California Woman Charged With Murder Of Fetus
With abortion being legal there it seems 1st degree murder is a very hypocritical charge, criminal negligence causing death seems more appropriate.
She was taking drugs and this was massive negligence on her part for sure, and she should be charged with something, but if she is being charged with 1st degree murder, I would argue every abortion of healthy babies should have the same charge.
Have fun discussing this one, as it defies logical justice, and it makes both pro-choice and pro-life people mad either way.
And, word of warning, there's behavior among men that can cause more harm to their future offspring than the danged poppy seeds that got one lady in trouble.
Oh, excuse me.
while drawing a firm line between this and the women who falls down the stairs or forgets to wear a seat belt, of is just carrying groceries into the house because theres no one else around to do it.
Using the bama rules she attempted mass murder - dump her in the ocean and move on.
