Late last week, Tiffany Roberts of Chattanooga was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and neglect and viable fetus as a victim after experiencing a miscarriage at 23 weeks. She was pregnant with twins and faces charges for each separately and remains in jail unable to post the $1 million bond.
Hamilton County District Attorney Neal Pinkston has charged her under a misinformed and inaccurate theory that her drug use during pregnancy caused the miscarriage and a theory that a fetus or embryo is a child with separate rights, which is contrary to Tennessee and U.S. constitutional law. National Advocates for Pregnant Women stands with Health and Free Tennessee, SisterReach, and others in demanding that the District Attorney dismiss all charges and release Ms. Roberts immediately.
