Can you be forced to have an abortion?

Yes, you can, says Charlie Sheen's ex-fiance, who has filed a lawsuit claiming that he forced her to have an abortion.

As LifeNews reported:

Ex-fiance Brett Rossi said Sheen bullied her to abort their unborn child in 2014, ranting that she would “give birth to a retarded child,” according to People. Sheen also allegedly said he did not want the child to inherit HIV.

Reports say Rossi, who works in pornography, filed a lawsuit against Sheen this week, alleging assault and battery, emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence. She said the “Two and a Half Men” TV star also hid his HIV status from her.

Interesting. I wonder what Planned Parenthood would have to say about this case and the idea that you can be forced to have an abortion. Doesn't happen? A woman can always so no? Only those right-wing fanatics who are conducting the war against women would do such a thing?

I wonder if the clinic, in its prep, thoroughly explores whether the woman is being pressured, bullied or forced to have an abortion.

Of course, there's China, which until recently had a one-child only policy. Now the policy has been "relaxed;" you can have two kids. Still the question remains: If you are pregnant with your third child (instead of your second child as previously), does the government force you to have an abortion? And why aren't progressives making a stink?

  • I always reserve judgment on claims plaintiffs make in civil law suits. According to the article you linked, "In her lawsuit, Rossi describes first meeting Sheen on Nov. 1, 2013, after arriving at his L.A. home to have sex with him for $10,000. She says he forced her to sign an "illegal and unenforceable" non-disclosure agreement." All of this may be true, but I think I would like to see what either Sheen admits or a judge and jury finds.

  • Me too.

  • I reserve judgement also, but must consider the sources. It's something about the life choices of both parties that has to be taken with a large grain of salt. But undoubtedly, she may have made the best possible decision.

  • The fact that this happened to be about abortion has absolutely zero to do with the abortion issue. If I forced you to legally buy a gun against your will does that mean guns should be outlawed? That seems to be what you're saying.

  • In reply to Jimmy Greenfield:

    Nope, that's not what I'm saying. My point was that perhaps some abortion clinics are not as concerned about women's health as we are directed to believe. When I go in for my TURP, I am fully informed about the risks. Shouldn't that apply for all medical procedures, or is abortion an exception, as the abortion industry demands?

    How did this story lead you to this conclusion?
