Bethany Cox denies taking a drug with intent to destroy the life of a child that was capable of being born alive in 2020.
A woman has appeared in court to deny using poison to bring about an abortion as the first coronavirus lockdown period ended.
Bethany Cox, 22, from Eaglescliffe, Stockton-on-Tees, faces two charges at Teesside Crown Court in Middlesbrough.
Cox denies taking a drug with intent to destroy the life of a child that was capable of being born alive on July 6 2020 in the knowledge it would lead to the termination of the pregnancy.
The second alleged offence was administering a poison with intent to procure a miscarriage, between July 2 and July 7 2020.
The first lockdown restrictions were eased on July 4 2020.
The public gallery was almost full for the 15-minute hearing and Cox was followed into the court building by supporters.
A seven-day free trial was scheduled to start on January 15.
Judge Paul Watson KC granted Cox unconditional bail.
