Great News!
WASHINGTON - The Senate passed the Unborn Victims of Violence Act on Thursday, following House passage last month of a bill that would make it a crime to harm a fetus during a violent federal crime.

Yes! It's about time. This law makes perfect sense and is an added protection for women. All women will benefit from this bill because it's not always obvious that a woman is pregnant (the law describes the baby as "a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.") Therefore, the possibility of a second life may be a deterrence. I admit that a thug who will attack a woman will probably not give a flying fig about her baby, but he'll certainly care when he's sentenced to twice the amount of time he would have gotten otherwise. But of course, the real goal is to protect that growing life inside of her.

Naturally, the feminists have no interest in protecting women. The usual suspects fought against it. Amendments were proposed by Feinstien and Murray, but both were defeated.

I love this quote:
"This would be the first time in federal law that an embryo or fetus is recognized as a separate and distinct person under the law, separate from the woman," said NARAL president Kate Michelman. "Much of this is preparing for the day the Supreme Court has a majority that will overrule Roe v. Wade."
Lord, haste the day.
