Please read the story below. This young teenager was coerced into having an abortion. As a fellow victim of coerced abortion, I truly sympathize with her. Nick Cannon’s mother ran away from an abortion clinic to keep her baby. If that clinic and doctor had had their way, Nick would be dead today! Women are being coerced into having abortions every day. African American women are the most targeted group in America for coerced abortions. Women are told to shut up and it will be over soon. Women have been sterilized, forced into abortion. There are so many stories. Please visit www.silentnomoreawareness.org for testimonies. See maafa21.com! Feminine Care? What a joke! The girl probably expressed doubts from the moment she stepped in their door. The coaxed her into it for the money. To say that this doctor is a prudent practitioner is an OUTRAGE!

FLINT, Michigan — A teenager is accusing a Flint abortion doctor and his assistant of holding her down and covering her mouth as the doctor forced her to have an abortion after she screamed for them to stop.
In a lawsuit filed in June, the teen said she came to WomanCare of Flint, also known as Feminine Care Center, for an abortion on April 9, 2008, but alleges that she changed her mind before the doctor started the procedure.

Local and national anti-abortion activists are rallying behind the lawsuit, claiming this is one of many wrongdoings by the doctor.
The doctor’s lawyer, Steve Weiss out of Bloomfield Hills, said the doctor was well into the procedure when the teen expressed misgivings, and he had to complete it “for her safety and well being.”
“He’s a prudent practitioner who follows all the right guidelines,” said Weiss. “I think it’s just a matter of people that are anti-abortion trying to create something where it isn’t there.”
In a court filing, the doctor said the surgical instrument was already in her uterus, her water was ruptured and she was bleeding when she changed her mind. Weiss said this claim is corroborated by witnesses.
The doctor, who owns several abortion clinics in Michigan, is a frequent target of criticism in pro-life circles, including Web sites dedicated to tracking accusations made against the doctor.
President of Operation Rescue Troy Newman said nationally, pro-life activists have been following this particular doctor for a number of years because he is “one of the most despicable abortionists in the country.”
“Unfortunately, abortion doctors, and this one in particular, have been notorious for being nothing more than a butcher,” he said.
In the lawsuit, the teen claims that she screamed, “Stop, stop, I don’t want this,” before the procedure, but he had his assistant hold her down and cover her mouth as he went through with the abortion, according to court documents.
She was six weeks into her pregnancy and has since been admitted to Hurley Medical Center because she was suicidal after the abortion, according to court documents.
Judy Climer, president of Flint Right to Life, has already contacted the teen’s lawyer and said her organization hopes more women who have been forced into abortions will come forward because “it happens a lot.” She plans to attend court hearings and write the judge to support the case.
“I want to support the attorney and this mother in every way that I can because it’s not an easy thing to step forward and expose this,” she said. “She’s obviously very scarred from this.”
The teen is seeking damages “far exceeding” $25,000 because of severe emotional stress, mental anguish and additional medical treatment because of the abortion. The lawsuit was filed June 12, 2009 in Genesee Circuit Court.
The lawsuit also alleges the doctor mistreated the teen because she is a young black woman, claims the defense calls “ridiculous, salacious and wrongfully defamatory,” according to court documents.
