Scott Peterson Found Guilty

Share this merde!

This just in: the jury in the Scott Peterson double murder trial has found Peterson guilty of both the murder of his wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn child.

What a sad, sad situation, no matter how you look at it.

What is interesting from a legal standpoint is the issue of what is considered murder of a fetus. Typically it is when the child is wanted, and someone intervenes and causes their death.

But, what if it were someone else who had actually murdered Laci, and what if Laci hadn’t wanted the baby, and Scott had?

And how is that different from a father having no say over the voluntary termination of the pregnancy of his child?

Very interesting legal issues ahead, I predict.
