A 30-year-old man from Amsterdam has been charged with causing a woman to miscarry her baby after putting ground-up medicine in her spaghetti, the Telegraaf reports on Tuesday.
The couple did not have a formal relationship and when the woman became pregnant the man said he did not want the baby, the paper says.
The woman complained to the police directly after eating the meal, saying she thought she had been poisoned.
The man later admitted putting the powdered arthritis drug Arthrotec in her food.
The pills contain a chemical called Misoprostol which is used in some countries to cause abortions, the paper says.
