Sexual assault in the U.S. abortion industry

The following is an edited news release from Life Dynamics, one of my favorite pro-life organizations:
    In recent years the subject of sexual assault and rape has come into the public spotlight, with movements like #MeToo leading the cause. Meanwhile, the tragic reality of rape and sexual assault inside abortion clinics has remained largely in the shadows.

    Earlier this month, Life Dynamics released a report titled America's Carefully Hidden Sex Scandal, the content of which is something the abortion lobby and mainstream media have intentionally been trying to hide.

    They understand that the image of women being sexually assaulted in abortion clinics would be a public relations nightmare for the 'pro-choice' effort. So today, when a woman makes such an accusation, the media will either ignore it altogether or simply identify the perpetrator as a doctor and omit any reference to abortion. But despite the media's collective effort to remain silent about this epidemic, word is starting to get out.

    Currently, the effort to help Life Dynamics educate the public has been championed by religious or conservative programs. Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, has recently been interviewed on several radio and podcast shows to discuss the issue.

    On The Catholic Current, Mark discussed with the show's host, Father Robert McTeigue, why the #MeToo movement and mainstream media have remained silent and how the victims of these assaults have simply been written off as collateral damage in the political war to keep abortion legal.

    This means that an unknown number of the thousands of women who walk into this nation's abortion clinics every day will end up in the hands of violent sexual predators, with the total number of victims reaching into the thousands.
