Today we are receiving more information about the murder of a 5 month pregnant woman in Villa Park. Even more tragic, the woman might have been stabbed to death in front of her 3 year old child.
Murder is wrong, almost everyone would agree with that.
My question here is why when a pregnant woman is murdered the murderer is often charge with two counts of murder?
The courts allow abortion with no charge of infanticide, which Eric Gilford might be charged with if he's found guilty of the crime, and yet millions of babies are killed with no charges brought to the mothers or doctors.
I'm not here to argue the law. Currently, Roe v. Wade, upheld by Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, is the law of the land, and thus Abortion is legal.
What I am trying to point is the inconsistency and inequality babies face in courts.
One baby's life is protected from murder while another baby's life is not. Seems pretty unfair to me.
In one court, the judge is saying the life of the baby in the womb is precious, while another court has stated that they are not alive, and therefore don't have a right to life. Such a contradiction.
Hypothetically speaking, what if a woman scheduled for an abortion tomorrow is killed today? Will the murderer be charged with two counts of murder even though she was going to kill it off tomorrow through a "medical procedure" as they like to say. Probably.
24 hours later though, the baby would be afforded no rights in a court of law. Odd.
Whoever murdered this mom in Villa Park, should face two counts of murder; he ended 2 lives.
I just wish all babies were considered "living".
