Tuesday, a 26 year old woman, who is 9 months pregnant, killed another woman who attacked her with a knife.
The police believe that the woman who attacked a pregnant woman with a knife was actually after her baby.
The attacker has been telling her neighbors for weeks and even had a room setup in her apartment for the baby, crib and all.
FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - A nine-months’ pregnant woman fought off and killed a knife-wielding woman who may have been trying to steal the baby, police said Friday.
Police said 26-year-old Sarah Brady acted in self-defense in killing Katherine Smith on Thursday. No charges were filed.

Smith, 22, had been falsely telling neighbors for weeks that she was pregnant, and a search of her apartment after her death revealed a full baby nursery, investigators said.

I applaud Ms. Brady for her bravery.
In these times where there are more and more stories of woman being killed by family because of their pregnancy, or being murdered so that someone can steal the baby to call their own (See news link below).
We need to better protect not only our children but we must, as a people, need to take steps to protect pregnant women.
Ms Brady was lucky and was able to overcome her attacker, but at the stage of pregnancy, how many other women would be able to do the same?
