Crimes against unborn babies
Another bill involving unborn babies passed the Florida house.
This measure will make it a separate crime for killing or injuring a fetus at any stage in development.
The current law only applies to a fetus that has reached the point of surviving outside the womb and it does not apply to an injured fetus....this new bill expands that.
Penalties for killing or hurting a fetus would be the same as if the crimes were committed against a person.
The exception is that prosecutors could not ask for the death penalty in a case of first degree murder of a fetus.
