Yes it does. It counts as felony murder.

I used the wrong term earlier. It's called Felony murder, not criminal homicide. I'm dumb.

Oh yeah I forgot about felony murder. I hoped that if I forgot about it, it would stop existing altogether.

What if someone shoots the driver of a bus and he drives off a cliff with all the passengers. Does that count as murdering a bus load of people or just murdering one and manslaughter of all the rest?

As comical as this question is, I'd say probably a high degree of manslaughter.

Murder.

But this all depends on how good of a lawyer the guy gets.

So if a pregnant woman tries to kill herself and fails, should she be charged with attempted murder?

...and then sentenced to death?

The first scenario is criminal homicide, which is pretty much murder. The second is first degree murder.

The problem with murder discussion is that there's a lot more to murder charges. There's a lot of factors that goes into deciding the charge and all that stuff, so that prevents it from being super easy to generalize.

The point is, though, when you kill somebody you are held responsible for it. Let's say you're robbing a gas station. You fire two shots. You miss the target, but one of the bullets goes through a wall, hitting somebody on the other side. You'd be charged with murder, even though your intention wasn't to kill that person and you had no idea he was behind that wall.

It's classified as murder because of the number of crimes you're involved in at the same time. Not because of what you're saying. Manslaughter =/= murder.

That is what I'm saying.

I know what manslaughter is.

She has to be forced to live long enough to conceive the child before she dies. Forced labour.

Congratulations?

If this relates back to abortion...a fetus is not a person. Legally or otherwise. Nor should a fetus be. I don't understand a logical, empirical, reasonable basis for declaring that a fetus does deserve the same rights and freedoms as a person (for example, the mother). If you believe otherwise, demonstrate so. Otherwise I really do wish Canada actually aborted people like I accidentally told a UGers wife earlier.

Why?


so that the parents of a mentally or physically deformed baby can decide to euthanize it rather than let it suffer until it's death a few years later.

So eugenics?
