TAMPA, Florida -- The last post on Andrew Welden's Facebook page is as sad as it is chilling. Just four simple words: "Please pray for me."

Welden is facing a possible life sentence after the feds accused him of tricking his girlfriend, 26-year-old Remee Lee, into taking an abortion pill.

According to the federal indictment, 28-year-old Welden forged the signature of his physician father, Dr. Stephen Welden, an OB/GYN, for a prescription pill that can terminate pregnancy. He then allegedly switched the label to make it look like a bottle of antibiotics.

Lee lost the baby a short time later.

There's no answer at Welden's Lake Magdalene home. Neighbors say he shares the house with his brother and was very quiet.  According to his Facebook page, Welden was a pre-med student at the University of South Florida.

The alleged crime is so egregious, it's already blowing up radio talk shows. Welden's father's medical office in Carrollwood was quiet after hours.
