The Pennsylvania House of Representatives Tuesday approved two legislative measures designed to better protect the lives of unborn children in the commonwealth, announced Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Franklin), author of one of the bills.

Kauffman’s House Bill 1095 would categorize the murder of an unborn child the same as any other murder for sentencing purposes. He wrote the legislation to address a Pennsylvania Superior Court decision that reasoned in Commonwealth v. Hayes that the murder of an unborn child did not technically constitute “murder.”
