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?
