Jones, 27, was indicted Wednesday by a Jefferson County grand jury, AL.com reports.

According to authorities, the incident took place at around noon on December 4, 2018.

The shooting happened outside a Dollar General store on December 4, 2018. She was taken to UAB Hospital.

Technically speaking, a baby has a very low survival rate outside of the mother's womb at five months.

A shooting in Alabama has led to manslaughter charges, but little else about the case is typical.

When authorities failed to secure an indictment against Jemison, they made a decision to seek charges against Jones.

Reid said Jones started the fight over the unborn baby's father.

Police rationale: "Let's not lose sight that the unborn baby is the victim here, " says police Lt. Danny Reid.

The ability to prosecute a pregnant woman over the death of her unborn baby is legislated by Alabama's criminal code.

At the time, she said she looked "forward to seeing more Papua New Guineans working with Australian employers under the Pacific Labour Scheme".

"The only victim we have here is that unborn child", Reid said. "She had no choice in being brought unnecessarily into a fight where she was relying on her mother for protection".

Jones is being held in Jefferson County Jail where she is being held on $50,000 bond. A bullet struck Jones in the stomach, and her fetus didn't survive.

In Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court said that if unborn children are persons, then they have the right to life. "Her shooter remains free", wrote Alabama-based abortion group The Yellowhammer Fund on Twitter.

Ilyse Hogue, a leading abortion rights activist and president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, tweeted, "This what 2019 looks like for a pregnant woman of color without means in a red state".

The Washington Post states that a subsequent police investigation determined Jemison shot Jones in self-defence.

An Alabama woman has been charged with manslaughter in connection to a shooting where her unborn child was killed.

Lynn Paltrow, executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women, said women across the country have been prosecuted for manslaughter or murder for having an abortion or experiencing a miscarriage. "And after that, another, for not obtaining adequate prenatal care".

"As a reproductive justice fund, we commit ourselves to making sure that Marshae is released from jail on bond, assisting with her legal representation, and working to ensure that she gets justice for the multiple attacks that she has endured", the group said on Facebook.
