Why are women who have lost their babies being investigated for a crime?

Police: why are they wrongly accusing women who have lost their babies of committing crimes?

Women say they have been “traumatised” and left feeling “suicidal” after criminal investigations lasting years in which they were suspected of illegally ending a pregnancy.

It seems they are being victimised for losing their babies after the 24-week window for termination.

Abortions after 24 weeks are only allowed if the woman’s life is in danger, if there is a severe fetal abnormality or if the woman is at risk of grave physical and mental injury.

But of course that does not mean a woman cannot lose her child for natural – and very often tragic – reasons, as the BBC has pointed out:

An unprecedented number of women are being investigated by police on suspicion of illegally ending a pregnancy, the BBC has been told.

Abortion provider MSI says it knows of up to 60 criminal inquiries in England and Wales since 2018, compared with almost zero before.

Some investigations followed natural pregnancy loss, File on 4 found.

Pregnancy loss is investigated only if credible evidence suggests a crime, the National Police Chiefs’ Council says.

Do we believe that comment from the National Police Chiefs’ Council?

We already know that the Metropolitan Police has been found to be institutionally misogynistic. Perhaps the rot has gone further.

This Writer tends to agree with Dr Jonathan Lord of abortion provider MSI, who said: “These women are often vulnerable and in desperate situations.

“They need help, not investigation and punishment.”
