When a pregnant woman is murdered in North Carolina, the unborn child is not recognized as a Victim.
Unborn Victims Of Violence Act (Ethen's Law) will change that.
Unborn Victims of Violence will state the following:
AN ACT TO PROVIDE THAT A PERSON WHO commits the crime of murder or manslaughter OF A PREGNANT WOMAN is GUILTY OF A SEPARATE OFFENSE for THE RESULTING DEATH OF THE unborn child and to provide that a person who commits a felony or a misdemeanor that is an act of domestic violence and injures a pregnant woman that results in a miscarriage or stillbirth by the woman is guilty of a separate offense that is punishable at the same class and level as the underlying offense.
