Dred Scot Hawaiian style

From WorldNetDaily...

The Supreme Court of Hawaii has ruled that unborn children are not "human beings," and therefore women cannot be prosecuted for causing the death of babies by harmful behavior during their pregancies [sic]. 

The unanimous decision overturns the manslaughter conviction of 32-year-old Tayshea Aiwohi, who was found guilty in connection with the death of her newborn son by smoking crystal methamphetamine shortly before his birth....

Tayshea gave birth to her son, Treyson, July 15, 2001, but the boy perished within two days with high levels of methamphetamine and amphetamine in his system, according to the local coroner. 

The woman allegedly admitted to using the drugs for three days before the birth and took a "hit" on the morning her son was delivered. 

In their ruling, the justices cited statutes noting a crime needed to be committed against "a human being." They declared since Treyson was not a "person" when Tayshea was smoking the drugs, she could not be prosecuted for harming the infant in her womb.

Hawaii has quickly become the state of choice for Liberals who want wacko court decisions. Wonder who else they'll declare "not human"? The handicapped? The elderly?

Excellent post on a horrifying topic. I should not be surprised as Hawaii has long been a haven for more liberal democratic party. Thus the judiciary will also tend to be of that mindset.

So in Hawaii it is now ok for pregnant mothers to do drugs... scary.
