27-year-old Marshae Jones was pregnant when she was shot and lost her baby on December 4, 2018. Her shooter Ebony Jemison was arrested but had the charges against her dismissed. Instead Marshae was charged with manslaughter. Marshae did not shoot the bullet that killed her child nor was she armed but she was still charged for allegedly initiating the fight and not protecting her unborn child.
The system where a pregnant mother is charged because she’s lost her baby after being shot is a broken one. The racist and sexist laws allowed something like this to happen. How can a killer walk away free while the victim is charged for the act of killing an unborn child?
Marshae has had an injustice done to her in being charged for her unborn child’s death while the shooter has walked away free. Sign this petition to help drop the charges against her and to charge the shooter again for her crimes.
