‘DIY’ abortions cover up 14 years of sexual abuse

A father has been arrested accused of performing multiple ‘DIY’ home abortions to hide crimes of sexual abuse committed on his daughter and stepdaughter.

Jason Daniel Goodwill was taken into custody last week and now faces more than 20 charges, including rape, corruption of minors and “involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child”.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the father’s campaign of abuse is alleged to have lasted 14 years and stems back to 2006 when his stepdaughter was just 7-years-old.

Authorities opened an investigation earlier this month after they were called to UPMC Hamot Children’s Care Clinic over the suspected child abuse of the victims.

The 12-year-old daughter was taken there for testing and observation after revealing to her 20-year-old step sister that she was being sexually abused by Goodwill.

According to the criminal complaint, obtained by Erie News Now, the now 20-year-old stepdaughter told investigators she had also been sexually abused by Goodwill, starting when she was approximately 7 years old.

As a result of the abuse, the stepdaughter became pregnant on multiple occasions. Recalling the distressing events, the 20-year-old said Goodwill would inject her with a harmful chemical to induce labour so he could abort the pregnancies.

Despite this, the stepdaughter gave birth to a child in 2014, who died at five-months-old and was buried in the back garden of the family home.

Investigators told Erie News Now they had recovered evidence on the property in connection to the death of a child, after carrying out a search warrant at the home on 12 May.

‘DIY’ home abortions are now temporarily allowed across the UK following an incredible double U-turn from the Government, which went against its own warnings.

The very substantial change, which has been made without any public consultation, parliamentary scrutiny or debate, means women will be left to deliver their own dead unborn child at home without direct medical supervision.

Additionally, it opens women and children up to coerced abortions and makes it easier for men to gain access to dangerous abortion drugs.

Previously, abortions could only take place in hospitals or abortion clinics approved by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

Under the new temporary policy, doctors will be able to prescribe mifepristone and misoprostol over the phone or video platforms such as Facetime or Skype, meaning they will be left to pass their unborn child at home without direct medical supervision.

Last week, a woman and her unborn baby died after taking ‘DIY’ home abortion drugs.

According to the Mumbai Mirror, the woman’s husband, with the help of his parents and a friend, obtained the abortion drugs from a medical representative – all have now been “booked” with an intent to cause miscarriage by police in the Indian region of Kashimira.

In the UK, a legal challenge against ‘DIY’ home abortions has been launched by the Christian Legal Centre.

The case, which is backed by a healthcare professional and former Government minister Ann Widdecombe, suffered a setback this week when the High Court upheld the UK Government’s decision to allow ‘DIY’ home abortions.

However, the Christian Legal Centre have announced they will appeal the decision.

Right To Life UK has launched tools in England, Wales & Scotland which makes it easy for residents to contact their local representatives and ask them to revoke the dangerous ‘DIY’ abortion decision in their respective countries.

Ask your local MP, AM or MSP to revoke the dangerous ‘DIY’ abortion decision!

In Northern Ireland we have a separate tool calling on MPs to vote against the extreme abortion regime imposed on the province.

A spokesperson for Right to Life UK, Catherine Robinson said:

“This story highlights one of the significant risks behind this dangerous and reckless change in policy.

“These new regulations, which we’re implemented without any parliamentary scrutiny or debate, put vulnerable girls at greater risk of sex-trafficking and child-sex abuse as ‘DIY’ abortions can be used by their abusers as a means to more easily cover up their abuse.

“Thepolicy change by the Government goes against the very argument previously made by the abortion industry who argued that abortions should be provided at approved locations to protect women from abuse and coercion. By encouraging women to have abortions at home or other locations, the UK Government have put the health and safety of women at risk.

“The UK Government must immediately repeal these changes to allow proper democratic procedures to be undertaken, but more importantly, to protect the health of thousands of women across the country.”

Dear reader,

Earlier this year, abortion campaigners brought forward an amendment to the UK Government’s flagship Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill that would have introduced abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth (including sex-selective abortion).

Thanks to the support from people like you, this amendment did not go to a vote and pass, but we expect the abortion lobby to make another attempt to introduce this extreme abortion law change shortly.

This would be the single biggest change to abortion legislation since 1967 and would leave England and Wales with one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world.

Please sign the petition to Boris Johnson, asking him to ensure that his Government does everything in its power to stop the introduction of abortion up to birth.
