Can anyone explain how this ‘late term’ abortion qualifies as murder in the eyes of the law? After all, Libs keep winning the right to kill babies in courts all the time so how is this murder and doctor provided abortion not? Rat poison, salt water...whats the functional difference?

Part of what may be going on here, legally speaking, is that Indiana changed their fetal harm laws after an incident a couple of years ago where a bank robber shot a pregnant teller in the stomach (she lost both children).

I understand, it’s just that I find it mindblowing that the law sees the death of a fetus as murder if life ends in any non-natural/non-accidental way... except for abortion.

It’s a complete disconnect and I cannot fathom how they justify it.

I think it’s meant to get a test case up to the USSC to catch Roe v. Wade in a logical pincer maneuver it can’t escape from. At this point, all the evidence that a pre-born baby is a human individual, which the Roe court said it had none of, can be brought to bear in order to form a new doctrine.
