This is the generation that will abolish abortion

Man faces 20 years in prison for attempted murder of a fetus – Yet others pay to have their babies killed in same building

The Assiciated Press reports:
Ohio man faces 20 years in abortion-gunpoint case

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS, AP Legal Affairs Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio judge is ready to sentence a man charged under a fetal homicide law for taking his pregnant girlfriend to an abortion clinic at gunpoint.

Dominic Holt-Reid pleaded guilty in April to attempted murder, weapons and abduction counts after police said he pulled a gun on his girlfriend in October and forced her to drive to the clinic.

He faces 20 years in prison at a hearing Thursday before Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Patrick Sheeran.

Holt-Reid’s girlfriend did not go through with the procedure but instead passed a note to a clinic employee, who called police.

She has since delivered a healthy baby.

Prosecutors charged Holt-Reid using a 1996 law that says a person can be found guilty of murder for causing the unlawful termination of a pregnancy.

Of course we are happy this man is going to prison but are dumbfounded that the very people who called the police would have been happy to kill the baby if the mom wanted that.  Just because the mother of a child decided she does not want a child does not give her the right to say that child is not a human person.  In order for this man to be charged with attempted murder, the child in the womb must be a human person.

While this clinic called the police on this man, they are happy to accept money from others to kill their children.  I only wish all the other children being murdered their were  able to hand a notes to someone pleading with them to call the police.

While the children in their mother’s wombs cannot plead for help, we can do so on their behalf.  We know that thousands of children will be taken into so called “clinics” like this every day; only to be taken out in a trash can.  We know it is happening and we have a responsibility to stand up and be a voice for them.

Stand True – Raise Your Voice.

    Why is it MURDER if the male parent wants to kill the baby, but yet the female parent’s RIGHT TO CHOOSE? Both are the parents of the child. Once that child is born, both are responsible for him/her. So, shouldn’t it be murder if either parent opts for abortion? Nice double standard, Ohio!

    Tracey, you make an excellent point! It makes no sense at all that one is called murder and the other is called a “right to choose.” Our law obviously already knows what is right, and whether that baby is wanted or not does not change the humanity of that child. This double standard has to stop.

    i think where the guy went wrong was with the holding the mother at gun point…i believe in your choice and i do not see this as a double standard. It should be based on a couple’s decision and when one does not agree then someone needs to take responsibility for the child as did the mother in this case.
