Bush, 舠Laci and Conner舗s Law舡 recognizes a child in utero as a legal victim if he or she is injured or killed during the act of over 60 federal crimes of violence. The law defines the unborn child as a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the mother舗s womb. The law has a specific exemption for abortion that didn舗t satisfy its critics. 舡36 Senator Kerry made a valid point.
