Interesting. How can you impose a 22-year sentence for harming a non-human blob of flesh?
Apparently the pre-born’s ontological status is dependent upon the desire to murder or not.
APPLETON – A man who was accused of putting an abortion-inducing drug in his girlfriend’s drink was sentenced Tuesday to 22 years in prison.
Manishkumar Patel, 45, was convicted in August of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child. His girlfriend didn’t ingest the drink, but miscarried weeks later.
Outagamie County Judge John Des Jardins also sentenced Patel to four years of extended supervision.
Patel was charged in November 2007, but spent about a decade on the run before he was arrested in New York in January 2017. He forfeited a $750,000 cash bond — posted by family and friends — when he fled.
