Deputies said an Inman man was accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend and killing the unborn baby.
Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center to speak with a woman who had been beaten up.
The woman told deputies that her boyfriend, 21-year-old Michael Ellenburg, was upset when she returned home late about 3 a.m. after spending time with friends. She said he ran towards her, punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground.
As the woman lie on the ground, Ellenburg continued to punch her in the face and kneed her in the stomach, deputies said.
Deputies said Ellenburg knew the victim was 10-and-a-half weeks pregnant, and they have two other children together. Before investigators left the hospital, they learned the baby died.
Ellenburg was arrested and charged with aggravated criminal domestic violence and later released on a $10,000 bond.
I know what you’re thinking – Why isn’t that scumbag charged with murder?
10 and 1/2 weeks is still first trimester. Is the fetus a human life or isn’t it?
Because if you think he should be charged with murder then you think abortion is murder.
Just something to think about.
