Police: Doctor Choked, Forced Woman To Swallow Abortion Pill
A New York doctor choked a woman and forced her to swallow a pill that could cause an abortion, after she told him she was pregnant, according to police.
[su_center_ad]According to the Associated Press, The Ulster County Sheriff’s Office said that deputies responded Wednesday night to a “no voice” 911 call from a residence in the town of Rosendale.
44-year-old Dr. Thomas Pfeiffer, a licensed anesthesiologist from Red Hook, had choked the woman and forced her to swallow a pill that could cause an abortion after she told him a home pregnancy test had come out positive, according to authoriites.
Pfeiffer was charged with strangulation, assault and abortion in the second degree, or committing an “abortional act,” according to the AP.
Pfeiffer was taken into custody and is being held on $50,000 cash bail.
The woman was treated at a local hospital and released.
There were no details on her relationship with Pfeiffer.
This is totally the opposite of “pro-choice.” [su_csky_ad]
