White House thinks harming fetus during assault should be a federal crime..

The assault itself is not a federal crime. What’s up with this?

Veiled federal anti-abortion measure?

The Unborn Victims of Violence Act as now worded, as I understand it, would make it a crime if a fetus is killed during the commission of a federal crime of violence. If it’s changed to where harming the fetus during a state crime assault is a federal crime UVVA is going to have a really tough time against a constitutional challenge. It might anyway.

Arguably, that too. The National Right to Life Foundation is all for it, Planned Parenthood vehemently against it, everyone lined up on their usual sides.
