TAMPA — The woman whose boyfriend tricked her into taking an abortion pill is suing the pharmacy involved.

Remee Jo Lee lost her baby six or seven weeks into her pregnancy after she took the drug given to her by John Andrew Welden earlier this year. Welden pleaded guilty Sept. 9 to a federal charge of product tampering, and both sides are recommending a sentence of more than 13 years in federal prison as part of a plea deal.

The Sunlake Pharmacy in Lutz was implicated in the case in Welden’s plea agreement, which describes Welden enlisting an employee to help in the medication ruse. Welden forged his physician father’s name on a prescription for the drug Cytotec.
