An Indiana pro-choice man has been charged with attempted feticide after giving his pregnant girlfriend an herbal supplement known to cause miscarriages.
25 year-old Jarod Rebuck spent Christmas in jail, after the victim said she smelled a strange odor in her drink and grew suspicious.
Rebuck had allegedly spiked the drink and the victim, who was 4 weeks pregnant, contacted police after she found Google searches on his cell phone for “ways to cause a miscarriage,” according to WRTV.
This week, Rebuck appeared in court where his bond was set at $20,000.
In an interview with police, Rebuck said he was “not in a position to have children financially or mentally.” He also admitted to purchasing a bottle of Clary sage, which can lead to miscarriage if ingested early in a pregnancy.
Police reports said that a blood test performed at a hospital confirmed that the victim was still pregnant.
If convicted of the Level 3 felony, Rebuck faces a penalty of three to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
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.”
In the report, author Mark Crutcher warns women, “If you are female, before you jump into bed with someone, it would be a good idea to find out his position on abortion. After all, you don’t want to be like the women listed here and find out the hard way that the kind of man who can be pro-choice about your baby could also be pro-choice about you.”
