    I was curious as to what the Pro Choice members have to say about unborn victims of violence.

    In 2004 the United States passed a law declaring that unborn children can be considered the victims of violence. Unborn Victims of Violence Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Do you think an unborn child can be a victim? Does it matter if the harm is inflicted by the mother or by another individual? What about drug abuse or drinking during pregnancy - should that be prosecuted as abuse or endangerment?

    The pro abortion activists don't believe life starts until about the age of two. In NJ, if a teen drowns her baby in the toilet they get less time than a drug dealer. Post partum twinkie defense. People care more about dogs.

    But I've seen the effects of fetal alcohol and drug abuse in utero and that's why I am still pro choice. Some of these kids would be better off if they were not born at all. I hate druggies who procreate.

    What do you feel SHOULD be the charge for drug/alcohol abuse during pregnancy?

    Slippery slope. I don't want to see pregnant women arrested for having a glass of wine at a restaurant. I think drug testing all women during pregnancy would be a wasted expense and most hard core druggies don't get pre natal care anyway. In NJ if a new mom tests positive, they take the baby away. That's an appropriate punishment IMHO. What do you think?

    I agree. I just think there should be sterner enforcement of "taken away"

    Around here the child is taken - mom enters treatment - gets out - gets kid back - goes back to status quo. Only now you have a child with the damage of birth defects in the home of an addict and if you are LUCKY DSS may stop by twice a year to check in. Oh and don't forget they are now eligible for disability checks for the children they subjected to a lifetime of delays.
