Woman found guilty of faking cancer to get late-term abortion

PHOENIX — An Arizona woman accused of faking a cancer diagnosis to get the state to pay for her late-term abortion was convicted of fraud and other charges Monday.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials said jurors found Chalice Renee Zeitner guilty of all 11 counts against her. The aggravation phase of her trial was scheduled to begin Monday afternoon.

Zeitner, 30, was tried on charges including fraudulent schemes, theft, forgery and identity theft.

She was accused of presenting falsified medical records to support her claim that she had cancer and telling an obstetrician that her pregnancy put her life in danger.

Investigators say the scheme was discovered a year after the 2010 abortion.

Zeitner’s attorney Adam Schwartz told jurors in opening statements that his client genuinely believed she had cancer and didn’t set out to defraud anyone.

According to attorneys for the state, Zeitner told her doctor in 2010 that she was undergoing chemotherapy and radiation for cancer and that her fetus had been exposed to radiation.

After a specialist found her fetus was healthy, they say Zeitner didn’t give up the alleged scheme and forged a letter from another doctor that stated her pregnancy had to be terminated to save her life.

The Arizona health care program in which Zeitner was enrolled covers the cost of abortions in limited circumstances, such as when a mother’s life is endangered. Prosecutors say she never mentioned cancer when she applied.

Zeitner allegedly claimed before her abortion that she had stage IV cancer in her abdomen and lower spine and told her obstetrician that she was scheduled to resume cancer treatment at a hospital in Boston.

I’ve heard of people faking cancer to get a “rug” but this is disgusting.

I spend 3 hours each morning at the entrance to an abortion mill with prolife signs.
I see a story like this, and I think: no novelist could dream up such a storyline.
