Actually, no I don't agree with charging someone because they harmed a foetus. Because I am against personhood of the foetus laws.
But I thought that was obvious given my responses in this thread...

Its a case of not even viewing the foetus as a life? As human? As having the right to life taken away even by someone other than its mother.
So a person can get charged with harming / killing a dog but not a defenceless unborn baby? It just doesnt matter?
I wonder how u would feel if it was the child you loved and wanted and were carrying?
I find that very hard to comprehend.

I'm not against seeking justice for a fetus that is harmed because of someone else's actions if the mother wanted to press charges, I just can't see how it can be done without trying to give the fetus the same rights as the mother - and that just can't work. That is the only problem I have with it though. If there was a way, that didn't impinge on a woman's right to complete bodily autonomy then it would be a good thing.

I know we may think of the foetus as a baby prior to birth but the fact is that it isnt- it's a foetus. Namely because it isnt an independent entity from the mother. If you change the legal definition things get really murky. I do see the emotional side- I really do. I'm just worried about the further implications iykwim.

If the rules stick exclusively to that, then everyone wins. Women that want justice can have it, and there is no erosion of bodily autonomy. I would not support it if it included abortion.
