Islanist terrorist Nidal Hasan should be charged for the death of the unborn child of one of his victims, Private Francheska Velez of Chicago. She was 9 weeks pregnant and would have delivered this coming May. Many of us await for additional charges to be added to the 13 counts of murder already announced against Hasan.
Gary Bauer of American Values had this to say in his Nov. 12 End Of The Day Report…..
Why Not 14?
The Army officially charged Major Hasan today with 13 counts of premeditated murder. Why not 14 counts? One of Hasan’s victims, 21 year-old Francheska Velez of Chicago, was nine weeks into her pregnancy. Hasan should be charged with the murder of her unborn baby and could be charged under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, otherwise known as Laci and Conner’s Law.
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act was signed into law by President Bush in 2004. It acknowledges the obvious: In a violent crime against a pregnant woman there are two victims – the mother and the baby. Today, our staff double-checked the law, and it covers the Uniform Code of Military Justice. In fairness, officials announcing the charges today made it clear that additional charges were possible, and the Associated Press reports that a 14th murder charge for Private Velez’ baby is under consideration.
