Pregnant Woman, Marshee Jones Shot In The Stomach, Then Charged With Manslaughter Of Her Baby

The Western Justice System Is a Farce

An Alabama woman, Marshee Jones has been accused of manslaughter after another woman shot her in the stomach, killing her unborn baby. The shooter was not charges, but her victim was blamed for starting the fight and could face up to 20 years in prison.

Marshee has been accused of “intentionally causing the death” or her child “by initiating a fight knowing she was five months pregnant.” Police said that it was important to not lose sight of the real victim in the ordeal, the unborn baby.

Amanda Reyes who is the executive director of abortion rights group the Yellowhammer Fund said in a statement, “Today, Marshee Jones is being charged with manslaughter for being pregnant and getting shot while engaging in an altercation with a person who had a gun. Tomorrow, it will be another black woman, maybe for having a drink while pregnant. And after that, another, for not obtaining adequate prenatal care.” The group has pledged to assist with Jones’ legal representation and raise funds to pay her $50,000 bond.
