Honestly…you couldn’t make this up if you tried:
Incidentally, the victim had to have an emergency c-section; she and her daughter, aptly named “Miracle”, are both doing fine.But really, doesn’t this behavior just sound like something out of Butterbox Babies, or perhaps an extreme version of a Christian “shepherding home”? Bit of both, maybe–in this case, the unlicensed fauxtetrician and the “shepherder” were one and the same.Whatever it is, I think the anti-choice movement should own up and claim this crazy woman as one of their own.
For nearly five days, police said, Veronica D. Deramous kept the pregnant woman, bound with duct tape, inside her Suitland apartment, giving her food and drink to keep her alive. Deramous wanted the woman’s unborn baby girl, police said, and was willing to get it by any means.Sometime over the weekend, police said, Deramous turned up the volume on the TV, shoved a rag in the woman’s mouth and put a piece of tape over it. Then she uttered a chilling warning.“You’re strong,” Deramous told her victim, according to police. “You can handle what I’m going to do to you.”Using a few box cutters and a razor blade, Deramous cut into the woman’s abdomen, police said. When the woman, 29 and homeless, escaped sometime in the next 24 hours, her placenta, stomach and intestines were still exposed.
