Fetus ≠ Person

The Unborn Victims of Violence Act is a complete joke. It was designed to undermine abortion by granting personhood to embryos and fetuses.

Causing the death/destruction of an embryo or fetus should be considered an aggravating circumstance, and the perpetrator should absolutely be held civilly liable for any pain & suffering, emotional distress, and financial losses caused by their actions. But to treat an embryo the same way you would an actual human victim is not merely irrational — it’s grossly offensive.
