Women Who Attack Women to Steal Their Unborn Babies

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.

When a Problem Affects 545 Native women, It’s a “Crisis.” But if It Affects 1,681 Native Men, It’s Not.

The problem of murdered and missing Indians has been recognized for years. As early as 2019, the Department of Justice National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NaMus) listed 404 missing Native Americans — 250 males and 154 females.[i]

More recently, the Centers for Disease Control released a detailed report on “Homicides of American Indians/Alaska Natives” spanning the years 2003 to 2018.  The CDC report reveals that males represent 75.5% of all Indian victims of homicide — 1,681 male victims and 545 female victims.[ii]

In 2013 Congress added a new section to the federal Violence Against Women Act titled, “Safety for Indian Women.” The record provides no explanation or justification for the exclusion of Indian men.[iii] The VAWA amendment galvanized a fevered national movement known as Murdered and Missing Indian Women, or “MMIW.”


Nine years later, a Google search on the words “murdered and missing indigenous women” turns up 63,300 results. These numbers include media articles, websites, legislative reports, and more.

But a Google search on “murdered and missing indigenous men” turns up a much smaller number — only 1,920 results. Why is there such a disquieting disparity?

Last year, Senators Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska published an editorial titled, “Shocking History of Violence Against Native Women is a Crisis We Can Stop.” The essay repeatedly referred to the “crisis” of murdered, missing, and trafficked Indigenous women.[iv]

But the article made no mention of murdered American Indian men, such as Levi Brian Yellow Mule of the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana. Or Russell Shack who was shot by Amber Yazzie during the course of an armed robbery in Gallup, NM. Or the many hundreds of other murdered Indian men.

Apparently, when a problem affects 545 Native women, it’s a “crisis.” But if it affects 1,681 Native men, it’s not.

The American Dream is founded on the pursuit of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Given the pre-eminent importance of “life,” it’s fair to ask: Why do the lives of Native American men seem to count for so much less than the lives of Native American women?
