Ice hockey player promised to pay woman $3 million to have an abortion

Canadian professional ice hockey player, Evander Kane, has been accused of promising to pay a woman $3 million to get an abortion.

The ice hockey player who plays for the San Jose Sharks is being sued by a woman for $6 million after Kane allegedly promised to pay $3 million for an abortion. After the woman, Hope Parker, had the abortion, Kane refused to give her the promised amount.

Parker aborted three of her unborn children with Kane, and according to bankruptcy court documents, Kane paid her $125,000 for the second abortion.

$125,000 for the second abortion and $3 million for the third

After the first and second abortions, Parker didn’t want to have another one and said Kane began “bullying” her before offering $3million to have a third abortion. Parker said she had the abortion in June 2018 but Kane never paid her the money.

Kane’s lawyer called the women’s claims “baseless both factually and legally”.

The bankruptcy judge in the case, Stephen Johnson described the case:

“[The] Plaintiff (Parker) was unwilling to terminate the third pregnancy until Defendant (Kane) offered her two to three million dollars to do so”, Johnson wrote.

“Then, on June 13, 2018, [Parker] sent [Kane] a text message of her lab results, which confirmed she had terminated the third pregnancy. When [Parker] requested [Kane] update her on the status of her payment, [Kane], for the first time, told [Parker] he was not going to pay her, stating: ‘I’ll have my lawyer contact you, I’m not dealing with this any further then’.”

Johnson commented: “I can infer from the complaint that Plaintiff falsely said he would pay … to abort the third pregnancy, and that he did so to deceive (her) into actually undergoing that abortion.”

Right To Life UK spokesperson, Catherine Robinson, said: “We should all be shocked by this dark deal by a man apparently willing to pay a huge sum of money to escape the responsibilities of fatherhood by aborting his own child. The horror here is not that he refused to pay. It is what he was paying for, whether or not the transaction was ever completed”..”

“For those of us who recognise and respect the life of the child in the womb, this case is deeply sad and wrong regardless of the sum of money and regardless of whether or not it was paid”.

Dear reader, 

Thanks to the support from people like you, in July, a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - to introduce abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth - failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.

We are currently facing major threats on four separate fronts:

  1. The abortion lobby is expected to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth. A similar law was introduced to New Zealand last year and recently released data shows that the country saw a 43% increase in late-term abortions in 2020.
  2. The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which will be receiving a Second Reading in the House of Lords on 22 October.
  3. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland and abortion campaigners are also running a large campaign to try and introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions to Northern Ireland.
  4. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. 

Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over this period has already made a huge dent in Right To Life UK's limited resources.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
