Finally, a fetus is recognized as a human being. A former youth pastor, (no, NOT Catholic), was sentenced to death for killing his pregnant 17 year old girlfriend and her unborn baby. While his lawyer claimed her client made some errors in judgment (ya think???), she didn't think he warranted the death penalty.
This marks the first death sentence in the murder of a fetus in Texas, since the law there amended its definition of the word "individual" to include an "unborn child at every stage of gestation from fertilization until birth."
No surprise it happened in Texas. They're big on everything there, including the death penalty.
