second-degree murder trial. “But he didn’t want to know there was a kid out there that was his. He was upset and he wanted me to have an abortion. No way around it. So I was trying to leave.”

The child was born on July 1.

She said that morning Godwin kicked her in the stomach, grabbed her and put her in a choke hold, threw a knife at her at the bottom of the stairs, attacked her and grabbed her by the hair, trying to pull her upstairs. She said he then kicked the door closed so she couldn’t leave.

“He was coming towards me. I was scared. He was attacking me. I’ve never seen him so angry, the look in his face,” she testified, noting she then picked up the knife from the floor. “I was at the bottom of the stairs. That’s when I looked at him, saw the knife in his hand. I stabbed him and he collapsed.”

Morin claims she was acting in self-defence.
