On May 24, 2018, a woman in Kern County, California gave birth to a dead baby with a fractured skull after 30 weeks of pregnancy. Medical staff noted there was “severe bruising” on the woman’s stomach, which she said was the result of a fall while mopping.
In an interview with the police, the woman confessed to being consensually punched at least ten times in the stomach by her boyfriend until she stopped feeling the baby move, with the intent of killing the baby. The boyfriend denied any involvement in the murder. The would-be parents, who are remaining anonymous, have not yet had charges filed against them.
Deputy District Attorney Gina Pearl said in a phone conversation, "We're actively reviewing it. It's a unique case. We're still investigating. There's a lot of different angles." In the penal code, murder is defined as the "unlawful killing of a human being, or a fetus, with malice aforethought."
According to the law, murder charges in this case would be fully justified.
"We can prevent future cases by offering greater access and even funding for abortions, safe and legal abortions, not induced miscarriages," said Jennifer Bloomquist, a founder of Pro-Choice Kern County.
It's horrific Bloomquist is trying to use this case to promote abortion, allowing them to kill their children in abortion clinics.
“This case is not about ‘greater access and even funding for abortion.’ It’s about a dead baby girl, nonsensical inconsistencies in the law and our sinful, broken world,” said Marylee Shrider, Executive Director of Right to Life Kern County, in an interview with Human Defense Initiative
“Authorities struggling to determine if a crime has even been committed here is deeply disturbing and speaks volumes about the current culture and who we are as people. And what it’s saying is dark, ugly, and shameful.”
“[Bloomquist’s comments were] appalling, but not altogether unexpected,” continued Shrider. “Appalling because, according to police reports, the mother was complicit in her own beating, yet Bloomquist’s sympathies appeared to be for the mother and some imagined lack of abortion access — she made no reference to the dead child at all. Not unexpected because in acknowledging the child’s brutal death she would have had to affirm the baby’s humanity and she clearly wasn’t going to do that if she could help it.”
The pro-abortion movement will try to use this incident to make murder more accessible. Why not focus on the bigger problem — the murder itself — rather than where and how it happened?
Meanwhile, Shrider also has ideas as to how to stop these tragedies. When asked how these things could be prevented, she said, “To finally acknowledge as a society that preborn children are persons and full-fledged members of the human family, deserving of the same right to life as the rest of us. Perhaps with Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s imminent retirement, President Trump can continue to build a court that will support the right to life for every American.”
