This story shocked me to my core. It will shock you too.
A Missouri woman who was strangled by an acquaintance probably regained consciousness as the attacker sliced into her abdomen to steal her unborn baby, a pathologist testified Friday.
Bobbie Jo Stinnett likely blacked out after being choked from behind with a rope but began struggling again when her attacker loosened the rope to begin cutting into her belly, said Mary Case, the chief medical examiner for St. Louis County, Missouri.
“There is evidence that she regained consciousness while the incision was made in her abdomen,” Case testified.
Lisa Montgomery, 39, is accused of strangling Stinnett and then using a kitchen knife to carve the baby from her womb.
Montgomery, who had been faking a pregnancy, then tried to pass the baby off as her own.
Unbelievable. But the Lord intervened.
The baby, Victoria Jo, was found safe a day later at Montgomery’s home on December 17, 2004.
Now nearly three years later, she is doing fine but does not know what really happened to her mother, her father testified Thursday.
Montgomery’s lawyers have conceded that she killed Stinnett but are arguing that she is so mentally unbalanced that she did not understand that it was wrong.
And she deserves what any abortionist should get for interfering with a pregnancy.
Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if she is found guilty.
This is what happens when we as a society treat life as a commodity, as so much meat, rather than as something precious given to us by G-d. I say throw the book at her. What say you?
