HB104: Criminalize the violent death of unborn fetus

Proponents of this bill argue that pregnant women are frequently targeted for abuse, because they are pregnant. This bill would define a fetus as an unborn person. Thus defined, the fetus would become a victim separate from the mother, and fetal death could be charged as murder, manslaughter, etc. The usual supporters (abortion opponents) lined up to support the bill at the first hearing on January 14, basically downplaying the idea that defining a fetus as an unborn person would have any impact outside this legislation.
