In October of 2006, a nurse in Britain gave the chemical abortion drug misoprostol to a pregnant woman who was only in for an initial appointment. The woman later underwent a surgical abortion after experiencing pain and filed an official complaint, according to the Guardian.

A woman from the Pittsburgh area has been arrested for killing a pregnant woman and removing her child.
Authorities say a slain pregnant woman may have been alive and was possibly drugged when a baby was ripped from her womb, allegedly by a woman who tried to pass the infant off as her own.

The eviscerated body of 18-year-old Kia Johnson of McKeesport was found bound at the wrists and ankles with duct tape, and wrapped in a comforter and garbage bags.

Her partially decomposed remains were in the master bedroom of Andrea Curry-Demus, 38, who was charged Sunday with homicide, unlawful restraint and kidnapping, officials said.
The suspect was previously involved in attempts to steal newborns.

Police in the Chicago area are investigating an apparent self-abortion.
Baby boy Johnson was found unresponsive in the back seat of a vehicle at 708 W. 103rd St., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:20 a.m.

An autopsy Sunday revealed the boy died from asphyxia, the medical examiner's office said. His death has been ruled a homicide.
