Man strangled girlfriend and forced morning-after pill down her throat
Police in New York state arrested a 44-year-old man who they say strangled his girlfriend and forced her to swallow a morning-after pill to abort their newly conceived child, reports LifeSiteNews.
At 7 p.m. last night, police with the Ulster County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call made by a woman's cell phone. The woman, they say, was unable to speak, because 44-year-old Thomas A. Pfeiffer was holding her in a chokehold and compelling “her to consume a pill that would cause an abortion.”
“We believe it was what they call a Plan B pill,” Detective Lieutenant Ed Brewster told local media.
Lt. Brewster said the woman called Pfeiffer after she took a pregnancy test that “came out positive.” Her boyfriend then drove to her home in Rosendale, in southern New York state, and an altercation ensued, he said.
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital, treated for minor wounds to the neck, but is “physically fine,” Brewster said.
Pfeiffer has been charged with two felonies: second-degree strangulation and second-degree abortion.
Pro-life leaders warned that actions such as these would be inevitable once the morning-after pill became legal over-the-counter, allowing sexual predators to erase their crimes and angry boyfriends to force women to abort children they would like to keep.
