Abortion tablets in wife’s food

‘A baker who put abortion tablets into his wife’s breakfast to try to make her lose their baby has been jailed.

Gil Magira, 36, crushed the tablets into his 38-year-old wife Anat Abraham’s sandwich, a bowl of cereal and a yoghurt, the Old Bailey was told.

Mrs Abraham suffered pain and bleeding but the child survived unharmed.

Magira, of Holmebrook Drive, Hendon, north London, admitted “using an instrument to procure a miscarriage” – the first such charge in 30 years. [..]

His wife said she feared for her life – and that of the child – when she realised what he had done.

“What made it worse was how desperate and determined he was to try to kill the baby that I already felt moving inside me,” she said.’
