Ohio victims detail life in captivity; women "withstood repeated beatings"

CNN is learning much more about the conditions in the house where the three women were held captive for a decade.

One of the women, Michelle Knight told police immediately after she was freed that she became pregnant at least five times.
When Castro learned she was pregnant, he would, "make her abort the baby."

The report goes on to say Knight "stated that Castro starved her for at least 2 weeks, then he repeatedly punched her in the stomach until she miscarried."

How did these women survive?

OutFront tonight: Dr. Jeff Gardere, a Clinical Psychologist and Casey Jordan, a criminologist.
