Well, a good friend of mine is in a unhealthy relationship. They argue all the time and he often calls her bitch etc.
He is very traditional, whereas she is modern.
I think they are a bad match, but she wouldn't believe this.
Few weeks ago, he started strangling her in a fight.
He kept going until security came...
She is no still very attached to him and thinks to go back to him and forgive him
I would like to protect her, but I don't know how.
Should I report this to her parents?

As soon as any woman is abused, emotionally or physically, get out, stay out, stay away and use every legal tactic in the book to keep away. Any half-assed attorney will take a moment of weakness when she decides not to press charges or lets him back in as precedent for her exaggerating, claiming rape or other acts of violence as just another in a series if arguments that had two sides. Move out, don't argue, don't let him know where you are going, get a restraining order. If you give in once, you're opening the door to violence directed against you, your kids (if in picture), any future relationship (because he'll threaten to hurt either you, new BF or both), your family. It's a little painful now, it could be fatal later. Esp, absolutely esp. if there is alcohol or drugs fueling it. Pack a suitcase- or don't- but get out.0
