bush signs fetus-protection bill

bush signed the unborne victims of violence act today that makes it a federal crime to harm a fetus during an attack of a pregnant woman. murdering a pregnant woman would then be considered a double-homicide. the bill only applies to federal crimes, but is a pretty important bill as it legally defines an unborne fetus as a person with rights. a fine step to a ban on abortion in the next few years.
