December 6, 2011. Last week, a 20-year-old woman in New York City was arrested on charges of “self-induced abortion” and faces first-degree misdemeanour charges. Initial news reports indicate that she intentionally caused the miscarriage/abortion. The woman disposed of the foetus in what was probably the only way she could think of: wrapped in plastic bags and placed in the trash receptacle of her apartment building.
