Rally planned for woman charged in baby deathApril 5, 2013
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Supporters of a woman charged with murdering her infant by eating rat poison while pregnant are planning a rally in downtown Indianapolis.
Reproductive rights activists, mental health advocates and others are expected to attend the rally for Bei Bei Shuai on Saturday at the City Market. Shuai’s supporters say she shouldn’t be charged with murder and attempted feticide for a suicide attempt.
Shuai was eight months pregnant when she ate rat poison in December 2010. The baby died three days after premature delivery. Prosecutors charged Shuai the following March.
The case has garnered international attention. Supporters say if Shuai loses, pregnant women could be prosecuted for any behavior deemed dangerous to a fetus.
Shuai’s trial is scheduled for Sept. 3. She’s out of jail on bond.
