An Australian woman and her husband were paid $1,000 by pro-life demonstrators not to go through with a planned abortion, reports The Age.
The paper, quoting abortion clinic officials, says a group of pro-life activists approached the middle-aged couple as they were approaching the Marie Stopes clinic in Brisbane, Australia, last month.
A clinic staffer says the couple, who reportedly were having financial difficulties, were given “false and misleading information” about the effects of an abortion on future fertility, complications associated with the procedure and the risk of breast cancer, according to the report.
Clinic personnel found out about the incident when the woman two weeks later went to the Children by Choice facility for counseling.
The pro-choice activists condemned the practice of paying a woman to bring her baby to term.
It would be just so such more ethical for the couple to pay them to kill it instead.
