Pregnant women who are allowed to abort a baby are the only human beings permitted to commit infanticide, something no other human being is allowed to do, male or female.
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-212) establishes a separate offense for harming or killing an “unborn child” in utero during the commission of specified violent crimes. In other words, this United States law recognizes an embryo or fetus (foetus) in utero as a legal victim, if they are injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. The law defines “child in utero” as “a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.
Notably, the bill explicitly contains a provision excepting abortion, which allows a pregnant woman to commit infanticide.
The overturning of Roe v. Wade gives the citizens of each state the right to decide if they wish to sanction pregnant women committing infanticide.
