In Pennsylvania, police say a man offered his babysitter $100 to assault his ex-girlfriend and cause her to miscarry their unborn child. On Tuesday, John Frazier was arrested on charges of criminal solicitation to commit homicide of an unborn child and other offenses. However, he was released on bail pending his preliminary hearing on March 10th.
Thankfully, Pennsylvania law makes it a crime to cause the death of a baby inside a mother’s womb. The unborn victims law is one of dozens around the nation, according to Americans United For Life (AUL), which tracks pro-life legislation. AUL notes, “Clearly, fetal protection laws establish much needed legal protection for unborn children. While such laws do not directly impact abortion, they do cultivate an awareness of the value and rights of unborn children and foster public support for the protection of unborn children.”
According to the police report, Frazier asked his baby sitter neighbor for help after his ex-girlfriend refused to have an abortion or give the child up for adoption. The babysitter was appalled and immediately refused. In the past, Frazier physically abused his ex-girlfriend and sent her text messages saying he hated her and wished she was dead.
