Texas Makes Novel Use of Fetal Protection Law

From NPR.com:  "This week, Texas made landmark use of a fetal protection law. A 19-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison for helping his pregnant girlfriend miscarry their twins. The 17-year-old girl was not charged. Many question the statute's application in the case, which they say differs from lawmakers' original intent."  Listen to story here.  [Mark Godsey]
