I found this article here.

LOS ANGELES — Authorities say a 37-year-old Los Angeles man has been arrested on suspicion of murder for the death of an unborn child believed to be his.

Police said in a press release that Joshua Woodward was arrested Sunday in Los Angeles and is being held on $2 million bail in a county jail.

Police say the arrest came after an investigation on Monday revealed "suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage." Investigators estimate the fetus was in its 13th week.

Police released no information on the mother or the circumstances of the child's death.

The release says Woodward is believed to have ties to Miami and Chicago and detectives are also seeking information in those cities.

Investigators are set to present the case to prosecutors on Tuesday.

A deputy at the jail had no information on an attorney for Woodward.

Seriously? Now, granted this is horrible, but abortion clinics get away with every day. How is this any different? The legal system in this country amazes me. This should be an interesting case though. Can they really arrest him for murder if the unborn baby is not a human life as our country claims? If so, how (if at all) will that effect the pro-abortion agenda?

Wow - this is the kind of double standard that makes me so mad.

They can unfortunately have the double standard because the mom didn't consent to an abortion. And in their opinion the fetus is just a part of the mother's body and she can do what she wishes with it- but someone else can't kill her baby without her consent. So, unfortunately it won't effect the pro-abortion movement at all- because it's not about the rights of the baby, it's about the "rights" of the mother.
