A British student was found at her home dead after having hanged herself following terrible grief associated with an abortion.
Charlotte Coursier was found hanged at her home in Oxford in June. In March last year, Coursier had an abortion, telling her boyfriend Ben Fardell she had “murdered her child.” Fardell ended their relationship on June 10 last year.
Six hours later, when Fardell called her home, Coursier’s housemate answered her phone and discovered her lifeless body slumped in her bedroom. A coroner’s reported indicated she had taken her own life.
News of this devastating suicide follows on the heels of Charlotte Dawson, who achieved fame in Australia as a model and a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model, took her own life recently after an abortion took an emotional toll on her.
Abortion kills one and wounds another. Studies have shown that women who have abortions are 6 to 7 times more likely to commit suicide than women who give birth.
It’s time to stop the killing. It’s time to reclaim our humanity.
