Homicide by an intimate partner is the leading cause of death among pregnant women.
The irony of the pro-life movement is they fail to realize homicide by an intimate partner is the leading cause of death among pregnant women.
For many abused women, abortion is the only means to survive.
If she does survive and gives birth, many batterers refuse to consent to adoption thereby permanently entrapping mother and child in a dire life.
To add to her trauma, it’s not uncommon for custody, including sole-custody, to be awarded to the charming and manipulative batterer. Just as they fooled their victim, they can fool the justice system as well.
Regardless of where the child primarily resides, the child learns to adapt to abuse and typically repeats the cycle as either an adult victim or an adult batterer.
Such perils are the unintended consequences of overturning Roe vs Wade.
Hopefully, with more awareness and education on these dynamics, the generational curses of intimate partner abuse can be broken. To learn more about the delicate dynamics of domestic violence as well as how pregnant women and the fetus are impacted, explore TrueloveHomes.org .
