MURDER CHARGES AFTER A STILL BIRTH: A FIGHT ON BEHALF OF WOMEN
How terrible to deliver a still born, full term baby. Imagine the grief. Now imagine that immediately after, police arrest you and you spend the next 15 months jailed and charged with murder of that child.
That is what happened to a California woman, and she isn’t the first who has been persecuted for losing a child. Women all across the country are facing such a threat, and one organization, the National Advocates for Pregnant Women, is working to provide legal advocacy for them.
Samantha Lee is a staff attorney for the NAPW. She earned a degree in International Human rights and then graduated from NYU law school, served as a public defender representing parents accused of neglect or abuse and his working on cases like that of the California women.
Join us as we discuss particular cases, what motivates a prosecutor to pursue such charges, and what the implications are for not only pregnant women, but for all of us.
