Oklahoma lawmakers are close to approving a bill that allows pregnant women to use deadly force to protect their unborn children. . . .
The bill was crafted after a Michigan woman who was carrying quadruplets stabbed and killed her boyfriend after he struck her in the stomach. The woman lost the babies and was convicted of manslaughter.
"Pregnant women who refuse to abort their child are too often attacked by their partner in an effort to force a miscarriage," said Rep. Mike Thompson, who co-authored the bill after Americans United for Life asked him. "Women put in this position should have the legal right to defend themselves, with lethal force if necessary."
I can't believe that woman was convicted of manslaughter. Her boyfriend killed three people.
