|Tributes for Nikkita Grender and her unborn child...|
'Nightclub bouncer Carl Whant was last night charged with the murder of teenager Nikitta Grender and the “child destruction” of her unborn baby. Whant, 26 – a cousin of Nikitta’s boyfriend Ryan Mayes – will appear before magistrates tomorrow. Nikitta, 19, of Newport, Gwent, had been due to give birth this coming Thursday, Ryan’s 18th birthday.
Use of the child destruction charge, which dates from 1929, is rare. District Crown Prosecutor Stacey Turner said: “Offences relating to unborn children fall outside the scope of murder legislation. Therefore in respect of Nikitta Grender’s unborn child, we have advised Gwent Police to charge Carl Whant with the offence of child destruction under the Infant Life (Preservation) Act 1929.”'
Is it just me who is confused by the application of this English law, in frankly any circumstance, when approximately 200,000 unborn children are destroyed by abortion every year in the United Kingdom alone?
May the the souls of the victims rest in peace, their family be comforted and the killer be brought to repentance and find God's mercy.
