Did we ever dodge a bullet there. I’m so grateful to all those who fought to keep that amendment to the criminal code outta the books. Just look what could have happened in Canada:
Charges against Frederick Beach, accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend to death, include one under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act… He is accused of beating to death Verlinda Kinsel, 29, in September and killing the fetus she had said was his. Authorities say the victim’s 9-year-old son witnessed the assault.
If convicted, Beach faces life in prison.
If you ask me, the crying shame in this story is not the fact that the guy’s gonna get charged under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.
