This was in my little Connecticut paper today, buried on page B3, so it wasn't just in the Washington Times which some people dismiss: Iowa Woman Sentenced for Killing Husband
"Shanahan claimed she acted in self-defense when she killed her husband at the end of three days of beatings. She said he was angry because she was pregnant with their third child and refused to get an abortion."

I would not be surprised if he had coerced her to have one sometime before, in the 18 years he abused her. I don't condone what she did, but my heart aches for her.
