Baby Needs Lifetime of Medical Support After Mother's Home Abortion

Anna Yocca, 31, was recently charged with attempted first-degree murder for her failed abortion attempt. The Tennessee mother, of Murfreesboro, was arrested on Wednesday. In addition, she is jailed on a $200,000 bond.

According to a Murfreesboro Police Department report, in September, Yocca filled a bathtub with water then used a coat hanger to self-abort. She then started bleeding and worried about her health. As a result, her boyfriend took her to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital.

After that, she was transferred to Saint Thomas Midtown in Nashville where she delivered a 24-week-old baby that weighed only 1.5 pounds. Doctors told investigators that the child will now need medical support for the rest of his life because of his mother's actions.

Sergeant Kyle Evans told WTVF "The whole time she was concerned for her health, her safety and never gave any attention to the health and safety of the unborn child."
