Purvi Patel has 20-year sentence for inducing own abortion reduced by Indiana court

Purvi PatelAn Indiana appeals court on Friday threw out the most serious conviction of Purvi Patel, the first US woman to be sent to prison for inducing her own abortion, and reduced the severity of the other charge of which she was convicted, with a rebuke for the prosecutors who sought furiously to convict her of fetal homicide.

Both convictions stemmed from her 2013 self-abortion attempt, which ended in a miscarriage.
