Nothing would be achieved in kicking a pregnant woman anyway.
Just because a small minority of people have done bad things, does not mean ever bit of news, as well as propaganda, is true.
None of the other American or Iraqi soldiers/civilians have come forward. No pregnant woman was taken to the hospital for bruising, internal injuries
or the like.
