I would imagine pro choice people or dems have scrambled to change that law where they can or is it still a double homicide in 50 states?
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-212) is a United States law which recognizes a child in utero as a legal victim, if they are injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence.
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act was strongly opposed by most pro-choice organizations, on grounds that the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision said that the human fetus is not a "person" under the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and that if the fetus were a Fourteenth Amendment "person," then they would have a constitutional right to life. However, the laws of 38 states also recognize the human fetus as the legal victim of homicide (and often, other violent crimes) during the entire period of pre-natal development (27 states) or during part of the pre-natal period (nine states).
The pro-life community, as well and the National Republican Platform, are pushing hard to amend the constitution to give an embryo the same rights as its host! That would make elective abortion illegal across the board and that is why a vote for Trump is a vote against women's rights.
