Unborn Victims of Violence
Proponents of this legislation do not aim to protect women. In fact, they have consistently rejected proposals that would appropriately punish violence against women by enhancing the penalty when a criminal act results in harm to a pregnant woman. Enhanced penalties would put the focus of the law where it should be: on the potentially devastating loss or injury to the woman that occurs when her pregnancy is compromised. Unfortunately, the House has moved ahead with this anti-choice legislation in an attempt to erode the very foundation of the right to choose by elevating the status of a fetus in the eyes of the law.
