A murderer? Maybe fifteen years.
But if you're a woman in distress who's so compromised by a hopeless who in a moment of desperation and mental stress tries to commit suicide, the fetus dies and she's facing 45 years? Is facing a sentence worse than a serial killer?
Her lawyer insists Shuai was mentally ill at the time she attempted to take her life, and calls the case "absolutely frightening" and a slippery slope
