Nothing. Under the Progressives definitions the blob of tissue is not considered a life until it has a job and is no longer living in the basement. ^ this ***

Depends on what choice the mother was legally exercising over her own body....

 

I suppose they could arrest you and toss you into jail. The Prosecutor seeks a 50 year sentence, hard time on bread and tea.

 

Then the woman's mother comes forward with evidence documenting that her daughter wasn't actually breaking into your house to kill you, but that she thought she was climbing thru the window of the local abortion mill for her 3 o' clock service.

So the Prosecutor approaches the judge as says "Your honor, we'd like to go ahead and dismiss that 2 fer 1 deal and proceed with just straight manslaughter on the mother. We'll take 25 years with time off for good behavior."

 

"What?" says the husband as he stands up from his seat.

"I didn't know anything about an abortion. He shot my child and now you are saying it isn't a crime?"

Judge- "No, your wife said it wasn't a crime. 25 years it is. (bangs gavel) Next!"

When authorities failed to secure an indictment against Jemison, they decided to seek charges against Jones.


Sounds like the state just wanted to stick someone in jail. When they couldn't get one woman, they went after the other.

So if the charges stick, the legal precedent is to charge a pregnant woman with manslaughter or attempted manslaughter for anything she does which may endanger the pregnancy.

Well, elections are coming. A guy has to get his name in the papers somehow.

According to the article below they are violating the letter of the law by prosecuting the mother of the unborn child which is specifically prohibited.

Perhaps they need to add teeth to the provision that prohibits prosecuting the mother such as making it a felony to arrest and prosecute the mother since that may be the only way to prevent illegal prosecutions and arrests.

NY Times

Prosecutors in Alabama said on Wednesday that they were dropping a manslaughter charge against a woman over the death of the fetus she was carrying when she was shot in the belly, in a case that stirred national outrage.
...
Alabama has prosecuted hundreds of women for using controlled substances while they are pregnant, under a 2006 "chemical endangerment" law, according to an investigation by ProPublica and Al.com. Doctors have argued that such prosecutions discourage pregnant addicts from seeking the treatment that they and their fetuses need.

Although many in Alabama felt Ms. Jones had acted irresponsibly and deserved to be punished for endangering her unborn baby, many in Pleasant Grove also expressed sympathy for her loss and felt she deserved mercy. Kristina Poole, 34, a caregiver for the disabled and elderly, said prison was not an appropriate punishment for Ms. Jones.

"She lost a baby," she said. "She's been punished enough."

To answer the original question, it depends on your political affiliation. Democrat: It's not alive, therefore it can't be murdered. Republican: It has a beating heart, and therefore is alive. It was murder. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
