Another baby - killed at the hands of his parent. What has become of us?
TAMPA — The son of a Lutz fertility doctor killed a girlfriend's unborn child by tricking her into taking an abortion drug, federal authorities said Wednesday.Of course he won't be charged with First-Degree Murder. However, to say his first crime was product tampering "with reckless disregard for the risk that another person would be placed in danger of death of bodily injury?" Which person? The baby? Or the mother - who could have been one of thousands each day who consume this drug.
The act could put John Andrew Welden, 28, in prison for life.
The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 defines "unborn child" as "a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb."
If someone kills an unborn child while committing a federal crime, it's considered murder, said Tampa lawyer Todd Foster, a former assistant U.S. Attorney and FBI agent who is not associated with this case.
Welden's first alleged crime? Product tampering, "with reckless disregard for the risk that another person would be placed in danger of death or bodily injury."
A federal grand jury indicted him Tuesday on that charge, along with one count of first-degree murder.
Oh how the mind must twist to hope for his conviction yet continue to support this atrocity of abortion.
