    Civil rights begin at birth, so no, it's not two people.  The question is asking if the criminal deserves a harsher sentence.  Once a person violates our trust and kills, he goes to jail.  What's the point of piliing on after that?

    Does the guy in Colorado get 1/10 the food of a single murder or something?  If a person is going away for decades or life, it's because they can't be safely let loose, not that they're being punished "extra hard".  What sense is that?

      The people that are proposing those laws that establish "fetal personhood" by treating the non-consensual termination of a pregnancy as murder aren't actually concerned with what is and isn't a just sentence.  What they're concerned with is putting another arrow in their quiver for the day they march up to the Supreme Court to argue for the reversal of Roe v Wade.
