344. Speaking of anti-choice language...

I really do get tired of this bullshit. Questions like that are directly part of the anti-choice language arsenal. I'd know, I served as a clinic escort and learned much about the terrorists who oppose the right to choose.

Murder is the crime of deliberately killing a person. Fetal personhood laws are designed to chip away at the concept that a fetus isn't a person, a necessary action to win a case to overturn Roe v. Wade. If a man causes a woman to lose her child, he has harmed the woman. Period. And he should be charged with harming the woman. Causing the loss of the child should be an aggravating circumstance that increases the penalty because of the emotional toll on the woman, but the crime is still against the woman.

If he is charged with the murder of a fetus but the woman can choose to end the pregnancy without penalty, it's only a matter of time before that is challenged in the courts as "unequal protection" under the law. The SCOTUS has narrowly downed 5-4 the last few challenges to Roe v. Wade and the anti-choice side is showing no signs of backing down. It doesn't matter that the statute protects the right to choose - the fetal personhood is the proverbial camel's nose under the tent.
