A 24-year-old West Monroe woman is facing a charge of second-degree self abortion, a misdemeanor, and is accused of trying to kill her unborn baby, Oswego County Sheriff's deputies said.
The woman was arrested Monday. Deputies say that on April 4 the woman ingested several over-the-counter and prescription medications. Deputies say the woman was in her 13th week of the pregnancy at the time.
Imagine your confusion if you're this woman, having been brought up to believe that it's just a piece of tissue that you can flush away at any moment, and now you're accused of "killing an unborn baby"? Are we schizophrenic, or what?
