Man goes to jail for killing preborn baby in car accident, wonders why abortionists don’t

Letter from a man who is in jail. He was convicted and sentenced for killing a preborn baby in an accident he caused through drunk driving. He says:

“What is the difference? Why do we mourn one and not the other? Why did I get punished for this woman losing her child in the automobile accident? Doesn’t an abortion also result in the same thing, the killing of an innocent child? This same woman could’ve had an abortion yesterday, and I would not be in here, and nothing would’ve been said about this baby. This baby would have been discarded like a piece of trash. Now I am that piece of trash that killed an innocent life. What about the abortionist who does all those abortions? Do they not also take an innocent life? Why are they not punished? Do they have a license to kill?”

16 weeks. This baby could be killed legally by an abortionist, but if someone else were to kill him through an act of violence or neglect, it would be a crime.
