I have been watching the news and have heard a few debates on this. The main argument given is that he should not be charged with the murder of a "viable fetus" since it was not born. I have been reading throught the thread regarding abortion and have been thinking a lot on my views about this in general. My first thought when seeing the Scott Peterson debate on the news was that sure he should be charged with both murders. Then my hubby said, then you have to be pro-life too (in terms of the fetus being a person with rights and so on). Anyway, we had a big discussion about whether or not he should be charged with both.

n my opinion, it's a much worse fate to spend the rest of your long life in prison, getting raped by the inmates and struggling for survival - Marcy

So while I grieve for Connor's short life (and yes, I do believe fetuses are alive in utero, it's medically absurd to believe otherwise because they can obviously die), I don't think Scott should be charged with his murder.
And I hope he rots in hell if it's proven he killed Laci and by extension, his own son.
