"The St. Joseph County prosecutor filed a feticide charge against her last week in addition to a felony neglect charge.

The coalition claims the feticide law was never intended to punish a pregnant woman who has lost a pregnancy for any reason.

Police say Patel took drugs she ordered from Hong Kong to try to abort the pregnancy.

She is scheduled to go on trial next month. She will be in court Tuesday morning for a hearing"

The comments give an interesting impression.


Seems like they are trying to have it both ways.  On the one hand, accuse of felony neglect, which I suspect means a live child.  Which would not be feticide.   On the other hand, accuse of killing a fetus, which would not be neglect of a live child.
