  •  I think a fetus has the POTENTIAL for life. (2+ / 0-)

    A man killed his wife when she was 7 months pregnant.  The California court ruled him a double murderer.  

    In my opinion the fetus has an incremental potential for life with each month of gestation, and so there is an incremental amount of rights that may be ascribed to the fetus, meaning that if a woman is stabbed but doesn't know she is pregnant, that would be assault for 1 person, but if she is 7 months pregnant with twins, that would be triple assault.

    In my opinion the Catholic Church won the battle, but hopefully they gave us the means to win the war.
