Colorado Batman Shooting Claims its 13th Victim
The Aurora Dark Knight Rises massacre has claimed its 13th victim, as a pregnant mother who survived the attack suffered a miscarriage following surgery. Ashley Moser was eight weeks pregnant when she was shot three times at theater mass shooting. Her six-year-old daughter Veronica was killed.
Nevertheless, Colorado law does not allow prosecutors to charge the suspect, James Holmes, with an additional count of homicide for her unborn child’s death. In 2012, abortion advocates led by Planned Parenthood and the Colorado Democratic Party defeated a bill, HB 1130, that would have brought justice to families like the Mosers.
