Why does murdering a pregnant woman count as a double homicide, but a pregnant woman murdering her baby counts as woman's rights?

    Because the law isn't written to please YOU.

    Because it involves the woman's choice in either case.

     Abortion is murder, unless mother's life threatened by the fetus. It's just " legal " in too many cases.

    This is ONLY part of law where murder can be "decided" in outside of a jury. Insane..

    It's only a "double murder" if the fetus is viable outside the womb, like 8 or 9 months, LONG after abortion becomes illegal.

    Liberal logic is really hard to figure out, huh?

    I have serious concerns about this legislation because the law cannot simultaneously provide that a fetus is a human being and protect the right of the mother to choose to terminate her pregnancy.

      The Unborn Victims of Violence Act was signed into law in 2004. Prior to it, the fetus in utero was, as a general rule, not recognized as a victim of federal crimes of violence.

    As hypocritical as it is, I'll still take the double murder charge. Don't give them any ideas.  They'll have the law changed.

    It depends upon the age of the fetus as to whether someone can be legally brought up on two charges of murder.  We talk about it as killing the mother and her unborn child; but, it does not meaning, legally, that the assailant will receive a charge of two counts of murder.

    Because. . . . . Double standard. The fetus has rights, unless the mother decides it doesn't.
