George W. Bush signs into law the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. More commonly known as Laci and Conner's Law, the measure states that any act of violence that leads to the death of a pregnant mother and her child may be counted as two offenses.
Senator Lindsey Graham, who first created the law, says:
"Regardless of pro-life or pro-choice feelings, almost 80 percent of Americans want separate prosecutions of criminals who attack pregnant women and injure their unborn child. When a woman chooses to have a child, no criminal should take that right away."
Curiously, Sen. Lindsey Graham and President George W. Bush have no particular interest in protecting the right of a woman to choose to not have a child.
