Gerardo Flores was convicted on two counts of murder for helping his girlfriend kill their unborn babies. After about four months, she decided she’d rather have had an abortion, and started to hit herself and tried other methods to induce a miscarriage. When she was unsuccessful, she enlisted the help of her boyfriend in terminating the pregnancy.
The defense argued that his jumping on her stomach wasn’t necessarily the cause of the miscarriage, it might have been her hitting herself or a combination thereof.
She wasn’t charged because of her “right to an abortion.”
Gerardo got life in prison.
They both should have been charged, convicted and sentenced.
