Court: Man put abortion pills in lover's yogurt
Swedish woman aborted pregnancy over tainted food fears

updated 6:58 p.m. ET, Tues., Feb. 26, 2008

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - A Swedish court of appeal on Tuesday sentenced a 27-year-old man to 18 months in prison for trying to make his girlfriend miscarry by mixing abortion pills in her food.

The man, who was not named for legal reasons, had his jail term increased from a previous one-year sentence set by a district court in June.

In its ruling, the Court of Appeal for Western Sweden found the man guilty of aggravated assault for attempting to make his girlfriend of eight years miscarry by giving her a yogurt containing three ground-up pills. The sentence also included a more minor count of assault.

The court documents said the woman had decided to have the baby even though he felt he was not ready to be a father. The man ordered some pills on the Internet and fooled his doctor into prescribing others for another condition.

The woman ate the yogurt and suffered severe stomach pains and vaginal bleeding.

When she later realized what she had eaten, she decided to have an abortion, fearing that the fetus had been damaged by the pills.

The defendant's lawyer, Lars Boberg, said his client would most likely appeal the ruling.

I'd add food tampering and practicing medicine without a license to his crimes.

I'm trying to figure out why he thinks he should appeal.

There was a guy in the U.S. who did this to his girlfriend more than once. I can't find a link to it, but it happened within the last couple of months. Very sad.

aggravated assault, attempted murder (of the woman, not the fetus), and food tampering should all have been charged.
