Man convicted of attempted homicide in spiking of girlfriend's drink with abortion pill

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Fox Cities man charged with spiking his girlfriend's drink with an abortion-inducing drug was convicted of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child Wednesday in Outagamie County court.

The girlfriend of Manishkumar M. Patel, 45, didn't ingest the drink but miscarried weeks later.

The attempted homicide charge carries a maximum sentence of 60 years in the state prison system. Sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 9.

A host of other charges in that case and two other cases — one felony case and one misdemeanor case — were dismissed and read in as part of a plea agreement.

Patel, who was charged in 2007, forfeited a $750,000 cash bond and went on the run for nearly a decade. He was arrested in New York in January 2017.'

She didn't even drink the drink. Still, they threw the book at him. I don't agree with what he tried to do. But the law used to prosecute him -- if a woman aborts an "unborn child" before three months from conception, it's fine. Yet if a man attempts to induce an abortion in her, even during that time period, he has attempted to kill an unborn child. Yet she has not done so if she aborts? The fetus either is or is not an "unborn child". But the law seems to want it both ways. Contrast the penalty he faces with paternity fraud. Are women prosecuted for that? Not even.
