View Diary: A fetus is not a person if it costs us money, says Catholic Church (238 comments)

  •  The case illustrates why the fetus is a person (9+ / 0-)

    laws are a goal of the RW. Most likely the other reason why the Catholics are using it to illustrate how it affects law and justice. (Which I think will backfire.)

    Another argument has been used to include a fetus in cases where the victim and fetus were outright murdered. That the government has a legitimate interest in protecting the rights of citizens to reproduce. IIRC, this did not raise the fetus's status to citizen. It allowed the severity of the government's punishment to be increased, not as much as multiple accounts of murder.
