A pregnant woman was killed in Queens. Witnesses heard her scream, “He’s going to kill the baby!” The attacker stabbed her repeatedly, including multiple stabs into her belly. It would seem he was indeed targeting the baby. The killer turned out to be the victim’s ex-boyfriend. He was caught and will be charged with one count of murder in the second degree.
You may ask, what exactly does this horrendous crime have to do with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Reproductive Health Act? Prior to that law being enacted there would have been additional charges for killing the unborn child. Now, aborting a child is never a crime, even if the abortion is performed against the mother’s will. The murder of the mother is still a crime, but killing the baby is not. That means this man will only be facing one count of murder.More
