India gets it...

From CWN:

Mumbai, Mar. 6, 2007 (CWNews.com) - In an unprecedented order, the highest consumer court of Mumbai in western India has ruled that "unborn child is a living person", reports the Times of India on March 6.

Rejecting an insurance company's decision to reject claims for compensation in a road accident in which 7-month pregnant woman died along with her husband in a car accident, the Maharashtra state consumer court ruled that the victims' family was entitled to compensation for the unborn child, too.

The term “human fetus” implies that the organism is alive and growing. Hence, an unborn child in the womb is living and entitled to personhood, declared the consumer court, ordering the insurance company to pay the accident insurance for the “unborn.”

If India gets it, why can't most of the rest of the world? One does wonder how long before Planned Parenthood sends "advisors" to India to try to undo this decision which is most damaging for their cause. I did an absolute double-take when I read this.
