If you do not succeed, would it be right to be judged guilty for trying to kill the baby? Why?
While this is a true fact, the actual numbers of pregnant women dying from murder is really low compared to the number of unpregnant women murdered. The recent deaths of pregnant women-Laci P., Lori H., Bobbie Jo S. and the most heartbreaking to me, Lisa Underwood and her son Jayden have made huge media headlines lately. This has prompted more of an awareness of domestic abuse that so many are unaware of.Dayle Record said:Maybe they would be just trying to beat the murderer to the punch? Since the number one cause of death in pregnant women is murder.
That would vary depending on what the views of people interpreting/making the law are towards the fetus (that sticky pro life/pro choice subject).loseyourname said:Haven't found anything on the books regarding whether or not a pregant suicide attempt can be charged with attempted murder (though I highly doubt it).
