Philly’s DA is charging the alleged killer of a woman who was 5-months pregnant with the murder of both the woman and her unborn baby. These cases highlight the idiocy of our current law. If a mother chooses to abort, she’s carrying not a baby, but a fetus (which, we’re told, has no right to life). If the mother’s fetus is terminated without her consent, then she’s carrying a baby not a fetus (which has a right to life). Maybe Specter and his staff can write a letter to Roberts about this.
