I wonder how this case will end?

This case will probably morph into an assault case…but it should make us all ask certain legal and moral questions.

Authorities say a 37-year-old Los Angeles man has been arrested on suspicion of murder for the death of an unborn child believed to be his….Police say the arrest came after an investigation on Monday revealed "suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage." Investigators estimate the fetus was in its 13th week.

 

Why should this suspect be arrested for suspicion of murder, when the mother could have legally aborted the child with the praise and adoration of many?  Why is the “fetus” considered a child and therefore “able to be murdered” only in certain cases?  Why would the method of the killing make an abortion legal, while in an assault situation it becomes murder? 

We are clearly a very confused culture and society.  We want to make excuses for our leniency and even in some cases taking pleasure in abortion/murder, while at the same time we want to be able to call the act murder when there is an assault involved the the mother wanted the baby.  There is something twisted and perverse about all this.
