Michelle Wilkins Recalls Having Her Baby Cut From Her Womb: “It Was a Nightmare”

In March, a woman was arrested in Longmont, Colorado after she attacked Michelle Wilkins and cut her seven-month-old unborn baby out of her womb. In this unbelievable act of violence, Wilkin’s baby, Aurora, died but she survived. Tragically, a report showed that the baby breathed a heavy last gasp before she died.

However, after the incident, a spokeswoman from the Boulder Country District Attorney’s Office said the perpetrator, Dynel Lane, would not face murder charges for the baby’s death. Instead, prosecutors charged the perpetrator with attempted murder of the mother, multiple counts of assault on the mother and unlawful termination of a pregnancy. On July 23rd, Lane pleaded not guilty to those charges at Boulder County Court.

Now Wilkins has spoken to Dr. Phil McGraw about the incident, and she will be featured on one of his upcoming TV segments. This is the first time Wilkins has spoken in an interview about the incident. Times Call Crime reports that she told Dr. Phil about the attack and “her surprising attitude toward her alleged attacker and demonstrate the strength and resilience she has shown in the face of tragedy.”

In an excerpt from the show, she said, “I was very confused when it all started,” She grabbed me and pushed me deeper in the house. It had this nightmarish quality. She broke something over my head and liquid was pouring on me.”

As LifeNews previously reported, Colorado state law does not regard unborn children as human beings who deserve justice when they are injured or killed in violent attacks against their mothers. In 2013, Colorado Democrats killed a bill that would add the state to the list of more than 25 states that provide justice and protection for pregnant women and unborn children

Then, earlier this year, Democrats in the state House killed an unborn victims bill for the second time after Republicans passed the bill on the Senate Floor. In fact, not a single Democrat voted in favor of the legislation even though it would bring justice for babies like Aurora who die in violent homicides.

During the debate on the measure, pro-abortion Democrats falsely claimed the bill would be used to prosecute women for miscarriages or would ban abortions, even though federal unborn victims law and the laws of dozens of states have not done so.


Perini Associates released a statement on Wilkins behalf about her interview with Dr. Phil. She said, “The Dr. Phil show was a positive experience for me and I am glad that I was able to tell my story in a way that will hopefully benefit others. I appreciate Dr. Phil’s insight and genuine efforts to treat me with dignity and respect, along with the offer to further help in my recovery. I am still on a difficult journey and am taking it one day at a time.”
