NBC New York: Police Investigate Report of Fetus in Trash Bag
Police are investigating a report of an apparent human fetus found inside a trash bag on a Queens sidewalk Wednesday evening.

A neighbor in East Elmhurst called 911 after spotting a black trash bag in front of her home at 99th Street and 31st Avenue.

She told police she kicked the bag, then reached in and saw a jar containing what looked like a human fetus.

More than 100 Irish psychiatrists have signed a statement saying that abortion shouldn't be legalized for threat of suicide. 
Dr McCabe said: "I am not surprised that so many of our colleagues agree that the proposed legislation is flawed. As members of the medical profession, we have a duty to our patients to adopt best practice and an evidence-based approach to everything we do.

"The fact is that there is no evidence that abortion is a treatment for suicidality in pregnancy and may in fact be harmful to women. The Government must take this into account and reconsider its proposals."

A Georgia man has been charged in the death of his girlfriend and their unborn child.

Carlos Jerome Simpson was indicted Tuesday by a DeKalb grand jury on charges of murder, felony murder – killing someone while committing a felony – aggravated assault and possession of a gun during the commission of a felony.

Simpson, 23, allegedly shot and killed Shikira Dunson outside his home on Feb. 18.

The 20-year-old Dunson was five months pregnant, so prosecutors added the charge of feticide, defined by Georgia law as willfully and without legal justification causing the death of an unborn child by any injury to the mother.

Another man charged with killing his wife and unborn child now faces two 1st degree murder charges after authorities searched his computer.
The day before Margorie Holland died, Roger Holland made Internet searches asking: "if you pass out and fall down a flight of stairs, can you break your neck," according to the criminal complaint against him.

He made similar searches multiple times before that, Backstrom said.

Police found Margorie Holland at the bottom of a flight of stairs in the couple's Apple Valley townhouse -- though the county medical examiner concluded she died of strangulation, not a fall down the stairs.
