Wisconsin man accused of committing ‘crude abortion’ on sixth grader he raped
CRANDON, Wisconsin, April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A 33-year-old has been accused of committing a "crude abortion" on a girl in sixth grade who he raped.
According to an Associated Press report featured in local news, Matthew J. Christenson is alleged serial sex abuser of female minors in a rural part of Wisconsin. He also beat a male child, a criminal complaint from the Forest County District Attorney's office against him says. An ABC affiliate reported that Christenson is accused of doing the "crude abortion" at home.
"The complaint, filed this week, says one of the victims told investigators that Christenson impregnated her while she was in sixth grade, and later gave her an abortion," the AP reported.
Christenson is charged with sexual assault of a child, physical abuse of a child, repeated sexual assault of a child, and child abuse.
"The girls told investigators Christenson gave them alcohol and marijuana, beat them and threatened them," local media reported.
There have been other cases of rapists using abortion to cover up their crimes. For example, Ariel Castro in Ohio held three women hostage for more than a decade. He raped them, and when they were pregnant, he beat them until they miscarried.
