The Dark Side of Deregulation: Coerced Abortion Incidents on the Rise

(Catalina Scheider Galiñanes. National Catholic Register).

An expectant mother should be thinking of baby names and all of the happy things associated with the birth of a new child — not fighting for her life and the life of her unborn. But that’s what happened to Louisiana mother Catherine Herring as the victim of an abortion-pill attack. “I was unwillingly and unknowingly poisoned with chemical abortion pills seven separate times by my husband,” she recalled in an email to the Register about her harrowing ordeal. “Our daughter miraculously survived with the quick action of a pregnancy hotline nurse.” Unfortunately, her case is not an isolated incident. States across the nation have passed recent legislation on coerced and unwanted abortions. The circumstances of these abortions coincide with the risks of abortion pills, which the Biden administration has deregulated.
