The perfect crime: Teen couple kills unborn twins, only father is prosecuted

AP, June 7 (emphasis added):
A 19-year-old East Texas man faces a life prison sentence for causing his teenage girlfriend to miscarry twins, even though she wanted to end the pregnancy.

Gerardo Flores was accused of causing the miscarriage by stepping on his girlfriend's stomach. He was prosecuted under the state's new fetal protection law.

Erica Basoria acknowledged asking Flores to help end her pregnancy. But the 17-year-old can't be prosecuted because of her legal right to abortion.
The legal system (by declining to prosecute the girlfriend) is calling this act an abortion -- so (carrying the logic to its conclusion) the worst this guy could be accused of is performing a legal act (abortion) with the mother's consent and participation but without a license.... and for that he gets a life sentence.

For the record, I think the mother should have been prosecuted as well, but those wiley feminists have succeeded in putting the entire legal burden on the father. I don't know if this is what they intended from the beginning, but I doubt they are displeased with the result.

This is adding evil to evil.
