Abortion provider charged

Last October, a young woman (16) had a rather unconventional abortion - she had her boyfriend hit her in the stomach repeatedly over a two week period. Eventually, the desired result was achieved. They then buried the fetus in the boys backyard. But, now the boy (the abortion provider, as it were) is being charged under a state law passed in 1999; the "Prenatal Protection law", which states that a person assaulting a woman resulting in a miscarriage is criminally liable. The girl cannot, and is not, being charged.

This case is so wrong, on so many levels, I don't even no what to say.
