    On the worst night of her life, Tracy Marciniak -- nine months pregnant -- was brutally attacked by her own husband. He punched her in the abdomen and then kept her from calling for help. Tracy nearly died from the assault, and her son Zachariah -- just five days from his due date -- bled to death from blunt-force trauma. A picture taken at his funeral shows a grieving mother holding what appears to be a healthy, sleeping baby. Seeing the picture, most people would see two victims of crime. But incredibly, some lawmakers insist that there's only one victim...

    There is an item on the Senate's legislative calendar of which I was recently reminded by a good friend. The bill is S. 1019, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, and was introduced by Sen. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio) on May 7, 2003. In his introduction of the bill, Sen.

But, tragically, if you commit a Federal crime of violence...
