Tampa Man Tricks Girlfriend Into Taking Abortion Pill Saying It Was Antibiotics
A 29-year-old Tampa man named John Andrew Welden is now under investigation for tricking his girlfriend into taking an abortion pill killing their unborn child.
Welden is now facing 1st degree murder charges as well interfering with interstate commerce.
According to authorities, Welden switched out his girlfriends antibiotic pill with the abortion pill Cytotec.
"I was never going to do anything but go full term with it, and he didn't want me to," explained Remee Lee, 26, Welden's now ex-girlfriend.
Lee made an emergency trip to the hospital after she began bleeding and having abdominal pain. After doctors analyzed the girl and performed tests, they informed her that her babies heart was no longer beating.
She brought along the antibiotics that her boyfriend had given to her and the doctors told her that they were in fact not antibiotics, but abortion pills. The label on the bottle of pills was Amoxycillin.
