This petition had 4,654 supporters
Aggravated battery is not an excuse for committing a senseless act on a mother and taking the life of her unborn child.
We need to have Indiana amend law 35-42-2-1.5 to remove aggravated battery on a fetus to MURDER.
"I AM PLEADING WITH YOU TODAY WITH ALL MY HEART"
I ask that you carefully think about my plea and put yourself in my place. On MAY 4th, 2017, Jonathan McGee ended the life of our daughter Brittany and her unborn child, she lovingly called “Peanut”.
"THE TWO DAYS I WILL NEVER FORGET" IN APRIL/MAY, 2017 and I WILL NEVER FORGET THESE TWO DAYS. THE FIRST DAY, It was the end of April and approximately two weeks after her 18th Birthday. Brittany called us with the most EXCITING NEWS, you could hear the tears in her voice. Mom she said, it's official you guys are going to be grandparents. This was my husbands and I first grand baby. She said the ultrasound went well and Peanut looks to be happy and healthy. She said mom, I have another Ultrasound scheduled for MAY 16th, do you think you can get off work to go with me.
They are going to tell us what little PEANUT IS.
We said, “I LOVE YOU AND THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I HEARD HER VOICE” My daughter was everything to me. We shared a special bond and everyone always said she was like my twin. It was indescribable, not many people have the mother daughter relationship like I have/had with my girls and for that I AM GRATEFUL.
"THE SECOND DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET" May 4th, 2017. Every mother wants to protect her child and I was not able to do so. Never in a million years and more than a thousand miles away at 9:30 in the morning did I ever think I would be getting the worst call of my life. On the other end of the phone they said that my daughter was fighting for her and her unborn baby's life.
At about 9:00 in the morning on May 4th, 2017, Jonathan McGee knowingly and willfully committed a felony act. He pulled out a 9mm handgun and shot 12 rounds into the back of a home that our daughter was visiting. One of the bullets struck our daughter and her unborn child. As our daughter laid there on the floor bleeding out and scared to death, she was fighting for her and her unborn baby's life. When the EMT showed up, the last words they said she said was "PLEASE DON'T LET ME LOSE MY BABY". On the way to the hospital they lost Brittany twice. Arriving at the hospital they came out and told my family that she was a very sick girl, but she was stable and that she was being taken into surgery. That was the last time I talked to my family before my husband and I boarded an airplane back to INDIANAPOLIS. Minutes later, Doctor’s came out and told my family they did not just lose one but that they lost them both, and that she put up a good fight and they believe the LAST HEARTBEAT WAS THE BABY. When I landed in Indianapolis got off the plan, I was surrounded by my family as they told me that at 11:47 AM EST time BRITTANY and PEANUT had lost their life's.
I wake up every night and day with the nightmares thinking about her fighting for her life and her unborn child because of a SENSELESS ACT. I can’t stop thinking about how scared she was as she was laying there bleeding out and asking the question over and over, if her and her baby was going to die. "A MOTHER’S WORST NIGHTMARE.” I still cannot believe she is gone and that I will never see her beautiful face, hear her laughter, or see her smile bright up a room ever again.
“SHE WILL NEVER BE A MOTHER”
She was so excited about becoming a mother and Jonathan McGee stole that and her future away in a matter of minutes. My daughter and Peanut no longer have a voice. On May 4th, 2017, I made a promise to stand up and be their voice. So here I am today ASKING and PLEADING for YOUR HELP.
I'M PLEADING WITH YOU TO PLEASE HELP ME CHANGE THE LAW IN BRITTANY AND PEANUT’S HONOR. PEANUT WAS SOMEBODY’S BABY, SOMEBODY’S GRANDCHILD, SOMEBODY’S NIECE OR NEPHEW.
As you and I know there is many things that can keep you alive in this world, however without a heartbeat this is NOT POSSIBLE. Peanut had a heartbeat just like his mother, just like you or I. Just because PEANUT did not get to breathe the same air as you and I and we did not get to hold him/her does not mean he/she was not a Human Being.
"OUR HEARTS ALL BEAT THE SAME"
It should not matter if Brittany was 1 week pregnant or 40 weeks pregnant. If Peanut was 2 years old or 18 years old. Peanut’s heartbeat would always be the same as ours, the ONLY difference is HE OR SHE WOULD HAVE HAD A NAME. PLEASE help me convince them that our babies are still AS HUMAN AS YOU AND I, and they should be TREATED AS SUCH.
Jonathan McGee is being charged with ATTEMPTED MURDER on the man he came to kill and MURDER on our daughter Brittany and AGGRAVATED BATTERY ON OUR UNBORN GRANDCHILD. We are asking that if someone commits a felony act on a pregnant woman at any stage of their pregnancy to be held accountable for their actions. I believe this should fall in the category of ''MURDER"
Please keep in mind this could have been your daughter or grandchild.
