I thought you couldn't "kill" a fetus? How can you charge someone with "attempted murder of an unborn child?

looks like some poeple want things both ways..........

Thats wierd. How can the Mom murder the fetus, but not the Dad? If she kills her fetus, Isnt she killing the guys child too?
Anyway, what a piece of chit of a human being...

It's really not a business, although it has caused some businesses to spring up around it. The abortion business, for instance.

Hmmmm, now let's see.......this week an unborn fetus is human? Because it's convenient to make sure this is duly noted as a heinous crime against a woman (which it is)? So what if mom kills it? Then it's her "choice"? What a stupid, twisted bit of obvious hypocrisy, but still the abortionists press on.

The title makes it sound like he's going to get in a time machine and go back to when his wife was in utero.

It's not a fetus, it's "tissue matter." Just ask NARAL. What would happen if he came into an abortion clinic and did this to her during her abortion "procedure?" What if he killed the fetus/"tissue matter" at the same time it was being aborted? Would he still be charged?

This is why the abortion issue has many gray areas.

In a world that seemingly holds no value on human life, this is what we get. In this guy's eyes, what he was doing was probably ok.

No state that allows abortion should prosecute for this man for attempting to destroy a fetus.

Either call abortion what it really is, or let this man go free and try defending that decision.

If a woman makes a conscious, voluntary decision to terminate a pregnancy, that is HER choice (since the fetus is tissue within, and feeding off of, HER body). If a man (or woman: let's be fair) assaults that woman with the intention of harming tissue within that woman's body, it is obviously NOT her choice: that is assault, or attempted murder. Anything within my body is MINE, even moreso if that anything is USING my body (that is to say, feeding off of it). Get it through your thick skulls, primates: what that guy did was attempted murder. Murder and abortion (the voluntary purging of a clump of nonviable cells) are two VERY different things. Not that I expect you Bible-bangers to comprehend that....
