House bill gives unborn `victim status’

Posted by ALmod on January 20, 2006

I have some pretty strong feelings about this bill, especially after finding out that I am going to be a mommy. I think that our legislators have done the right thing, here.

The only point that I would possibly question would be a charge of homicide in some cases. A woman can be pregnant for some time without showing. Harm to the unborn may be unintentional, or the attacker may not have chosen to attack that woman had they known of her condition. While this would be no less of a tragedy, a lesser charge of manslaughter might be more appropriate.

    A very insightful comment. Would you consider running for a state legislature office?

    Dang! another Word Verification that is difficult for me to read.
