By The Blaze. A couple in Ohio are facing charges after allegedly self-inducing a late-term abortion with mail-order medication from India and leaving their baby to die and putting the child’s body in a shoebox. . .
According to Hayes, Gillum took the pills while in her third trimester at either 28 or 29 weeks pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy in the bathroom of her and Mull’s apartment.
“At no time did either one of them ever call 911 or seek emergency medical treatment for the child,” Hayes wrote.
The next day, the two went to the hospital, where medical staff contacted law enforcement. Officers then went to their home and found the child’s body in a shoebox inside of a trash bag, Hayes said. The prosecutor also said that the two planned together to order the drugs and terminate the pregnancy, knowing Gillum was in her third trimester. . .
A child born prematurely at 28 or 29 weeks gestation has a very high chance of surviving outside of the womb if given proper medical attention. According to information from the University of Utah, the survival rate for premature babies born at 28 weeks gestation is between 80% and 90%.
