This story seems surreal but an internet search indicates its true..

Zitat
A New York court recently ruled that a Long Island woman who killed her baby in a car accident cannot be convicted because her baby was not a person yet.

The Times Union reports Jennifer Jorgensen previously was found guilty of second-degree manslaughter for causing the death of her baby daughter in a car crash. She also was indicted for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the report.

Jorgensen was in her third trimester when the car accident occurred in May 2008. Her daughter was delivered by C-section after the head-on collision and died six days later, according to the report.

In October, the New York Court of Appeals reversed Jorgensenís conviction, ruling that she was not guilty because she fatally injured her daughter before she was born.

The court ruling compared Jorgensenís actions to self-induced abortion and called it an offense that is ďno greater than a misdemeanor.Ē

Jorgenson's lawyer, commenting on this case in which she also killed a couple in another vehicle, stated, "It was a hard struggle for Jennifer".

WOW!!!

This case has such unusual details.
The court presumed that the unborn have no rights from unwanted harm, until the time of birth?
That seems very contorted and odd to me.
Even if abortion is legal in NY State until that time, unwanted assault/harm resulting in death should not be without consequence.
It's not like she broke a pen in this woman's purse. She killed her baby!

There goes indicting and convicting anyone who kills the unborn child, along with the mother, by any means, in Cuomoland.

We've convicted people for killing the unborn of a victim of any homicide. Look for motions to vacate [CPL Sec.440] as a result of this.
