    If she did it on purpose to terminate her pregnancy, then it was stupider than going for a back alley abortion. If she did it out of clinical depression, then shame on the State of Iowa for arresting her for it.

    She did it for neither. She appears to have merely become a bit dizzy & light-headed, and slipped down the stairs by accident. Pregnant women are prone to such bouts of dizziness, unsteadiness, and falling accidents.

    She was screened at the hospital by the nurse, where she had gone to check to see if the fetus was OK. The nurse asked her if she'd ever have any thoughts about aborting, and the women said at one point she had, some time earlier. And things went from there. There was no evidence, and no witnesses to the fall, not even the women herself confessed to doing such a thing, it was all unsubstantiated conjecture on the part of the hospital and the police.

    What the HELL was she doing on those stairs!?
    you know what they say about women and stairs.... or is that women and cars?
    Pregnant women shouldn't be allowed near any staircase. they should pay dearly for such a heinous crime.

    contraceptives are evil too.

    She should be forced to endure the pain she put her unborn child through. I say throw the bitch down a flight of stairs!

    Oh, wait. Nevermind.
