Default Woman charged with murder for taking abortion pill at 5 1/2 months pregnant

3 months perfectly legal. You might even get a high five and a pat on the back by women's groups. 5 months and your facing the rest of your life in jail. Thoughts?

A Georgia woman was charged with murder after she purchased an abortion pill online and used it to attempt to terminate a pregnancy already five and a half months along, police said.

Kenlissa Jones, 23, gave birth in a car on the way to a hospital Saturday night, shortly after taking Cytotec, which she purchased on the Internet from someone in Canada, WALB-TV reported. Abortions in Georgia are only allowed by law in the first trimester, unless carried out at a licensed medical facility.

The baby boy died 30 minutes after Jones arrived at a hospital in Albany, a southern Georgia city in Dougherty County.

That no way to think about it. There must be a cutoff point. And everyone can always say "1 second before cutoff point = okay, 1 second after = jail" no matter where the cutoff point is.

The only logical, scientific cutoff point is conception. 2 months, or 5 months, what's the difference? There isn't any - the aborted two month baby will be 5 months old in a further 3 months provided someone doesn't abort it to give themselves an easier life, a more 'planned' life, one that completely resolves around their own wants and needs, at the expense of others; and ironically, this is usually among the same kind of people who think altruism the key principle of good government.

That's not logical from practicality point of view though.

No. The only logical, scientific cutoff point is when the fetus shows brain activity.

Just like the only logical, scientific cutoff point for human life is when brain activity ceases.

every pro life supporter should be signed up in a waiting line to adopt the next abandoned baby otherwise they shouldn't be able to force their moral values on others. its ridiculous they just want to sit on a couch and tell people whats right and wrong without helping their own cause or willing to support it.

i bet it'd be less of a issue if pro life people just took ownership of the child after birth and were willing to raise it, no strings attached. and the birth mother allowed to remain anon.

but no that would inconvenience them too much to support their moral stance

@Godzuki

You haven't answered the question.

Should the mother be punished for killing the baby?

So what's the issue here? Seems like a fair ruling.

Say if instead of her taking this abortion pill, someone else slips into her coffee or something. When the baby is killed, is the person who slipped the abortion pill in her drink guilty of some sort of crime? I mean, apparently it's not a real person, and it's perfectly legal to kill it.
