A heavily pregnant young woman is mourning the loss of her unborn baby who died in the womb after her drunk partner kicked her in the stomach.
Jessy Johnson, 19, of Hemsworth, England fell to the floor in pain after her boyfriend Stuart Samson, 37, kicked her while inside a bar and whispered in her ear telling her not to call an ambulance to avoid social services getting involved, a court heard.
Samson also warned Miller not to call an ambulance because “social services would get involved.” Scared for her safety, Johnson left the bar and went to her mother’s house without calling for medical help. When she woke up the next day, Johnson couldn’t feel her unborn daughter, Milla Francis, moving.
“The prosecution told me because the baby had not been born they didn’t see her as being human – even though she was full-term,” Johnson said.

Hemsworth police said that they have arrested 37-year-old Stuart Samson, after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend.
In court, Samson pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm.
Judge Guy Kearl sentenced Samson to serve 2 years and 9 months in prison.
19-year-old Jessy Johnson slammed the lenient sentence and criticized prosecutors for not charging her boyfriend with murder in connection with the death of her unborn daughter, Mila Francis.
Johnson claims that prosecutors told her that since her baby wasn’t born, they did not consider her human.
According to the police investigation, Johnson and Samson were at a bar together five days before Mila Francis was supposed to be born.
An argument broke out, during which Samson kicked Johnson in the stomach.
Johnson suffered terrible pain as a result of the kick.
Johnson went to her mother’s home because she no longer wanted to be with her boyfriend.
The following day, Johnson realized that her baby was not moving.
She went to the hospital, where tests showed that the baby had died in her womb.
Doctors later delivered the dead baby, and Johnson was allowed to hold her for some time.
