Fetal abduction is defined as 'the kidnapping of an unborn child by forcing a pregnant mother to comply with an early delivery, sometimes using forceps or in some cases reaching into the womb and then taking the fetus directly from the mother'. If the mother does not survive then it is a case of Murder-Abduction. In the case of fetal abduction without murder, it is considered a child kidnapping and is a violation of the law and subject to federal penalties. This book studies the cases and the perpetrators.

They Know Us Better Than We Know Ourselves

Since its emergence in the 1960s, belief in alien abduction has saturated popular culture, with the ubiquitous image of the almond-eyed alien appearing on everything from bumper stickers to bars of soap. Drawing on interviews with alleged abductees from the New York area, Bridget Brown suggests a new way for people to think about the alien phenomenon, one that is concerned not with establishing whether aliens actually exist, but with understanding what belief in aliens in America may tell us about our changing understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. They Know Us Better Than We Know Ourselves looks at how the belief in abduction by extraterrestrials is constituted by and through popular discourse and the images provided by print, film, and television. Brown contends that the abduction phenomenon is symptomatic of a period during which people have come to feel increasingly divested of the ability to know what is real or true about themselves and the world in which they live. The alien abduction phenomenon helps us think about how people who feel left out create their own stories and fashion truths that square with their own experience of the world.
