Man facing charges over attempted abortion

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- A 26-year-old man in Sweden will face assault charges and abortion law violations after he allegedly slipped his pregnant girlfriend abortion pills.

The Local said that the unidentified man allegedly mixed some of the prescription pills into his girlfriend's food after learning she was pregnant, leading her to nearly suffer a miscarriage.

Once the woman ingested the pills, she required medical attention after becoming nauseous and starting to bleed.

The paper said the man will now face the charges in Vanersborg District Court in western Sweden's Vastra Gotaland County.
