Fetal theft

fetal theft is more common than I thought.

I find it strange. In many countries the fetus has no legal right to life so I wonder how a "fetal theft" would be prosecuted - if at all. How can you prosecute a crime against a person that has no rights? Interesting that they call it "fetal theft" and not "fetal abduction"...

Why don't we call a spade a spade anymore? What's the difference between a newborn baby and one that has 5 minutes to go still in the Mother's womb? Nothing. Just semantics.

Tip o' the hat to NealeNews.

  1. I'm reminded of the SF story "A Delicate Adjustment" by Elizabeth Moon in which a childless couple hijack an implantable research embryo from a laboratory.
