Life Links 10/28/09

A 21-year-old man in Utah named Aaron Harrison has been sentenced to five years in jail after he beat up a pregnant 17-year-old girl in a failed attempt to kill the girl's unborn child. The girl, who apparently asked Harrison to beat her up because her boyfriend threatened to break up with her if she didn't get rid of the child, was originally sentenced to juvenile detention was released after a judge ruled that she was seeking an abortion and therefore couldn't be criminally liable.
The girl, who wasn't identified because she was a juvenile, pleaded no contest in June to a second-degree felony count of criminal solicitation to commit murder. Juvenile Court Judge Larry Steele ordered her to be placed in the custody of Utah Juvenile Justice Services until she was 21.

But Steele this month had the girl released from jail after ruling that she was seeking an abortion and was therefore not criminally liable.

Steele called the girl's actions "shocking and crude" in a ruling. But he said that under state law, "a woman who solicits or seeks to have another cause an abortion of her own unborn child cannot be criminally liable."

eBay says it won't allow the auction of militant anti-abortion items to raise money for Scott Roeder's defense.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth has dismissed a lawsuit which hoped to prevent the implementation of the NIH's new embryonic stem cell research guidelines.

Randall Terry is providing a great example of what NOT to do if you want to change hearts and minds on abortion. He's promoting a contest to burn effigies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
A YouTube video of the contest instructions shows how to print a poster of Reid and Pelosi and construct a stand for it. The clip shows a person dousing the Democratic leaders' images with flammable liquid. The next scene shows their picture going up in flames. People are then encouraged to take pictures, record and submit online the footage of their Oct. 31 protests.
