A Bethlehem man faces charges after he put a gun in his girlfriend's mouth during an argument over whether she should have an abortion, court records say.

Jonathan Stock, 28, of the 3300 block of East Boulevard was arguing with Tammy Smith because he wanted her to get an abortion, records say. Stock initially pushed Smith against a wall and choked her, lifting her off her feet, court records say. Stock then threw Smith to the ground, grabbed her hair and pointed a .380-caliber pistol her in mouth and head and said he was going to kill her, records say.

Stock eventually let Smith go and she was able to run from the house. Police were called and Stock was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, making terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person. He was sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail

This is just another example of Catholics showing extreme examples to coerce people out of abortion. Abortion does more good than bad. It is not taking a life, its improving the lives of both the child and the mother. They both would have been worse of had they child been born. In Africa, women don't have access to birth control, so does that mean that they should have 8 children, some of which shall starve? No! If she limits the amount of kids she has, her and her husband will better off, and might possibly be in a better situation later to have kids then. Thousands of children die every day from starvation. Not only do we need more birth control pills, but we need more abortion clinics. This guy that you mentioned is pretty crazy, but that doesn't mean all people who get an abortion are.
