Police reaction to full-term abortion of baby jailing

Chief Inspector Kerrin Smith of North Yorkshire Police has said a woman who aborted her own baby in the final phase of her pregnancy should reveal where the baby has been buried.

Sarah Louise Catt, 35, took a drug when she was full term, 39 weeks pregnant, to cause an early delivery. Catt has been jailed for eight years.

She claimed the boy was stillborn and that she buried his body, but no evidence of the child was ever found.
