On March 18th, 2015, a woman named Dynel Lane lured Michelle Wilkins to her house with a Craigslist offer of baby clothes. Shortly after the 7-months pregnant Wilkins arrived, Lane literally cut her unborn child, Aurora, from her womb, utilizing a knife and a piece of broken glass. Michelle was critically injured and Aurora was killed. Lane brought the now lifeless Aurora upstairs and placed her dead body in her bathtub.
Under current Colorado law, an assault that results in an unborn child’s death isn’t a homicide. The Colorado legislature is attempting to change that and join most other states in recognizing that unborn children can be victims of a heinous crime. Predictably, the abortion lobby is not convinced. One of the potential new Colorado law’s opponents opined in the New York Times that the “core harm” of crimes like Lane’s is that “reproductive freedom” is trampled!
Everyone in the world has “reproductive freedom” right now. If you really don’t want a child, don’t engage in the act that could produce one. The freedom that was trampled was that of the baby’s right to life…to exist.
Lane may well be prosecuted for “unlawful termination of a pregnancy.”
You’ll recall how the Jews experienced “unlawful termination,” in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and how Martin Luther King, Jr. was “unlawfully terminated” on April 4th, 1968.
The “core harm” was to Michelle Watkins’ core…and her baby that resided there.
And to the soul of the nation and civilized peoples everywhere.
