On September 19, 1692, Giles Corey, accused of wizardry, was executed as part of the Salem Witch Trials. If you’re familiar with the history, you may remember him as the man  who refused to enter a plea even though he was being tortured by putting heavy stones on his chest. He was crushed to death but his last words were, “More weight!”

  1. British law only allows for abortions later than 24 weeks if “there is grave risk to the life of the woman; evidence of severe foetal abnormality; or risk of grave physical and mental injury to the woman”

    Sarah Catt induced hers 2 days before her due date, so it’s fairly obvious that she did, in fact, break the law.

    What concerns me most about this case is that she took a drug intended to induce labour, 2 days before the baby was due to be born anyway, claims it was stillborn, but won’t tell anybody where she hid the body.

    Please, correct me if i’m wrong, but if you induce labour a mere 2 days early, the overwhelming chances are that you’re going to birth a healthy baby, surely? I have a sinkingly depressing feeling that she actually committed infanticide.
