AP: WOMAN TRICKED INTO MISCARRIAGE PLEADS FOR NEW LAW 6


BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Remee Jo Lee cries every day when she thinks about the baby she lost after her ex-boyfriend tricked her into taking abortion drugs.

It hits her when she sees pregnant women, or a diaper changing station in a women’s bathroom. She feels the pain when she walks through the children’s section of a department store.

And now she’s pleading with lawmakers to pass a bill that would have allowed the state to prosecute John Andrew Welden for the death of her unborn child.

“This has just been the most devastating experience for me. This never goes away. I deal with this every day,” Lee told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, rapidly twisting a facial tissue in her hands as she spoke through tears. The framed sonogram images of her unborn child sat on the lectern in front of her. “This has just been very, very hard and I never want anyone else to go through this ever again and I want the state of Florida to show that this is not acceptable.

    So, is the fetus a part of the woman’s body? Do you seriously believe that the right to control your own body gives you the right to kill someone else?

      As long as it resides in your body and the only way to disconnect from your body is by killing it ,then so be it .Sure,if there is a modality to extract the fetus from the body of the mother without killing ,but instead it is applied a method which kills the fetus ,then killing in this case could be considered murder.If there is not a such method ,then it is still justifiable homicide.

        Abortion is never justifiable. It’s the intentional killing of a human being that has done nothing wrong. Most of the time a human being that is placed in the mother’s womb via a consensual act. Parents have the responsibility to ensure the safety of their offspring. That responsibility should start when their offspring is created – at fertilization.

          Do parents not have an obligation to provide an ordinary level of care to their children? For instance, if we lived in an alternate reality in which all children needed regular donations of blood and bone marrow in order to survive, most people would not have a problem with making that a legal parental obligation, just like paying child support.

It always amazes me that pro-choice people fetishize bodily autonomy as the most important right that has no limits, when all of our other rights, such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and even the right to life itself have limits.

    I don’t think the word ‘miscarriage’ should be used in the title. I think it should be ‘abortion’ or “Woman tricked into taking abortificants pleads for new law”
