John Andrew Walden, 29, expressed remorse for giving his now ex-girlfriend,  Remee  Jo Lee, 27, an abortion pill disguised as an antibiotic. The  judge said Monday that Welden  is going to pay the consequences.

A twisted Florida man was sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison for  tricking his ex-girlfriend into taking an abortion pill last year and killing  their 6-week old fetus.

John Andrew Welden, 29, apologized Monday for his actions as a federal judge  in Tampa handed down the 13 year, 8 month sentence. But his victim, former  girlfriend Remee Jo Lee, demanded the judge show the calculating fiend “the same  amount of mercy that he showed me during my pregnancy,”

“This wasn’t just a case to me,” Lee told the judge. “This was the death of my child.”

Welden and Lee, 27, had been romantically involved for nearly seven months  when they learned last February that Lee was pregnant. The news, however, did  not unite them.

Lee was ecstatic about becoming a mother, but Welden, who was working on a  degree in sports medicine, wanted her to terminate the pregnancy.

“I was never going to do anything but go full term with it, and he didn’t  want me to,”

Welden’s father, an obstetrician in the town of whom his son worked  for, examined Lee and confirmed the pregnancy.

The bottle actually contained Cytotec pills, which induce labor and result in  abortion.

Trusting Welden, Lee ingested one of the pills and went to work.

“He came to my house with the pills, his weapon of choice,”

On Sunday, Lee fell ill and experienced vaginal bleeding. Doctors at  a hospital told her she had suffered a miscarriage caused by Cytotec.
