Summarizing this case, writer Matt Walsh states:
A couple of weeks ago, a pregnant woman named Michelle Wilkins went to a home in Boulder, Colorado, looking to buy some baby clothes. The predator there, Dynel Lane, had placed an ad on Craigslist with the intent not of selling anything, but of stealing someone’s unborn child.
Lane accosted Mrs. Wilkins when she arrived at the house, cutting her uterus open with a knife, removing her baby and leaving her to bleed to death. Fortunately, the mother survived the attack, but sadly, her young daughter did not. Lane stowed the infant in an upstairs bathroom, where the little girl died alone in a cold bathtub.
Imagine the fear that beautiful child must have felt. Imagine the agony. Imagine the cruelty and selfishness of her slaughter. Imagine her light extinguished by the brutality and darkness of a cold, calculating killer.Tragically, the cruel death of this baby girl will not be recorded in the state’s criminal records as a murder. You see, she was a preborn child and has no legal status in Colorado, for that state does not recognize the fact that a preborn child is a human being. This absence of protection under law mirrors the same absence in the federal government.
According to the Boulder County district attorney, “Under Colorado law, there’s no way murder charges can be brought if it is not established that the fetus lived as a child outside the body of the mother for some period of time. I don’t know the answer yet as to whether that could be established—what our facts are here. One of the issues that we will need to evaluate in connection with that is the medical information from the autopsy.”
An interesting aside is that this same district attorney, Stan Garnett, has received support in the past from pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood! Wow!
