Gee, thanks!

It's nice to know that, in the Texas Attorney General's opinion, abortion providers should not be eligible for the death penalty for providing abortions in violation of the state's parental consent law.  The opinion states that they are, however, subject to a maximum penalty of a third-degree felony, which carries a possible sentence of up to 10 years and a $10,000 fine.  This illustrates the kind of confusion and uncertainty that arises when states enact laws that define a fetus as a person.  Read the story in the Dallas Morning News: AG: No death penalty in abortion cases.  Read more about fetal protection laws:
