I am by no means minimizing the deaths of at least 3 women in the United States who have been murdered and in fact, were pregnant at the time.
Fox News recently did a story on pregnant women murder victims, complete with a graphic stating '20% of Pregnant Women are Murdered" (thanks to Chris over at Dangerous Logic for this info).
That fact makes me worried for all the Catholic Mothers out there with four kids. There going to be killed during the fifth pregnancy.
I'm guessing that Fox wants us to know that 20% of all female murder victims are pregnant at the time of their deaths. What percentage of women are pregnant at any given time? Probably a lot less than 20%...so those geniuses over at Fox News are on to something.
I don't think we need to convene a congressional hearing to agree that killing anyone, let alone pregnant women, is a heinous thing. Killing a woman who is pregnant with your child is awful. The problem lies with the men, of course.
The Scott Petersens and Billy Cutts of the world are subhuman. How is it that they get laid to start with?
And don't get me started on the AssHats who are able to kill their own children. Maybe it's the summer of Family Killing.
