The depths to which some will go...

You've probably already heard about this, but this story explains how "The head of the National Organization for Women's Morris County chapter is opposing a double-murder charge in the Laci Peterson case, saying it could provide ammunition to the pro-life lobby."

The article quotes NOW's Morris County President, Mavra Stark, who stated, ""If this is murder, well, then any time a late-term fetus is aborted, they could call it murder."

You're right, Marva. It is murder, in both cases. What must be news to Ms. Stark is this: over 24 states already have "fetal homicide" laws. Now, how abortion remains legal in these states is a good question (who said legislators are consistent?). But the fact remains, that at least in cases where the mother wants the child, you can't kill it without the law coming down on you. But NOW apparently wants to change that, too.
