Yesterday afternoon the jury in the Scott Peterson murder trial found him guilty of first-degree murder of his wife Laci and second-degree murder of his unborn son Conner.
The question I have for everyone is this. If it’s legal to terminate a pregnancy by means of abortion, how can the jury consider Peterson guilty of murder of an unborn child? I’m not a pro-lifer. I don’t think I should have any say in a pregnancy unless I was partially responsible for that pregnancy.
I just wonder if this verdict might have farther-reaching ramifications than just what happens to Peterson. I’m pretty sure he did it. I didn’t follow the entire trial, but I had always thought that the prosecution didn’t present enough evidence to find him guilty. Apparently, I was mistaken.
I await your opinions.
