Unborn Victims of Violence Act

Reply Wed 15 Apr, 2015 11:41 pm

It is a felony under federal law to cause the death of an unborn fetus during the commission of a violent crime. Many states also have laws that criminalize killing an unborn child.

Why then, do we give the mother special consideration by allowing her to kill one by means of an abortion? This was a consideration in the ROE v Wade case decided by the Supreme Court in 1972. The Court compromised by forbidding states to ban abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy. After that, they may ban and restrict it and many have.

Joe, I dislike abortion also but having said that I ask you just how horrified is the general public with abortion when they refuse to dip into their pockets to help people who cant afford to raise their kids. Forcing 12, 13, 14, ect. year old kids to have and raise their kids just makes another class of poor. That is why I think abortion is one way of stopping a poor class from being created until we finally do something to help the helpless.
