Ok-it has been a long time since I have ranted, so I guess I am due...because this story just pisses me OFF
Suffolk Police have filed charges against a pregnant woman who was found shot in the stomach Thursday morning. Tammy Skinner is accused of shooting herself in the stomach, killing her unborn child.
The 22-year-old was due to give birth to a baby girl that day. The baby did not survive.
Skinner was taken to police headquarters around noon Tuesday, where she was charged. A $15,000 bond has been set.
Skinner is charged with causing an abortion, use of a fire arm in the commission of a felony, and filing a false report.
Illegally inducing an abortion is a class four felony, and is punishable by 2-10 years in prison and a fine of not more than $100,000.
A judge sealed search warrants in the case Monday.
She kills her baby...and she is charged with causing an abortion. This was a full term baby. She was due to birth that day. That woman shot herself in the stomach to purposely kill her baby and they charge her with an abortion.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!!???
murder? manslaughter?? yes...that would be good.
But an abortion???
She orginally filed a report stating that someone had shot her. They later searched the house and concluded she did it herself.
If she didn't want the baby, why not just birth it and take it to a safe haven? why kill it.
I just don't get people sometimes.
