Attacker Kills Woman 5 Months Pregnant, New York’s New Abortion Law Says Her Baby Isn’t A Human Being

New York’s new abortion law does not just strip away abortion restrictions that protect late-term unborn babies. It also denies justice to pregnant mothers and unborn babies who are victims of violent crimes.

The law’s repeal of the New York fetal homicide law means the person who stabbed a pregnant woman Sunday in Ridgewood, New York, killing her and her unborn baby, can no longer be charged for the baby’s death.

The Times Ledger reports police are searching for suspects in the brutal stabbing of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35, of Rego Park, and her unborn baby. Police said someone called 911 after finding Irigoyen bleeding heavily in the vestibule of a building on Myrtle Avenue early Sunday morning.

Police said the woman had multiple stab wounds on her torso, neck and hands; she was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly afterward. They said she was about five months pregnant with her unborn baby, who also died as a result of the attack.
