I know that life in womb is a highly controversial subject, but (at least till now) most people accept that life DOES begin at birth. So, what exactly is the difference between the life of a 6 month old and the life of an adult? Both are human beings; it's just a matter of age. Why should infanticide have a smaller punishment? Just because a woman gave birth to a child does not make her the owner of the child's life. The "battered woman syndrome" is a big hoax created by feminism. When men commit a crime, they have to take full responsibility; they cannot escape. Why should women get the privilege to escape?
