Legal scenario of the day
Scenario: a woman in Chicago is headed to an Abort America! franchise for a late-term abortion. (In this woman’s case, she has an Obamacare-loyalty card whereby you abort three unborn children and the fourth is free.)
As she’s en route to the Abort America! clinic, she becomes caught in a firefight between two rival gangs. During the course of the firefight, the woman’s unborn child is shot and dies before she can have her abortion. The gang members are apprehended and the woman’s injuries heal quickly and uneventfully.
Question: since she intended to abort her child, murder is not one of the crimes that the gang members can be charged with. But what if she didn’t intend to abort her child?
