Police: Ohio Man Forced Girlfriend into AbortionFacility at Gunpoint
By Kathleen Gilbert
COLUMBUS, Ohio, October 7, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An Ohio man has been charged with kidnapping after police say he tried to force his girlfriend into having her unborn child killed through abortion after she had resisted undergoing the procedure.
Columbus police say that Dominic L. Holt-Reid drove his girlfriend, Yolanda Burgess, to Founder's Women's Health Center Wednesday morning while holding her at gunpoint. Holt-Reid allegedly became angry with Burgess after she refused to go through with the procedure scheduled for 9 a.m. that morning.
According to police, after Holt-Reid and Burgess dropped off their 4-year-old son at school, Hold-Reid pulled the handgun from the glove compartment of Burgess' vehicle. Police were notified by an abortion clinic worker to whom Burgess had slipped a note indicating her distress.
Holt-Reid, who was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, is being detained in the Franklin County jail and is scheduled to appear in Franklin County Municipal Court Thursday morning.

I am sure the abortion clinic would have done it anyways.
Pro-Lifers had to get a restraining order against the boyfriend so that the woman (girl) was not forced to have an abortion.
There is one other aspect of the story -- the woman (girl) had a broken arm. It is unclear if the boyfriend had anything with that or not.
Well, I never thought I’d give credit to an abortion clinic worker, but evidently instead of going ahead with the abortion, she called the police who came and arrested the boyfriend.
Let’s give credit where credit is due. A lot of abortion clinics COOPERATE with rapists and boyfriends who bring women there and force them to have abortions.
In this one case, at least, someone did the right thing.
So, by definition he was a Republican, right? /sarc
Nice name there.
How can you say that when they clearly didn't?
Police were notified by an abortion clinic worker to whom Burgess had slipped a note indicating her distress.Do you need to hire someone to stand over your shoulder and read articles for you? Your comment defies logic.
There was one other documented incident like this. I don’t remember exactly when or where it happened, but it was a few years back. In this case, it was a mom who tried to force her daughter to get an abortion by threats to shoot her! She drove the girl to the clinic, and threatened her w/a gun, if I remember it right.
To her credit, a lady at the clinic called police, and the woman was arrested! The girl and her mother did keep in contact, but the girl was removed from the house. The mother went to jail, and the girl had her baby after all.
That’s good to hear.
It’s all too common for young girls to be forced to have abortions by their parents or their boyfriends. And ordinarily the abortion clinics are only too happy to cooperate, although it frequently involves concealment of statutory rape.
I agree. At least the woman had the ethics to call the police.
I once saw a mother literally drag her late teenage daughter into an abortuary in New York City. The girl didn’t come out during the time we were there, so I assume they carried out the abortion on her. (Seeing mothers forcing girls to abort is quite common, btw.)
