52. my goodness
And isn't that just exactly what all the proponents of "fetal homicide" laws (which at present exempt the pregnant woman from prosecution) told you would NOT happen??

US states' "fetal homicide" laws at present exempt physicians who perform abortions that comply with state abortion laws from prosecution, too ...

Meanwhile, exempting the woman from prosecution in cases like this still constitutes denying the other party involved in the act the equal protection of the law.

It's all or nothing: either all abortions are treated in the law as if they were homicide, or none are. There ain't no middle ground possible.
