It seems that if a soldier kills a woman and she is with child the soldier can be charged with 2 murders even if he/she did not know the woman was with child. http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/919a This is interesting that in the US a soldier can be charged with murder of a fetus but a Dr can not. Even more to the point that President Obama, as Commander in Chief, is making these charges even though he supported allowing a Dr kill a fetus that was born live as a result of a botched abortion.

Don't worry, it'll get changed as soon as the progressives figure out that it's worded that way. Can't have fetuses classified as human and having their lives actually matter, now can we? Thing is, the SCIENCE of human developement is advanced to the point that we can actually see the egg and sperm meet, the cell division and orginization, the organs develope, the tiny heart beat and hands and feet form. All before the end of the thrid month. I have seen a video of a fetus that reacts to probing stimulus by holding it's tiny little hands up in front of itself. How can anyone say this is not human? If you take a look at this video, there are others to the right of it, showing an abortion. I was not brave enough to look. I've carried life and given birth. I knew when I was pregnant before the doctor did. In fact, I was told it was way to early to tell, this back in 1975, but I was right. Now,science has progressed so much that we can actually WATCH this whole process of human development from conception to birth. God help us as a nation for killing them. Human life is so cheap in the eyes of those who perform abortions. Every woman who is considering this should have to view this video.

I'm sorry, I know you posted on a law that classifies fetuses as human, not abortion. But it is impossible not to make the link in my mind. IF it is murder to kill a wanted baby, why is it legal to kill an unwanted one?

Because the baby was probably a accident.

Maybe YOU were an accident too, you like being alive?

Sgt. Bales has NOT been charged with murder for killing a fetus and these charges have been made by the military and not by Obama. despite the fact that he is the commander in chief.

Wow I did not know this. I don’t know if I am impressed or scared at all the hideous crimes pregnant women may decide to do simply because they cannot be killed. I wonder how it will turn out for that soldier. Please post again and update us.
