FIRST WOMAN IN U.S. CHARGED WITH FETICIDE - PURVI PATEL


The fetus was 24 or 25 months old when she miscarried (?) then 33 years old Purvi Patel, threw it in a dumpster. I don't like this AT ALL. But this is hardly the first time I've heard a woman (usually teenager) doing such a thing. So how is it the first woman CONVICTED represents a group that's maybe 4% of the population?

And the only other one charged was Asian American too? Could that be correct?

However, 25 months is a 6 month old baby.

Was this the oldest child ever to be disposed of in this way?

Could it have survived outside the womb with proper care?

I have more questions than answers.



PURVI PATEL CONVICTED IN INDIANA.

She was sentenced to 20 years
"Iyer says that the fact that the only two women charged with infanticide are Asian American is important to note because women of color often lack access to basic health care, counseling, and other reproductive health resources.

"Immigrant women of color, such as Bei Bei and Purvi, remain vulnerable to the exploitation of laws like these in a myriad of ways, as we have seen in how they have been treated by the state of Indiana," said Iyer. "The cultural issues that the prosecution decided to drag into this case reflect stereotypes about Asian-American women and reproductive health which may not necessarily be true in this case." "
