Major kudos to Michelle Malkin for addressing this controversial topic. I'm amazed at the contradicting positions our laws take on this issue. Scott can be convicted of murder, but the baby's mother could've opted to "get rid" of him legally with no legal repurcussions, had she so chosen. Is Conner counted as a life because his mom wanted him to be? Where is the "science" in that?
We don't want to teach our teens abstinence, but we're shocked when the dump a baby in the trash. Haven't we, the people, taught them that it's an insignificant lump of tissue? Why, then, should they be punished just because they don't have $400 or the worldly sophistication to find an abortion clinic? How in the world can we punish men for harming an unborn child when it is perfectly legal for a women to have it killed? This makes no sense!
The bottom line is this: either a fetus is a child or it's a lump of tissue. It is NOT both, and we have to choose. We cannot have it both ways and expect emotional, immature teens to understand our contradicting laws. Since I have mourned the terrible loss of my own unborn child, I know where I stand. How about you?
