    Pregnant #OccupySeattle Protester Miscarries After Being Kicked, Pepper Sprayed

    This is unbelievable!!!

    Pregnant #OccupySeattle Protester Miscarries After Being Kicked, Pepper Sprayed | Video Cafe


    A woman who was pepper sprayed during during a raid on Occupy Seattle last week is blaming police after she miscarried Sunday.

    Jennifer Fox, 19, told The Stranger that she had been with the Occupy protests since they started in Westlake Park. She said she was homeless and three months pregnant, but felt the need to join activists during their march last Tuesday.

    "I was standing in the middle of the crowd when the police started moving in," Fox recalled. "I was screaming, 'I am pregnant, I am pregnant. Let me through. I am trying to get out.'"

    She claimed that police hit her in the stomach twice before pepper spraying her. One officer struck her with his foot and another pushed his bicycle into her. It wasn't clear if either of those incidents were intentional."Right before I turned, both cops lifted their pepper spray and sprayed me. My eyes puffed up and my eyes swelled shut," Fox said.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer Joshua Trujillo snapped a picture of Fox in apparent agony as another activist carried her to an ambulance.Seattle fire department spokesman Kyle Moore told The Washington Post that a 19-year-old pregnant woman was among those that were examined by paramedics.

    Rut roh. This is what I was arguing with others about. It's all fun and games until someone has an asthma attack and dies, or some lady has a miscarriage. I don't suppose conservatives will much care, even though they are "pro-life" or whatever (since they seem to think pepper spraying large groups of people who are sitting down is funny), but the city of Seattle will start to care as the lawsuits pour in.

    This is too much "he said, she said" for me at the moment. I will be interested to hear the outcome of the case, however. No matter the cause, miscarriage is tragic and I feel awful for this woman and the pain she must be going through. The loss of a child, born or not, is one of the worst possible pains someone can go through.

    Why was she even there? I would think the safety of her baby would take priority over her politics. She had to know that the chance of a dust up was purdy good.

    Sounds like she has the parental skills of a ****ing house cat.

    This is prime example of how the occu-tards want to be relieved all their pesonal responsibility.

    Nevermind the responsibility of the police to refrain from beating pregnant women.

    She's apparently a homeless pregnant women. I would say the welfare of her baby depends a lot upon the priorities of politics.

    I know from the article that she is pregnant and homeless and put herself in a situation which represented a high possibility of damage to her unborn child. Doesn't demonstrate good prenatal care or concern for the future of the child.

    And neither do you, but somehow you know anything she says must just be the gospel truth? Certainly no motive for lying here. LOL

    It's funny, the lady was supposedly 3 months pregnant and homeless but the miscarriage is caused by the pepper spray?

    Where did I say gospel truth? In fact, you'll never find me saying I take her at her word for anything (other than the lawsuits are about to start pouring in at the OWS cities). It's great that conservatives say they are prolife, but in a case like this, it is much easier to dismiss the lady and assume she deserved it, right?

    How low do you have to get to insult her, X-Factor (you as in anyone, not you specifically)?

    Hummm, according to the story she was screaming that she was pregnant and to be "let out". Why didn't the protesters get out of her way?
