Another preborn child in Colorado has been killed, and the assailant will not be charged with manslaughter or murder.

Last month, a Colorado woman who cut a viable baby from her mother’s womb was not charged with murder in the death of the child, despite the evidence that the baby took at least one breath.

According to Life News, the attacker will not be held accountable for the baby’s death unless an autopsy proves the child took that breath outside of the womb. Colorado is one of a few dwindling states without a real fetal homicide law protecting preborn children.

Now a second preborn baby in two months will not receive proper justice in Colorado.

On February 18, Leah Montgomery, 33, was walking on the sidewalk with her mother and her 18-month-old son when a speeding car, driven by a 16-year-old, crashed into another vehicle. The force sent the car onto the sidewalk, striking the family.

Witnesses told ABC7 that Montgomery, who was 22 weeks pregnant, was thrown into the air. Her mother and her son were injured, and Montgomery was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

On March 2, ABC7 learned that Montgomery’s preborn baby girl had died as a result of the crash. Montgomery spent a month in the hospital and is learning to walk again.

The teen driver responsible for the crash has only been charged with a misdemeanor account of careless driving, resulting in unlawful termination of pregnancy and three traffic offenses.
