Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

17yo girl took abortion pills, could face murder charges.

Postby CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Feb 26, 2017 11:01 am

A 17 year old girl in Bangkok may face a murder charge for abortion at the 8 month stage of her pregnancy.

According to Kannayao police, the minor, whose name was withheld, admitted to aborting her pregnancy by taking “abortion pills” she bought from the internet and dumped the baby’s body in a trash can outside of a Ramintra village on Feb. 19.

Police said she was stressed and afraid the baby would not have the support it needed as the baby’s father, Rachanon Pimsupaporn, 20, was recently sent to jail for possessing 11 grams of methamphetamine.

Police said the girl would be charged for abortion, but if forensic evidence showed that the baby was alive before she dumped it in the trash, she will face charges of premeditated murder and concealing the body.
Abortion carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a fine of THB6,000.
