In a 2005 Guttmacher report examining the reasons why women abort, 14% said their "husband or partner wants me to have an abortion," and 14% said they received insufficient "support from husband or partner." Two percent said their "husband or partner is abusive to me or my children."Political conservatives are routinely accused of waging a "war on women." But to find the real war on women, many women need look no further than their own bedrooms.
Last year, a man in the United Kingdom killed himself after discovering that his girlfriend was planning to abort their child.
Forced abortion is not isolated to China and a few other countries where reproduction and state violence go hand in hand. It is widespread in America, too.

Legally, a woman's reproductive decisions are hers alone. But outside the courtroom, men boyfriends and husbands hold a lot of influence over those decisions. And that influence often manifests itself violently. Consider cases from this year:

Beyond these recent cases, there is evidence that many men resort to intimidation and violence to coerce women they've impregnated into aborting.

Castro is accused of beating and starving one captive until she miscarried, five times. The revelations of forced abortions have prompted prosecutors to consider seeking the death penalty against Castro.

A 2012 study by the Guttmacher Institute, a non profit research group, found that 7% of women who had abortions experienced sexual or physical abuse by the child's father in the year before her abortion. This compares with about 1% of women who suffer similar abuse in the general population. Seven percent might not sound like much. But a small percentage of a huge number is still a large number.

Studies reflect coercion
Violence Puma Velvet Red against pregnant women has become so prevalent that legislators have enacted laws to try to prevent it. In 2004, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which made it a separate crime to kill or injure an unborn child during the commission of any of more than 60 federal crimes, became law. Thirty eight states have similar statutes on the books, and 23 states apply them to first trimester babies.

A 2010 Guttmacher study found that more men than is commonly acknowledged exert "reproductive control" over their girlfriends and wives. Among women with abusive partners, more than 70% reported that their partners used verbal threats, physical aggression or birth control sabotage to force her to become pregnant, to abort or, in a surprising number of cases, both.
Several states have passed laws requiring abortionists to post signs in their facilities informing women that it is against the law for anyone to force them into having an abortion. A few require counselors to screen women to find out whether they've been coerced into aborting.
