The Colorado DA announced that no murder charges will be filed against Lane. Sure, there will be dozens of other charges related to, among other things, attempted murder of Wilkins, but there will be nothing on her rap sheet indicating that she killed a person. That’s because, of course, in Colorado and in the rest of the country, an unborn infant doesn’t count as a person. Yes, some states have laws allowing the baby to be a person if she’s killed by someone other than her mother (a dynamic that doesn’t feel any more just, in my eyes) but, still, nationwide unborn children are legally slaughtered every day. 60 million and counting since 1973.
