FBI charged man with murder after, they say, he tricked girlfriend into taking abortion pill
ABC Action News ^ | May 16, 2013 | Jacqueline Ingles

Posted on 05/16/2013 9:42:36 AM PDT by EternalVigilance

TAMPA BAY - Federal authorities arrested a local doctor's son, who they say tricked his pregnant girlfriend into taking an abortion pill, killing their unborn child.

John Andrew Weldon, 28, is now facing first-degree murder and interfering with interstate commerce charges.

According to a federal arrest affidavit, Weldon swapped out his girlfriend's antibiotics with abortion pills, specifically Cytotec.

"I was never going to do anything but go full term with it, and he didn't want me to," explained Remee Lee, 26, Weldon's now ex-girlfriend.

On Easter Sunday, Lee went to an area hospital complaining of severe cramping and excessive vaginal bleeding. Doctors told Lee her unborn baby no longer had a heartbeat.

Lee also brought along a bottle of Amoxycillin, an antibiotic. But when doctors examined the pills, they told her they were abortion pills.

"He came to my house with the pills, his weapon of choice," Lee recalled.

Lee said when she learned she was pregnant, Weldon took her to see his father, who is an obstetrician in Lutz. A sonogram and blood test confirmed Lee was six-weeks pregnant.

The next day, Weldon called his girlfriend with bad news. Her blood test apparently showed she had a bacterial infection and she would need to take Amoxicillin to clear it up.

On Good Friday, Lee said Weldon showed up at her Tampa home with a care package that included the bottle of antibiotics. The label said the pills were A moxycillin .

"He told me to keep taking them. I was supposed to take three a day for days," she recalled of Weldon's instructions.

These murder weapons are not like guns, which can be used for peaceful, legitimate purposes. They are designed solely to kill innocents. They have absolutely no redeeming value. Anyone who produces them or distributes them is complicit in crimes against humanity. Their very existence is a grave threat to all expecting mothers and their offspring.

Silly man, don’t you know that only women have the right to murder their unborn child?

So killing the baby in the uterus via abortion pill is legal only if the woman chooses it? Just wonderful— and that creep guy is 110% wrong and should be prosecuted for murder.

How creepy to go to your boyfriend's father for a medical exam, and stupid to believe it was appropriate for the boyfriend to phone her with an additional diagnosis and bring her prescription medicine. Illegal of a doctor; and ewwww.

If she had done a simple online search before taking this or any medication, she would have discovered that amoxycillin is not effective in a 3-4 day regimen (usually 8-10 days), and therefore it was not what it was represented to be. You can also research online the proper color, shape and manufacturer's markings of medicinal tablets.

The Original Suffragettes and Women’s Rights Advocates were passionately Pro-Life.

This horrific story illustrates that for YEARS, abortion was considered violence against a woman and her child for the sake of a MAN’S convenience.

It is only the modern feminazis that have cloaked abortion in the guise of “A Woman’s Right To Choose”.

Murder in this case is not defined by WHAT was done, the status of the victim, nor WHY it was done.

Murder in this case is defined by WHO chose to commit the act.

How can we allow murder to be defined by WHO commits the act?

Well, yes. It's a woman's right to privacy don't you know. It is right there in the Constitution, Article, um. No wait, Amendment No., oh I forgot. Anyway, it is only women who have that right, men are brutes. That is the law! Live with it. /s

That is head spinning logic.
It is legal for the mother to murder the baby -- because it must be a 'non-person' lump of tissue. If the (scum) boyfriend induces the murder - it is recognized that the baby really is a person...
Which one is it - lump of tissue, or person?
There is only one answer, and not two (depending on who initiates the murder).

Well, I understand that Freepers are annoyed that women are allowed to kill babies but men aren’t, unless the women agree.

But it really IS murder. I’m only a bit surprised that the Feds see it that way.

Maybe she was wrong, having a baby without being married. But a baby is a baby, and it doesn’t deserve to get murdered. Especially on Easter.

Awful.

This one puts the activists in a quandary.

If they argue it isn’t murder than it can’t really be a violation of the victims rights.

If they argue that her rights were violated, then it’s admitting murder.

The Theme Song of the Abortion Set....

You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You by Dean Martin
You’re nobody ‘til somebody loves you
You’re nobody ‘til somebody cares.
You may be king, you may possess the world and it’s gold,
But gold won’t bring you happiness when you’re growing old.
The world still is the same, you never change it,
As sure as the stars shine above;
You’re nobody ‘til somebody loves you,
So find yourself somebody to love.

The world still is the same, you never change it,
As sure as the stars shine above;
You’re nobody ‘til somebody loves you,
So find yourself somebody, find yourself somebody,
Find yourself somebody to love.

It won’t get that far. The murder charge is probably designed to get the guy to quickly plead to a lesser charge like assault.

There’s no way that a murder conviction would survive an appeal. 14th Amendment and all that ...

Double standard. The courts cannot uphold this. He didn’t want to be punished with a baby.

Can’t say it is “life” only based on “mother’s wishes”. Either it IS or it ISN’T.

Sure, it is murder. However, to charge this man with murder, while letting the woman who goes to Planned Parenthood for an abortion walk free, is a violation of the equal protection clause.

Even worse, this is not just a single incident of discrimination, but a policy enshrined in the laws themselves. That makes it tyrannical.

By liberal “logic” if the fetus is not a person, how can this be murder? By their “logic” how is this any different than killing a tapeworm?

John Andrew Weldon, 28, is now facing first-degree murder and interfering with interstate commerce charges.

I think it might have to do with how he obtained the pills and the unlawful fraudulent use and relabeling them with antibiotic label.

My guess is they don't want this to become a popular activity as it will cause all kinds of grief for the manufacturer and the abortion lobby for keeping them over the counter.

I call this "The Velveteen Rabbit" theory on the value of human life.

Liberals believe that an unborn baby only becomes real if it is loved. Then, and only then, is killing it considered murder.

They're actually OK with the idea that one human can arbitrarily confer the right to exist on another.

They’d better be careful in deciding this is murder.

There are going to be a lot of 14 year old schoolboys charged with murder for doping their girlfriends’ drinks daily in effort to keep them from becoming pregnant as they fool around.

Once upon a time that was “statutory rape” but the sex positive proponents said that it was wrong to charge them with “rape”. Now they will face murder charges. Such an improvement...

Notice that the gub’mint is unwilling to tally the dead baby from Nadil Hasan’s murder rampage at Ft. Hood. So apparently if a muslim does the fetus killing, it doesn’t count as murder either.

I found this...

In her writings, Susan B. Anthony occasionally mentioned abortion. Susan B. Anthony opposed abortion which at the time was an unsafe medical procedure for women, endangering their health and life. She blamed men, laws and the "double standard" for driving women to abortion because they had no other options. ("When a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is a sign that, by education or circumstances, she has been greatly wronged." 1869) She believed, as did many of the feminists of her era, that only the achievement of women's equality and freedom would end the need for abortion. Anthony used her anti-abortion writings as yet another argument for women's rights.

But evidently, there is some debate according to this Wikipedia article.

American suffragist Susan B. Anthony's position on abortion has been the subject of a modern-day dispute. Some pro-life activists promote the idea that she was anti-abortion and would support the pro-life side of the modern debate over the issue. However, a number of scholars, pro-choice activists, and journalists have said that this narrative is a case of unwarranted historical revisionism.

Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 is the federal statute that he is being prosecuted under. Basically, if you commit a federal crime that results in the death of a fetus, you can be charged with felony murder. Many states also have similar statutes. It is a natural extension of standard felony murder statutes.

The originating federal felony was the product tampering of relabeling a medication, which is a nasty crime in and of itself.
