Man charged in murder of unborn child

Published: March 2, 2013

Regarding “Murderer will spend his life in prison” (Feb. 23): A convicted murderer was sentenced to life in prison for killing his wife. An additional 500 years was added to his sentence for causing the death of the woman's unborn child. Meanwhile, somewhere else, medical personnel are washing blood off their hands from performing an abortion on a woman, and she's smiling because she won't be inconvenienced by bearing a child and having to raise it.

Something is dreadfully wrong with our morals and justice system! When is killing an unborn child murder and when is it “just an abortion”?
