He used a knife:
A Sacramento Superior Court judge sentenced a 32-year-old man to 50-years-to-life imprisonment today for killing his girlfriend’s unborn baby by stabbing her in the stomach.
That’s after Danny Ray Poplin Jr. serves 12 years for corporal injury and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with his Dec. 31, 2006 attack, Judge Greta Curtis Fall ruled.
In November, a jury found Poplin guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend’s baby, which he suspected to have been that of another man. It wasn’t until DNA tests returned before trial that he knew it was, in fact, his own. His girlfriend was about six months pregnant.
The only difference I can see between this and every other late term abortion…the mother wasn’t supportive of it in this case. Would the murderer deserve to escape the murder charge if she had been?
What this case shows is that abortion is legalized infanticide. But that legality is going to change before Danny Ray Poplin Jr. gets out of prison.
