"One in seven women in the UK have been bullied into either getting pregnant or having an abortion, The Independent can reveal.

An exclusive study found 14 per cent of women have experienced coercion over reproduction, having either felt pressured into conceiving or having a termination."

Full report at the UK Independent: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/pregnancy-coercion-reproduction-abortion-a8834306.html

Over the pond...

"New research found control over women's reproductive choices was "common", with one in four women in a series of American studies over seven years saying they had experienced it."

"U.S. women face abuse from partners over contraception choices."

"Women experienced abuse ranging from pressure over reproductive choices to deliberate sabotage of contraception to threats of violence if they did not comply, a review of studies in the journal “BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health” found."
