A Kansas man was charged with 1st degree murder for causing the abortion of his girlfriend’s baby – without her knowledge. He didn’t want the baby so he bought the abortion drug, mifepristone, and slipped it into her pancakes at breakfast. She miscarried the child in January of this year.
He will face a trial for his actions.
While this story may seem sensational, it’s not rare. With the advent of various abortion drugs being so widely available and easy to buy for anyone, these kinds of stories will become more common.
Last summer, after the abortion drug Plan B was approved for over-the-counter sale for anyone, Students for Life of America went undercover to find out what would happen when an actor, posing as a 33 year old statutory rapist, attempted to buy Plan B to forcibly give to his 15-year-old girl victim and what would happen when the 33 year old admitted to pharmacists and checkout workers that he and his underage “girlfriend” needed the drug to cover up their illegal sexual relationship.
All of the drugstores let the man buy the drug, even though he asked specifically about slipping it into his girlfriend’s drinks, never mind that he was a statutory rapist.
Consider these stories:
- In 2007, a man in Wisconsin was charged with seven felonies and two misdemeanors, including attempted 1st degree murder of an unborn child, when he slipped his girlfriend an abortion drug and caused her miscarry twice.
- In 2012, Joshua Woodward of New York pleaded not guilty to four counts of attempted murder. Policy said he tried to cause a miscarriage in his girlfriend, who was 13 weeks pregnant, by applying a topical application of misoprostol while the couple engaged in foreplay.
- In 2013, John Andrew Weldon allegedly switched out the label on a bottle of abortion pills to make it look like a common antibiotic, Amoxicillin, that his girlfriend was taking at the time. She purportedly miscarried and Weldon could face life in prison without parole if he is found guilty of murder.
- In 2014, Shervaughn Remy purposely caused his 14 week pregnant girlfriend to lose her baby when he slipped her two abortion pills. She went to the hospital after having cramps and ended up delivering a stillborn baby.
These are horrible stories of men who refused to accept responsibility for newly created human beings and by all means, should be charged to the highest degree of the laws for their crimes.
Some don’t agree though, like the head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. When Florida tried to pass a law earlier this year to punish men who slip abortion drugs to their pregnant partners, she said:
“Instead, Florida Republican lawmakers have wasted taxpayers time and money by passing these extreme bills that further limit women’s reproductive rights. It is senseless and it’s wrong.”
Wow – “senseless and wrong” to punish men who give abortion drugs unknowingly to pregnant women? No, it is senseless and wrong that these drugs are so easily available and big abortion giants like Planned Parenthood and those liberal men and women in power who support them could care less about protecting women and more about the bottom line.
