Not Good All Around

The reporter on this story was unable to get a statement from the woman at the center or it, but from I read so far, it does not look good for her. Regardless of her reasons, I still have to swallow my disdain for her decision and say that she had the right to make it.

What I am really bothered by is the direction that the decision to prosecute her and the decision to charge Scot Peterson with two counts of murder. The Courts are being forced to charge into that quagmire of deciding when rights begin. Unlike most other instances, there is no bright line to say yes/no, alive/not alive. The legal system does not like grey, and there is no greyer area than this.
