In Indiana, Purvi Patel, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for what she says was a miscarriage, has been freed. In 2015, Patel was convicted of feticide, becoming the first person in U.S. history sentenced to prison for what the state said was an attempt to end her own pregnancy. Her conviction sparked widespread outrage. In July, her conviction was overturned. She walked free from an Indianapolis prison on Thursday.
