Man Accused Of Trying To Kill Teen's Fetus With Cow Hormone

A Pennsylvania man is in jail on charges he tried to kill the fetus of a
17-year-old girl by helping two teenage boys put an abortion-inducing cow hormone into her drink.

Forty-six-year-old Jonathan Imler, of Williamsburg, was charged and jailed in Blair County on Tuesday.

Police say the girl's 16-year-old boyfriend, who is the father of the child, another 17-year-old boy and Imler stole the hormone from a farm.

The 17-year-old allegedly put a drop of it in the girl's Gatorade in March 2008. The girl's mother has said a friend told her daughter about the drink's contents later that day.

Police say they plan to charge the boys. The girl has since given birth. Her mother says the hormone apparently didn't harm the baby.

    Thank Goodness the baby or the mother was not harmed. The man and the boys need to be charged and prosecuted for what they tried to do to her baby.

    This is horrible! What if it had harmed the child! If you can lay down and have sex with someone then you need to be responsible enough to suffer the consequences 16 or not. This needs to be taught more and more. I wish we had a program to let them take care of a baby for about a few weeks. I think it would help them abstain! Not that babies are a bad thing but a whole lot of responsibility and expensive too.
