First off, let me say that I am in favor of this law……
The State of Michigan just passed a new law that makes it a harsher penalty if you assault a pregnant woman than if you assault a woman who is not pregnant.
Why is that? According to the interview on the news last night it is because “pregnant women hold a special place in our society” and need to be valued more.
I couldn’t agree more.
But let’s look at it a moment. We’re going to make it a harsher penalty for someone who assaults a pregnant woman – but it’s still legal to perform an abortion and kill the life that is inside the pregnant woman?
So we’re making it a stronger penalty if you assault a woman who is pregnant but it’s okay to “get rid” the reason that a pregnant woman “holds a special place in our society?”
I don’t get it.
We’re saying that unborn babies make a woman special. I agree.
But we’re inconsistent in our message……..
