I have mixed feelings on the abortion issue. Medical science has blurred the lines of when a person becomes (and ceases being) a person. At least in my opinion, that is where disagreements over the abortion issue arise. I think both sides of the debate make valid points.
However, the law makes things even muddier. This guy here kicked a pregnant woman, causing her to miscarry. He is being charged with manslaughter, which means that the unborn child is considered to be a person. If it was the mother who decided to abort the pregnancy, then the unborn child is considered to be just a piece of tissue.
I think this is inconsistent, and the law shouldn’t have it both ways.
