    My thoughts EXACTLY!!!!! I also won't care if she was 3 weeks pregnant he should be charged b'c she didn't WANT an abortion and the baby in all likely hood would be born healthy and normal if left to do so ...... then he should be charged with BOTH murders.....

    Poor poor woman.... I feel so heart sick about this whole thing..... I am so soory for the baby Mom and both families.... No one should ever have to go through this misery....

    I saw on thenews last week where a woman gt a jail sentence for manslaughter because she hit another woman in the stomache and this resulted in a miscarriage. They proved intent to do harm to the baby.

    This law varies from state to state from what I understand.

    Where I am from a drunk driver got a manslaughter sentence when he hit a woman and she lost her unborn child due to the accident.
