Boy hits pregnant girlfriend with a baseball bat gets community service

MOUNT CLEMENS -- A teenage boy convicted of striking his girlfriend with a baseball bat to end her pregnancy has been sentenced to 200 hours of community service at a pro-life pregnancy center, drawing objections from his lawyer and his family.

Macomb Circuit Judge Matthew Switalski on Thursday sentenced the 17-year-old Richmond teen to two years probation and community service at Compassion Pregnancy Centers, which has two locations in Macomb County.

The youth -- who pleaded no contest in August to hitting his 16-year-old girlfriend in the stomach with her consent to cause a miscarriage -- hugged the girl in the hallway outside the courtroom after the sentencing.

Society is going down the tubes at an astonishing rate. I know these things are going to happen, but it grieves me. There are millions of lives being lost because of the selfishness of these would be parents. They can have all the sex they want, but Lord forbid they have to bring the result of that action into the world and give it a chance to live.
