Police: Pregnant Woman's Attacker Obsessed
Here's a new story that was published on MyWayNews yesterday...
This sounds very similar to another story about a women who killed a pregnant woman and stole the baby -- except in this case, the attacker failed and was instead killed (in self defense) after a struggle.
FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - A woman stabbed to death while possibly trying to steal a pregnant woman's fetus had been carrying an ultrasound picture of someone else's twins and was wearing maternity clothing filled with padding.
Police said 26-year-old Sarah Brady, who was nine months pregnant, acted in self-defense Thursday when she killed Katherine Smith.
"She was mentally disturbed," Fort Mitchell police Sgt. Tom Loos said of Smith. "There is no question about it."
Smith, 22, had been falsely telling neighbors for weeks that she was pregnant, and a search of her apartment after her death revealed a full baby nursery, investigators said.
Brady told police she was attacked when she went into Smith's first-floor apartment to look at the woman's nursery. Police released details of Brady's statement Saturday.
Loos said it appears that Brady struck Smith on the head with an ash tray and then grabbed the knife, stabbing Smith three times, including once in the upper chest.
Loos said that when Brady ran out of the apartment and flagged down a passing motorist for help, Smith removed her maternity underwear stuffed with padding and called 911. Dispatchers kept her on the line until she lost consciousness.
Smith bled to death. Police described Brady's wounds as cuts to her hands.
Boy is Aborted 3 Times and Still Survives
A BABY survived at least three attempts to abort it from the womb and was born alive at 24 weeks old.
This was reported in UK Times Online.
Now two years old and healthy, he is the first long-term abortion survivor to have been born so prematurely. His remarkable entrance into the world is documented in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Dr Paul Clarke, one of the report’s authors and the baby’s doctor at Hope hospital in Salford, Greater Manchester, said: “This mother went through extreme hardship waiting to see if her baby was going to make it. She was told to expect him to die so many times. I am full of admiration for her.”
The attempted abortions had been carried out at the British Pregnancy Advisory Service’s Blackdown clinic in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
Clarke reveals that paediatricians often intervene to save babies who have survived abortions.

Tiniest baby, born weighing less than soda can, goes home
The Associated Press released a story today talking about the worlds tiniest baby again...
A baby born weighing less than a soda can and believed to be the smallest ever to survive went home Tuesday after nearly six months in the hospital. ... Rumaisa Rahman's prognosis "is very good," and she is expected to have normal physical and mental development, said Dr. Jonathan Muraskas.
Madeline Mann, the previous record holder as smallest known surviving premature baby, returned to Loyola Hospital last year for a celebration. Now 15, she was described as a lively honor student, though small for her age, at 4 feet and 7 inches. According to the hospital, more than 1,700 newborns weighing less than 2 pounds have been cared for there in the past 20 years.
Of course, the abortionists kill lots of babies every day -- that are much larger than these little one -- and they say those are not really babies.
