Man Sentenced 14 Years for Tricking Girlfriend to Abort Fetus
John Andrew Welden was dating his girlfriend, Remee Jo Lee, for seven months when they found out she was pregnant. While she couldn’t wait to be a mother, John wasn’t as happy. In fact, he was trying to convince her that an abortion would be a better option. They visited John’s father, who’s an obstetrician, to confirm that she’s 6 weeks pregnant.
John proceed to tell Remee that his father found bacterial infection in her blood work and would need to treat it. He handed her a pill and told her it was Amoxicilin when in reality it was Cytotec which caused the miscarriage. In his guilty plea, John admitted to removing the lettering off the Cytoctec pill to conceal what it really was. He’s been sentenced to 13 years and 8 months jail time. After he’s released, he will have three years probation on top of having to pay $30,000 restitution to Remee. Wonder how he will be received in jail after harming an unborn baby.
