No, as you've stated that is the ONLY reason they exist. Again, wanna retract that ?What a pathetic rebuttal!
Here's my contention, restated:
Doc, you can't prove it's wrong, so stop trying. As I've stated herein, FHLs exist for the protection of a woman's right to carry a wanted pregnancy to term by the vehicle of providing for additional punishment against the perpetrator,
Nothing wrong with that F Lee. It wouldn't be the first time it's been done.in the hopes of deterring violence against pregnant women. Not women by and for themselves, but PREGNANT women.
And, since FHLs isolate pregnant women from non-pregnant women, the only way to validate them is to designate the fetus as a separate victim, for the sole purpose of the illegal termination of a presumed wanted pregnancy.
Now, go find something better than your proposed line of bs, which obviously the legislature decided against.
You really think you're smart Doc; the "Unlawful Termination of Pregnancy Law."
Let's see; we'll charge the perp with unlawfully terminating a pregnancy and make him/her go to prison for say 20 years; then if mommy dies in the attack, and it was deliberate and intentional, we'll sentence him to life in prison, or put him on death row.
So he gets one sentence for a lesser crime and another sentence for a higher crime, both of which are likely to run consecutively.
And if mommy does NOT die in the assault but is only injured we have a mechanism for sentencing him beyond his punishment for the mere assault.So he gets to do 20 years before doing time for the murder of mommy. That's some way of getting around the 8th Amendment. Ain't it Doc?
Think Doc. I'm sure even you can do that.
See how that works F Lee ?
How is that getting around the 8th amendment ? You're wacky.
