A Stanford law professor said he plans to appeal feticide and neglect charges for Purvi Patel who threw her baby boy in a trash dumpster after taking abortion pills.
The 33-year-old Indiana woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison earlier this year for throwing the almost fully developed baby into a dumpster behind a restaurant her family owns where the infant died.
Patel had ordered the pills online to abort her roughly thirty (30) week pregnancy.
As a result of Purvi’s conviction, the abortion lobby ran to her defense.
At the time of Patel’s arrest, Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher, called Patel another pro-choice poster child.
He then criticized the abortion lobby for defending Patel, pointing out that, “These savages never saw a baby they didn’t want to kill.”
Now, a Stanford law professor is taking Patel’s case pro bono to get Patel’s feticide and neglect convictions overturned.
Lawrence Marshall, who co-founded Northwestern University’s Center for Wrongful Convictions and currently teaches law at Stanford told WSBT 22 that Patel’s case, “cries out for reversal.”
An obstetrician who testified at the trial said he believed Patel’s baby was born alive and was not miscarried.
Jurors who convicted Patel heard testimony describing the baby as having a full head of dark hair, ears, a nose, arms, legs and feet.
The child was lying on its side on top of a plastic bag when found.
Crutcher pointed out that had Patel’s baby been found in the dumpster of an abortion clinic, instead of a restaurant, no charges would have been filed, “The fact is, if the body of this child had been found in the dumpster of an abortion clinic instead of the dumpster of a restaurant this arrest would have never happened and Patel would just be another enlightened woman exercising her constitutional right to choose,” he stated at the time of Patel’s arrest.
The appeal is expected to be filed soon.
