Since in your eyes it was a wholly separate life that was ended, do you agree with the manslaughter charges that have been brought against women in recent history who have unwittingly caused miscarriages or stillbirths based on their own risky behavior? These cases have mainly covered women who had been addicted to drugs, and at least one case involved a failed suicide attempt killing the fetus but not the mother. If you agree, should we begin investigating more miscarriages?
Since a prenatal child is no different than a born child, then it stands to reason that manslaughter, murder, or child abuse charges should be brought against any mother who kills or abuses her child, born or not.
Taking illegal drugs while pregnant is the equivalent of directly injecting those same drugs into a two year old. Should this be investigated as child abuse? Absolutely.
It will require a shift in our culture before people start thinking like this. Once all of us understand that life begins at fertilization, many of the horrible problems that plague our world will begin to correct themselves. How can we hold value for the dignity of human life when we destroy it through abortion by the hundreds of thousands every single week on this planet? Over 5,000 prenatal human beings are killed every hour!
