The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has determined that the rights of a 20-year-old woman were violated when her parents forced her to have an abortion in 2010. At the time, the police did not prosecute the parents because they determined that they were acting in their daughter’s best interest.

TRENDING: Have we earned the right to be American?

Court documents in the case, S.F.K. v Russia, detail the events: “On 1 May 2010, the applicant’s parents took her to a hospital to undergo an abortion; the applicant only found out that this was their intention on the way to the hospital. According to the applicant, she protested strongly and cried, but her father hit her on the head and threatened to beat her and throw her out of the car in order to make her miscarry.”

Further information states, “The medical intervention [abortion] was carried out by a duty doctor at a public hospital, even though the applicant had made it clear both to her parents who forced her and then to medical personnel that she wished to keep her pregnancy.” Though the woman convinced her brother to call the police, they declined to charge the woman’s parents and the hospital because they determined that there was “no malicious intent.”

In ruling in the woman’s favor, the court found that the forced abortion was “an egregious form of inhuman and degrading treatment which had not only resulted in a serious immediate damage to her health – that is the loss of her unborn child – but had also entailed long-lasting negative physical and psychological effects.”

The case highlights a little-discussed fact — that studies appear to show that the majority of abortions are coerced. One study has found that as many as 64% of abortions are coerced, and in many cases, like this one, that pressure was in the form of physical violence. Forced abortion gets even less attention, though it too occurs often. Just recently, Rep. Cori Bush revealed that she was forced into an abortion at the age of 19, even though she told both the nurse and the abortionist that she had changed her mind. Other women have spoken out about being ignored and then forced into abortions that they didn’t want.

This international ruling plays an important role in highlighting that abortion is not always the woman’s choice and that there can be ramifications for forcing a woman to abort against her will. It also recognizes the trauma that can occur over the loss of a preborn child. Hopefully, it will discourage doctors and hospitals from committing these heinous crimes and instead get women the help that they need and deserve.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
