I kind of am dusting off this thread because I heard something on NPR today which was interesting and I didn't think it was exactly covered here on this thread.
In Roe Versus Wade.... basically the law is that the woman and her doctor have control over the fetus. THROUGH the 2nd trimester.
After the 2nd trimester, the fetus is protected by authorities greater than woman& doctor. the fetus then is protected by state/fed.
So, with that in mind.... since the death of connor occured in the third trimester his death really does not jeopardize roe v. wade. And I think Scott should be tried for his murder too.
now on a similiar note and one that may have already been covered here in Activism..... but last month Gov. Jeb Bush appointed a guardian to protect the life of an unborn baby. This baby is inside an institutionalized woman who is 22 and severely developmentally disabled and autistic. She lives with cerebral palsy and seizure disorder. She cannot speak. She can't stand or take a step without assistance. She weighs only 88 pounds.
"In April, say officials of the Department of Children and Families, they discovered she was approximately five months pregnant. She is unable to consent to sexual intercourse. Her pregnancy is a result of rape. Doctors stress that her disabilities are multiple and severe, making this a high-risk pregnancy that endangers her life. "http://www.workers.org/ww/2003/prochoice0529.php
What is most sad and telling....is the gov. did not appoint a guardian for this woman. First and foremost thought, protect the fetus. Not the mom.
I guess it is an agenda.
