A Georgia woman who allegedly took an abortion pill she purchased off the internet to abort a five-and-a-half-month-old baby boy has been charged in the child’s death and abortion advocates have come to her defense.
According to reports published by a local media outlet, police say that 23-year-old Kenlissa Jones purchased Cytotec, from a source in Canada.
The drug, also known as Misoprostol, is promoted by abortion advocates in home abortion remedies online.
Reports indicate that Jones got a neighbor to take her to the hospital, but she delivered the baby boy in the car on the way.
Dougherty County police say that Jones’ baby boy died after about half an hour at the hospital and have now charged Jones with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug.
Jones’ brother, Rico Riggins, told WALB that he did not know his sister was pregnant.
