Who owns the life of the unborn?
A Wellington taxi driver has been found not guilty of driving carelessly after a collision that claimed the life of his unborn son.
Bililigne Gebretsadik, 41, has pleaded not guilty to three charges of careless driving, two of causing injury and one of careless driving causing the death of his unborn child in June last year.
At 31 weeks’ pregnant his wife, Seble Cherie, was a passenger in a car Gebretsadik was driving. She was injured and lost the baby after an emergency caesarean section in Wellington Hospital.
But wait just a minute … can’t a woman walk into abortion clinic and demand an abortion? Yet this man is charged with causing the death of ‘his’ unborn child?
Is this equality of the sexes?
