Imagine someone close to your pregnant-self spiking an abortion pill in your drink and as a result you end up losing a baby, only to realize that it was your husband.
That was the case in New York where a doctor is accused of causing his girlfriend to lose her baby by spiking her drink with an abortion pill.
The two guys Brook Fiske and Sikander Imran had been dating on and off for three years. Imran, a doctor, had moved from Rochester to Arlington, Virginia for a new job when he learned from Fiske that she was pregnant.
"He didn't want to have a baby so he tried to talk me into having an abortion which I didn't want to do," Fiske said. "I felt very betrayed and devastated."
Having been 17 weeks pregnant, Fiske revealed that she went to Virginia to visit Imran to plan how they would raise the child. And that's when she says he poisoned her with the abortion pill.
"When I was drinking my tea in the evening, I got to the bottom of the cup, there was a gritty substance in there. When I looked at it, I could tell that it was a pill that had been ground up," she told WROC-TV.
A few hours later Fiske started having contractions.
"He immediately started crying and said that he was a horrible person and that he had done what I thought he did," Fiske said.
Fiske was rushed to Virginia Hospital Center where she went into labor and lost her baby boy. Fiske says tests showed the abortion pill Misoprostol was found in her system.
"According to the nurse at the hospital it's 200 milligrams to induce labor. So he gave me 800," Fiske alleged.
Court documents indicate that Imran was taken into custody and charged with cause of abortion and premeditated killing of a fetus of another. Fiske says she last saw Imran when she testified in court back in June. There, she says, she began to find some closure.
Fiske said, "It was very empowering for me to face him and say what he had done. And look him in the face while I said that."
