The ex-boyfriend, Kevin Wilson, of a heavily pregnant woman, Malorie Bantala, has appeared in court charged with child destruction and grievous bodily harm after she was attacked and lost her unborn child.
The indictment against Kevin read, “With intent to destroy the life of a child capable of being born alive, by a wilful act, namely kicking and stamping on the stomach of the 32-weeks pregnant mother, caused the child to die before it had an existence independent of its mother.”
Detective Chief Inspector Robert Pack from the Homicide and Major Crime Command said: "This was a truly abhorrent and vile attack on a heavily-pregnant woman who has now, tragically, lost her baby."
Commenting on the case Andrea Williams, Christian Concern, said, “This is a highly disturbing case.It highlights the shocking inconsistency of our society’s attitude to unborn children. Every day 500 children are aborted in our nation; 200,000 every year and 8½ million children since the passing of the Abortion Act 1967. With the new ellaOne 5-day abortion pill, that is now available to those under the age of 16, that figure is likely to grow.
"This baby’s life was precious and the way this baby die has caused an outpouring of horror and grief. Why do we not feel the same way about the 500 babies that are aborted every day?" @
