No murder charge in Craigslist case baby cut from womb - CNN.com


Makes me want to vomit. How on earth isn't she considered a murderer. The woman was seven months pregnant when she cut out the baby from her womb? I don't get this. When a pregnant woman is killed, the murderer is charged with two murders, not one. Does the mother have to die for the fetus' life to be acknowledged? This baby would have lived if not for this butcher!

That's what happens when a state's law doesn't consider an unborn baby as a person.

It depends on the state. Colorado has rejected laws that would have allowed them to charge the woman with murder. Abortion activists fought against that law to make abortions easier, and now this woman will not be charged with murder.

But we are talking about an unborn baby that was seven months, not seven week. There is no state that allows for abortions at seven months. So the fetus at that point is a fully developed human

Then why is there no murder charge? So, apparently not.

Colorado does. Here's one of the providers of 3rd term abortions in Colorado:

Third Trimester Abortion

Hopefully the district attorney and judge involved in the case will be thrown out of office. That's if the voters have brains.
