Couple kidnaps adult daughter to force her to abort

from the WorldMag Blog.

"Her parents chased her out into the yard, grabbed and tied her hands and feet together," Salem Police Officer Sean Marino wrote in a court affidavit. "Katelyn states that her father then carried her to their car and they headed toward New Hampshire." Why the grab-and-go? Katelyn's parents were upset that she was pregnant by a man who had been jailed; they planned to force her to abort the baby. Katelyn, 19, escaped Friday at a shopping center and called police, who arrested her parents, Nicholas Kampf, 54, and Lola, 53, of North Yarmouth, Maine. Investigators said rope, duct tape, scissors and a .22-caliber rifle were found in the Kampfs' Lexus and Nicholas Kampf had a loaded .22- caliber magazine clip in his pants pocket. The elder Kampfs were jailed on a kidnapping charge and were being held on $100,000 bail each. In light of today's abortion laws, it is ironic that if the Kampfs had successfully forced Katelyn, an adult who apparently wanted her child, to abort, a second charge might have been something on the order of murder.

Update: It's worse: The Kampfs, who are white, allegedly wanted to force their daughter to abort because the father is black.
