About a month ago, a young, pregnant woman was brutally murdered and the premature baby she was carrying was cut out of her body and dumped in a receptacle and left to die. When the police were called to the scene, they discovered the tiny infant was still alive but barely. He was rushed to the hospital. He was on life support and the medical staffed labored over him for the next month. Sadly, however, the battle was lost and the little baby boy died.
I found an interesting unspoken narrative about the case. When the baby died, the police said that would mean two murder cases against the killers. I totally agree with that as two human beings were murdered that horrible day. However, there are only 38 states that recognize an unborn child as a victim in the carrying out of a murder upon a pregnant woman. So justice for this little boy was only because he was murdered in a state that believed the unborn baby was, in fact, a human baby. If the baby’s death had died in California, the murders would have gotten away with only one count of murder. Although this view would not change the fact that two people died, it minimizes life in the womb in all but 38 states.
Recently, overwhelmingly due to the democrats, babies are not treated as babies in the womb if the mother opts for abortion. Even more horrendous is that there are no provisions in some states that if the baby is born alive, the medical staff will give the mother time to decide whether or not to go ahead with the ‘abortion’ after the fact. The recently deceased infant had a much better end result to his tragic premature birth. He had warmth, care, medicine, little pain and died peacefully.
