North Carolina passes unborn victims of violence law

North Carolina recently became the latest state to pass a law protecting unborn victims of violence. Here is the story from the National Right to Life News. See http://www.nationalrighttolifenews.org/news/2011/05/north-carolina-latest-state-to-enact-unborn-victims-of-violence-law/ That story contains a link to NRLC’s complete coverage of the federal and state laws on this topic. Back in 2001, I had the privilege of testifying before Congress on a federal bill on this topic. http://commdocs.house.gov/committees/judiciary/hju71182.000/hju71182_0f.htm The federal law was ultimately passed in 2004.
