    Actual verdict:
    Guilty of the murder of Laci in the first degree
    Guilty of the murder of Baby Connor in the second
    Agreed to the special circumstance.

    My girlfriend made a good point about this which actually kind of worries me a little bit. The idea that he is guilty of murdering his unborn son could be the first step in declaring abortion murder. Seems unlikely to me, but then again law is all about precedence.

    Considering that the law has been on the books for a while and has actually been used many times I don't think it's that big of a threat to abortion. Not that it would hurt my feelings but thats another matter. And IIRC the child was far enough along that abortion would have been illegal.

    Yeah, she was what, 8 months pregnant?

    Besides, the right to abortion is (right or wrong) based on the constitution, and the only way that gets overturned is by re-interpretation by the SCOTUS or amendment by Congress. You've got a lot more chance at seeing abortion overturned by Bush-friendly SC justices than this.

    She was 9 months pregnant. Killing that (unborn)baby is considered murder.

    Terminating a womans pregnancy without her consent if she was say, one month pregnant would at least be considered man slaughter or 3rd deg. murder, even though if she wanted to end the pregnancy it would have been legal in some places because of abortion laws.


    I'm glad we didn't have another OJ case on this one.
    Hmm

    I don't really see how this is any different.

    LOL last time I just listen to my girlfriends opinion on something without checking in on it. She made it sound like the baby was much younger. I'll be honest, haven't been following this story at all

    I realize you might not remember this, but OJ got off.
    Peterson is looking at the possibility of the Death Penalty.
    Difference? big
    Hmm

    OK, that's what I figured you meant. I meant that there's a huge media spectacle over 2 people dying that no one at large really cared about or even knew existed.

    Also, why the hell wouldn't I remember OJ got off?

    Because that is how these two cases are e.actly opposite, and you said they were the same, so I figured you forgot
    Hmm

    The verdicts are the only thing that're opposite here, the rest is basically the same.

    Let's agree to disagree before someone insults someone else's baby momma.
