Montgomery County, Ohio police say a 25-year-old pregnant woman was allegedly assaulted by her boyfriend after he said he didn’t want the baby.
When neighbors found the woman she told them she she had been repeatedly kicked in the stomach by her boyfriend, 24-year-old Tanner “Devon” Hopkins and that she was “dying.”
At the time of the assault, the victim was seven months pregnant.
Hopkins has been arrested and charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide and felonious assault charges, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police say more charges could be filed since the victim lost the baby due to the assault.
This case follows a number of incidents this month where men assaulted their pregnant girlfriends when they refused to have abortions.
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.
A large volume of these cases has been compiled in a report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion.”
