    Police say the girl, who's also in custody, asked for the pummeling to force miscarriage; fetus survives

    May 22, 2009

    NAPLES, Utah — A man in Utah was charged Friday with attempted homicide in the beating of a pregnant teenager who police say asked for the pummeling in an effort to force her to miscarry her 6-month-old fetus.

    "I haven't decided who's more at fault," Mark Watkins, police chief of Naples, 130 miles east of Salt Lake City, said. "She was just as cold as the assailant — we're not going to treat her as a victim."

    Thomas said Harrison is expected to appear in court Tuesday and faces one to 15 years in prison if convicted.

    Harrison pummeled the girl's abdomen in an effort to cause a miscarriage, Watkins said.

    "Her intention was, in fact, to abort the child — to terminate the pregnancy," he said.

    The fetus survived, but doctors won't know for certain what injuries it may have sustained until it is born.

    Sad that the girl thought she had no other options than to ask for a beating 6 months in. If she had appropriate medical care she would've been advised of her options around the 6 week mark.

    Ya, she should have been told of the right time to kill her baby.

    Abortion is legal in Utah. What options did she not have?

    Actually, you do realize that those who want an abortion have to get counseling first, the doctors would have done a check to see if she was in the right frame of mind, and if not, they would have been able to prevent this tragedy from happening. So yeah, if it was more regulated then ones like this would be less common, and abortion itself would be less common.

    Why do liberals want us to make believe they are in favor of fewer abortions? They see nothing wrong with them.

    Listen up liberals: Killing innocents is murder.

    Liberals are all for killing unborn babies yet they want to do away with the death penalty for convicted murders.

    Abortions are cheaper than raising an unwanted baby.

    Life in prison is MUCH cheaper than the death penalty.


    Who's the fiscal conservative now?

    You might be right, but...

    .... she was obviously pretty fucked-up in the head to do something idiotic like that...
