Anti-abortion activists and conformists are becoming more and more vitalized and heartened due to the charges and convictions against Scott Peterson Their reasoning is that if Scott Peterson was charged and convicted of killing his unborn child there must be a legal definition for a human being residing in the womb They feel that since the fetus was defined as an unborn human being it also consequently has constitutional rights such as the right to life birth It is expected that such a case will go before the courts in California and any other state that allows the prosecution of an individual who is guilty of murdering an unborn It is also expected that the courts will maintain and uphold their argument Yet there are consequences that will affect women and our current laws if the conservatives life begins at conception philosophy were to become a law First off all conceptions would have to be reported to authorities just like births are These conceptions would then be legally monitored until either birth or miscarriage Any woman who fails to report a pregnancy would be guilty of a crime All miscarriages would then have to be investigated by authorities to confirm that it was a legal death Any woman who may have caused a miscarriage through ignorance neglect carelessness etc could be found guilty of a form of manslaughter Also any woman who ingests or inhales anything that is potentially harmful to the fetus would be subject to prosecution Current exceptions in which the court allows abortions to rape and incest victims would be abolished because a law stating human life at conception would not allow the killing of human life no matter how it was conceived Finally going to another country for an abortion would be considered first-degree murder because it would be the equivalent of taking a man to another country and killing him there These are but a few of the legalities
