Justice For Ethen

As some of you may know, I find the murder of Jenna Nielsen reprehensible. And what's even more upsetting is that it remains unsolved to this day. I know, I know...it's like finding a needle in a haystack but really, someone knows something (especially the murderer) and yet, they go on with life without conscious?

Well, if you keep up with this Raleigh crime, and so unfortunate, several others, you will know that NC does not have a fetal homicide law. Thus, the murders of Jenna and her soon-to-be-born son Ethen (she was eight months pregnant, even more fucked up for someone to kill a pregnant woman at that stage) will only count for Jenna; Ethen is not considered "murdered" as he was still in her belly, despite the fact that Ethen would be alive and well (most likely) if he were born at the time of his death.

Well, Jenna's family is trying to change that for North Carolina. Their attempt may not be unique, but it's been brought to the world of the internet.

Please consider "signing" this form, informing NC state leaders to consider passing House Bill 263 : Unborn Victims Of Violence.
