Father of Aborted Baby Gets Probation for Leaving Bullet at Abortion Clinic

A 21-year-old New Hampshire man who left a bullet at an abortion clinic where his girlfriend had just aborted their unborn baby has been sentenced to a year on probation.

“I left the bullet there because they killed my baby,” Joshua Paiva told police in Beverly, Massachusetts, according to The Salem News.

Paiva was sad about the abortion but accompanied his girlfriend to the abortion clinic because he wanted to be there for her, his lawyer told The Salem News. He left a 9-millimeter bullet on a tray underneath a window between an office and the lobby where documents are passed back and forth.

The incident occurred February 14. Paiva pleaded guilty last week to illegally possessing ammunition without a firearms identification card.
