Man Charged With Stomping on Pregnant Girlfriend's Stomach to Kill Their Unborn Baby

OMG 225

pregnant bellySometimes, the human race disappoints and appalls you in ways you never thought possible. A 28-year-old man named Kenneth Turner got his ex-girlfriend pregnant. But he didn't want the child. So, instead of trying to figure out what he was going to do/how he was going to deal, he allegedly broke into her apartment and stomped on her stomach -- with both feet -- in order to kill the unborn baby.

According to the complaint that was filed, Turner entered his ex's apartment last week and beat and assaulted her for three hours. He reportedly kicked, punched, hit, and choked her numerous times; and for his finale, he ordered her to lay on her back so he could stomp on her abdomen -- oh, all while telling her she didn't deserve the baby. When she was eventually found, she had bruises all over her body, as well as vaginal bleeding and, obviously, pain in her abdomen.

I've been blogging for a decent amount of time, and I have to say: This could be one of the most disgusting, horrifying stories I've ever heard. That's Turner's solution for an unwanted pregnancy? Beating the everliving crap out of his ex-girlfriend? And stomping her stomach? WTF? Ugh, I seriously am nauseated just thinking about this. 

Turner's been taken in and charged (and is being held on $500,000 bail), and if the allegations prove to be true, he's in for a seriously rude awakening. He could be facing charges of first-degree attempted murder of an unborn child, as well as domestic assault. Guess some people would rather do time than pay child support (or wear a condom). Hopefully, if he's convicted, he'll be in there for life. Disgusting.

I mean, how appalling is this?

When I was pregnant with my first my co workers threatened to kick me in the stomache so my baby would die. Our boss wouldn't do shit about it. I lost that baby. I got pregnant again and the same thing they threatened to kick me in the stomach so I would miscarry again. I quit after that. Sick SOB's they don't deserve to live if they are going to treat pregnant women like that.

OMG This makes me sad and mad and sick. He deserves to be put away forlife. I am so sorry to hear this and it makes me sad. Did the baby make it?

While I am appalled at this I have to wonder, how many of those who think this is disgusting are pro-abortion. There is no difference. It's funny how he is being charged with "attempted murder of an unborn child" when our society labels an unborn child a "fetus" and with that, abortion is allowed. If one is wrong, then they both are.

Poor woman! It's so disturbing and it is disgusting to know that there are humans out there like that! I know I shouldn't be saying this...but I think someone in prison should stomp on his baby making machine! See how that feels!

Vee Nelson

I'm sorry: did he not know that this woman could get pregnant if they had unprotected sex? Then he loses his mind and does THIS? OMG--that poor woman and baby! If the baby did survive, is he or she ok?? But how can it be--after such an attack. An eye for an eye sounds appropriate to me: they should let the public beat and stomp and punch him. Wow...

"Turner's girlfriend was two months pregnant at the time and it's unclear whether her embryo suffered any permanent damage".

@baby1love why in the world would your coworkers say and do such a thing like that to you?  that's just cold and heartless!

I want to chunk my computer. This angers me to no end. I would completely open up several cans of whoopass on him like there was no tomorrow. I am a 2 time cancer surviver and had chemo when I was a teenager. There was a huge possibility that I would not be able to have kids. I am a very proud mother of a 2.5 year old who will be 3 in May. I was in an abusive relationship with my ex as well. I would do whatever means possible to protect myself and my baby. I mean, WHATEVER MEANS NCESSARY! I am so pissed off at this kind of crap. There really should be a way to monitor people like that, anytime anyone gets pregnant, both parents should have psyche evals. This kind of thing happens way too often in our society and WE allow it!!! It is becoming the norm, though most of us are appauled and disgusted. What can we as a society do to prevent this kind of crap????

Thankfully, it says the baby made it. lets hope the baby isnt brain damaged or something from this. I hope the mother recovers well!

On another note. If you read the article and the reviews, its disgusting that people have turned the attempted murder of a child into a Racial thing........ITS A BABY regardless and a LUNATIC father.....

Whether or not you're pro or anti abortion this isn't the forum for that arguement. The issue is the torture of this poor woman and what this low life put her through. The terror she must have felt brrrrrrr......he won't last long in the wider prison population once they find out what he did. Even criminals have an abhorence of child killers, molesters.
