Why do they say miscarriage if she was attacked? Wouldn’t that be more like murdered?
If it were to go to court in the USA yes there is precedent for murder charges against an assailant who causes a miscarriage. Miscarry is more of a quasi-medical term than a legal one.
In Syria, however, anything might be possible.
From the article:
Since her ordeal, which she did not report to the police, Miss Pollard has decided not to attempt another surrogacy for the Bin Ladens, who have now separated amid claims that Omar has developed mental illness.
She may have had some insights into Syrian law which made her think twice about reporting it.
