Bush signs so-called "Unborn Victims of Violence" Act into law

It is SO obvious that this is a play towards banning abortions completely: "Nowhere in this legislation is the harm to or violence against the woman mentioned. In fact, when the sponsors of this bill were given the opportunity to vote for a substitute that had similar criminal penalties, but that recognized that the pregnant woman is the victim of the crime, they voted against it." That's a quote from Planned Parenthood's email today; you can read their press release here. You can also read more about the struggle in this op-ed piece Senator Diane Feinstein sent to the SF Chronicle; Sen. Feinstein proposed just such an amendment, which failed 49-50.

Followup

More from YahooNews: "Abortion opponents welcome it as a step toward more sweeping protections for the unborn, while abortion-rights proponents say the measure represents the first recognition in federal law of an embryo or fetus as a separate person." Sounds like they agree on the possible uses of this law, actually. The difference of opinion is on whether it's a good idea.
