A woman allegedly had an induced abortion after her boyfriend mixed an abortion pill into her drink without her knowledge.
“There was a gritty substance in there and when I looked at it, I could tell that it was a pill that had been ground up,” Brook Fiske told the Daily News after the incident occurred.
Fiske said she had been on-and-off dating Dr. Sikander Imran for three years and had traveled to meet up with him to discuss raising their son together, as she was 17 weeks pregnant. Her boyfriend did not want her to have a child, however, and tried to convince her to have an abortion, according to RochesterFirst.com.
“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 told RochesterFirst.
Fiske traveled to visit Imran’s residence in Virginia to discuss their future together where she drank tea, after which she noticed a powdery substance in the drink’s dregs but didn’t think anything of it until she began having contractions soon after. She said that Imran began weeping as her contractions started, saying that he was a horrible person and admitting to giving her abortion medicine.
A few hours after Fiske began having contractions, she was taken to Virginia Hospital Center where she miscarried. The hospital administered tests which showed that Imran had given Fiske Misoprostol, an abortion inducing drug. It takes 200 milligrams to induce labor and Imran gave Fiske 800 milligrams to be sure she would miscarry, according to the hospital’s nurse who evaluated Fiske.
Authorities arrested Imran and charged him with illegally causing an abortion to occur and premeditated killing of a fetus. His trial is set for March 12, 2018.
