Women Who Attack Women to Steal Their Unborn Babies


January 10, 2024

There is no crime more brutal, more sinister, or more incomprehensible than a female who kills a pregnant woman with the intention of stealing the unborn baby from the dead mother’s womb. But these crimes continue to happen with disturbing regularity.

These are six incidents from the last two years:

1. Woman pleads guilty to ‘helping mother kill 19-year-old and cut baby from womb’

2. US carries out its 1st execution of female inmate since 1953

A Kansas woman was executed Wednesday for strangling an expectant mother in Missouri and cutting the baby from her womb, the first time in nearly seven decades that the U.S. government has put to death a female inmate.

3. Killer Sentenced to Death for Stabbing Pregnant Woman 100 Times, Trying to Steal Her Baby

4. Woman accused of killing pregnant stranger to steal unborn baby faces new charge

5. Texas woman who killed pregnant friend and cut unborn baby from womb, sentenced to death

6. Friend of slain mother Heidi Broussard sentenced to 55 years in prison 

While these cases are fortunately rare, their incidence seems to be increasing. According to a 2021 study, there were 15 such cases reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the 24-year period from 1987 to 2011.

However, a 2017 article, “10 Horrifying Cases Of Fetal Abduction,” identified eight examples in the United States and South Africa between 2009 and 2017.

Internationally, mothers commit 72% of all infant murders. Despite these grisly facts, groups such as the United Nations continue to white-wash female-perpetrated violence.
