According to the New York Post in a March 18 article, 34 year-old Shervaughn Remy, who was arrested on Valentine’s Day last year, pleaded not guilty to felony abortion – an offence punishable by up to four years in prison.

The woman told police that after she and Remy had sex, she felt such intense pain in her abdomen that she went to a local hospital, where a doctor removed two pills from inside her and identified them as the abortion drug Cytotec, according to a criminal complaint.

Several hours after seeing the doctor, she gave birth to the 14-week-old stillborn fetus.

“My client maintains his innocence,” defense attorney David Zelman said in Brooklyn Supreme Court, adding that the alleged victim told him she doesn’t want an order of protection or to press charges.

Remy was charged last year with abortion, a felony punishable by up to four years behind bars.

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

Crutcher, who wrote the report says, “The early feminist leaders in this country were openly opposed to the legalization of abortion.  They understood that legalized abortion has nothing to do with women’s equality.  Women don’t need surgery to be equal to men.  What abortion is, is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males.  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?”
