Mark Warawa abortion

The prosecutor in the Cleveland kidnappings case has revealed that he may seek aggravated murder charges against the alleged captor, Ariel Castro, because Castro is accused of repeatedly beating and starving one of the women in order to force several miscarriages. This particular detail has caused quite the stir because it casts a fetus in the role of a murder victim, which makes many pro-choice advocates profoundly uncomfortable. I think it's for the same reasons that expressing opposition to sex-selective abortion raises such anxiety here in Canada: It forces people to focus on the fetus rather than the mother.
