This is bad news?

According to Feministing, it is.

Here is what is being called "bad news":
A Florida House committee on Thursday passed a measure (HB 513) that bill that defines life as beginning at conception for the purpose of prosecuting violent acts against pregnant women, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports (Hafenbrack, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, 3/12). The bill would define an "unborn child" as "a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb" (HB 513 text, 3/13).

My, how terrible that is. Considering an unborn baby an actual human being. My, my, how awful the Florida House is.

Why exactly is this bad news? This is, in all actuality, excellent news. I know that feminists and Planned Parenthood like to pretend that it's just a blob of flesh and is completely meaningless, therefore making it easier for women to murder their babies and still feel guilt-free over but guess what? It's not, and most women don't feel guilt-free. But don't tell NOW that.

This bill still has to go through a few committees before it's considered Florida law. Let's hope that it is passed.
