Ft Hood Massacre, 13 Charges of Murder "What About Baby Velez"

The Military's Motto: No Man Left Behind - There is an unborn baby of a Slain American Army Iraq Veteran, Not Being Counted. 12 soldiers 1 civilian, and the unborn child of a Slain Army Veteran. I can do math that's 14 murdered. Is this how we honor American Military Veterans?

Pvt. Francheska Velez
Velez, 21, of Chicago, was pregnant and preparing to return home. A friend of Velez’s, Sasha Ramos, described her as a fun-loving person who wrote poetry and loved dancing.

“She was like my sister,” Ramos, 21, said. “She was the most fun and happy person you could know. She never did anything wrong to anybody.”

Family members said Velez had recently returned from deployment in Iraq and had sought a lifelong career in the Army.

“She was a very happy girl and sweet,” said her father, Juan Guillermo Velez, his eyes red from crying. “She had the spirit of a child.”

Ramos, who also served briefly in the military, couldn’t reconcile that her friend was killed in this country just after leaving a war zone.

“It makes it a lot harder,” she said. “This is not something a soldier expects — to have someone in our uniform go start shooting at us.” Kalamazoo Michigan News, Keep Reading HERE

I didn't want to blog about this incident but outside of Michelle Malkin, I haven't read where anyone is standing up or speaking up for Baby Velez. 14 not 13, I watched the news today, there was no mention when reporting on the 13 charges of murder of the unborn child of Iraq Army Veteran Francheska Velez's baby. Who will speak up for a life not counted?

The Federal Law:
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-212) is a United States law which recognizes a "child in utero" as a legal victim, if he or she is injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. The law defines "child in utero" as "a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb."[2]

The law is codified in two sections of the United States Code: Title 18, Chapter 1 (Crimes), §1841 (18 USC 1841) and Title 10, Chapter 22 (Uniform Code of Military Justice) §919a (Article 119a).

States government has jurisdiction, including certain crimes committed on Federal properties, against certain Federal officials and employees, and by members of the military. In addition, it covers certain crimes that are defined by statute as federal offenses wherever they occur, no matter who commits them, such as certain crimes of terrorism.
