Some men go farther than merely insisting on abortion for their children, though:
Ventura, CA (LifeNews.com) -- Abortion advocates tell the public legalizing abortion is important to promote women's rights and that women should have control over their own bodies, and those of their unborn children. Two incidents in California and Australia show legal abortions frequently empower men to pressure their partners to have one.Luckily, both of these women and their babies survived the attacks against them. Others haven't been so lucky. A man who wants his wife or girlfriend to kill their baby may not have to go very far to make the leap to kill both of them, if she refuses to exercise her "choice" the way he wants her to.
In Ventura, California, a 22-year-old man is facing 25 years to life in prison for paying two men $500 to fake a robbery attempt and punch his pregnant girlfriend to cause a miscarriage and end the life of her baby in an abortion.
Olmos did not want to become a father and his girlfriend rejected his pressured attempt to get her to have an abortion against her will.
KABC indicates a Ventura County Superior Court Judge found Jaime Solis Olmos guilty on Monday on one county of conspiracy to commit murder and a second count of attempted murder. [...]
Meanwhile, in Australia, Tyrone Phillip Strong, 30, reportedly said "I'm going to kill this baby" as he attacked Kylie Long's stomach two days after he learned she was pregnant with her fourth child, who is his.
The Brisbane Times indicates Strong attacked Long after learning of her pregnancy and her decision not to have an abortion at his request.
Strong, from Kallangur north of Brisbane, pleaded not guilty of common assault and attempting to cause an abortion, the newspaper said.
