Where are The Fetus©™ fetishists?

Where's the shrieeekkking? Where are the zygote zealots? Where are the blogging screeds, demanding justice for The Fetus©™ of Marwa el-Sherbini?

Oh, Wait. That doesn't sound like a fundamentalist christian name, does it? That would explain the MASSIVE silence from the usual abortion criminalizers.

What happened to Marwa is Exhibit A: Murdered because the forces of sexism, racism and xenophobia collided and erupted in the actions of the accused, "Alex W".

Sherbini, a pharmacist who was four months' pregnant and wore the Islamic head scarf, was involved in a court case against her neighbour after he called her a terrorist. She was due to testify when he stabbed her 18 times inside the courtroom in front of her three-year-old son.

The neighbour, who has only been identified as 28-year-old Alex W, remains in detention and prosecutors have opened an investigation on suspicion of murder. ...

The woman's husband was critically wounded in the attack, after he tried to intervene and was stabbed by the attacker and accidentally shot by court security.

More here.

Meanwhile, over at Blob Blogging Wingnut's place, SHE indulges in HER second-most favourite hobby, after plastering HER website with photos plucked from Ob/Gyn textbooks - psychobabble moralizing.

A little OT. Given that this trial was merely an appeal by the attacker of the earlier sentence he received for racism against Marwa, how the hell did he that knife past security?

Not at all, Alison. That's one of the questions that are being raised. I don't know if "Alex W." was given a pass, deliberately or not, but you'd think in a country dealing with neo-nazi violence and racism, German officials would have security systems that prevent people from bringing weapons into a court room.

suspicion of murder? There are a series of questions in this case. How did this murderer manage to stab this woman 18 times, with guards in the room? And then they shoot the wrong man?
