How does one determine the worth of an unborn child?

Via Another Christian Blog

This was a truly horrific act carried out by Kenneth L. Turner if proven that’s what happened. What makes one unborn child more valuable than another and is the method of killing an unborn child a determinate in whether it is a crime, a murder or just an abortion carried out legally in a clinic? Any ideas? Comment and let us know.

The Inconsistent Pro-Choice Position

An article posted on the Star Tribune website was brought to my attention the other day. It was a story about a man who horrifically attempted to kill his unborn child while beating up his ex-girlfriend. Here are a few excerpts from the article:

Kenneth L. Turner, 28, assaulted his ex-girlfriend at a home for three hours, at one point ordering her to lie on her back and stomping on her stomach with both feet, the charge said. He told her she didn’t deserve the baby and that he was going to kill it, the complaint said.

The woman is two months pregnant. It’s unclear whether her embryo suffered any permanent injuries.

Turner was charged with felony first-degree attempted murder of an unborn child and felony domestic assault. He has previous domestic assault convictions and two other violent felony convictions. Read more…

    Pt 3: So? What is the answer? Common sense would tell us that when an individual KNOWS they CANNOT afford a child, most people “with” common sense used contraceptives; and/or have a tubal ligation.
    There are those who “rely” on babies to get more $ from the State. THEY LIVE OFF OF ALL OF US, AND KEEP HAVING BABIES.
    So? What is the answer? THIS NEGATES MY POST OF PT 2. There are far too many articles that negate that opinion.

    Do we IMPLEMENT A LAW (like China did at one time) — that only an “X” amount of children can be born to a woman on welfare? Get her tubes tied?

    I, anxiously, await debate on this.

    Pt 2: I DO NOT believe in abortion. The Soul enters the body at about 4 months. The embryo can feel pain… Scientists disagree on how early fetuses may feel pain, although a new Nebraska law is based on the idea that they do have the sensation after 20 weeks.

    Pt 1 – I sat here for five minutes thinking what to say; and how to say it…because, in part, I know I am wrong. Okay…here goes, the negative part first where I am sure I will be blasted.

    In April 2009, the National Center for Health Statistics announced that nearly 40 percent of American infants born in 2007 were borne by an unwed mother; that of 4.3 MILLION.

    Welfare incentives for having children

    Does welfare encourage parents to have children in order to receive welfare checks?

    The answer is no, and this is not merely a result of welfare reform in the mid-1990s, which aimed to eliminate such incentives. Between 1969 and 1994, for instance, the average size of families on welfare decreased significantly, from four people to less than three. As of 1994, in fact, the average family on welfare was no larger than the average family not on welfare; 43% of welfare families included just one child, while 73% consisted of one or two children. Research even before welfare reform showed that welfare benefits were not a significant incentive to have children.
