Pregnancy = LIFE

The BBC reported today that a Vietnamese woman who had received a death sentence for drug trafficking has become pregnant. Because of the pregnancy, Vietnam law requires her death sentence to be converted to a life sentence.

Vietnam is not a name synanomous with stellar human rights policy. But they recognise that a second life is involved - an innocent second life at that - at ELEVEN weeks gestation.

We in America have some "splaining" to do. . .
