    South Carolina Bill Wants to Apply 'Stand Your Ground' Law to Fetuses

    But the controversy over the proposed law is not so much that it extends the “stand your ground” law to include unborn babies but, by doing so, it effectively grants full constitutional rights to unborn fetuses from the moment of conception.

    I say let the fetuses have as many weapons as they can acquire.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Hate to say it, I'm siding with the "murder on demand" crowd. Just another example of state legislators passing stupid laws. Instead of, oh, I don't know, like constitutional carry in SC, maybe?
