An unborn child is still a child

I live in the town where Maria Lauterbach was killed, so I have followed the entire case very closely. As I'm sure you know, Maria Lauterbach, a local Marine, was 8 1/2 months pregnant when she was murdered and buried in the backyard of the man she accused of raping her.

I drove to the crime scene, just a few miles from my own home, to watch them dig for her body. I've read news articles, watched the news every night, and last night attended a candlelight vigil for her and her unborn son. Yes, son. She planned on naming him Gabriel.

As I stood among the other 300 or so people, stroking the hair of my own son, it saddened me to know that her poor little baby doesn't even count. In the state of North Carolina, an unborn child doesn't amount to much. If, and when, Cesar Laurean is prosecuted for the murder of Maria Lauterbach, he wont be charged with the death of her son.

I have just read and signed the petition: "Death or Injury causing death to a Fetus is still Murder". Please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join me in signing the petition. It takes just 30 seconds, but can truly make a difference. They are trying to reach 2000 signatures - please sign here:

Thank you.

I tried to sign it...but I don't live in the States. I'm's not fair...if they can tell it's a boy he should be charged with murder!

That's such a shame. What a horrible thing that happened to that girl. Hope the petition helps.
