If the lives of preborn children continue to be devalued, the frequency of cases like this will only increase.

Jeffrey Smith is facing charges for attempted first-degree intentional homicide for allegedly trying to drug the mother of his child and abort the child against her will.

When the mother was 20 weeks pregnant, she found residue in her wattle bottle that she believes was caused by Smith putting something in her drink while she was in the bathroom. She called the police and explained that Jeffrey wanted her to abort her child, and she thought Smith was trying to force an abortion on her when she wanted to keep the child. When police investigated, they found Mifepristone, a drug used in the abortion pill regimen which prevents preborn babies from receiving nutrients. Smith was arrested but pled not guilty.

His trial was meant to be held on November 12 but has been delayed until January 14, 2020.
