Unborn Victims Act - The Senate passed legislation yesterday that makes it a federal crime to harm a fetus while committing another crime. In a small way, the United States Senate finally acknowledged the humanity of a fetus. This makes perfect sense - if a woman is pregnant and a criminal kills her, there are two victims in the sight of the family members left behind. The pro-abortion forces are going wild over this law, calling it a setback for abortion rights.
John Kerry, ever compliant to his special interest masters, voted nay.
Closer to home, so did Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine. That cements it for me. She is undeserving of Republican support in her next election. It's time for a primary challenger - force her to work for the support she currently gets for free.
