The father of an unborn child who was killed in an abortion says he is distraught about what happened and he was looking forward to being a Dad.
As LifeNews previously reported, a former worker at an abortion clinic now faces charges after helping a friend to give birth and then leaving the baby to die.
Jessica Carpenter and Rachel Lowe of Norfolk, Virginia are being charged with felonies for producing a miscarriage. The 27-year-old Rachel Lowe, a former employee at Tidewater Women’s Health Clinic, a Norfolk abortion facility, is accused of providing 20-year-old Carpenter with a concoction of health store herbs that would cause an abortion.
The baby was six months along at the time of the abortion.
The state classifies self-induced abortions a Class 4 felony that carries a 2-10 year prison sentence and up to $100,000 in fines.
Now, the baby’s father, John Jones, is sharing his story about how he wished the baby had not been killed.
“She told me that he died of natural causes,” Jones told a local television station. “Now I’m hearing that my son could have been purposely killed.”

“It may have just been to me but he’s still special,” Jones said of the baby, adding he believes his former girlfriend should go to prison if convicted.
