If in killing a woman her unborn baby is killed as well...

Charge the killer with a double murder or not?

Suppose she doesn't die but the baby does?

Actually we call them mothers-to-be, or more often, pregnant women.  I had no idea you called pregnant women "Mothers".  Mirriam Websters defines Mother as:-

Noun
A woman in relation to a child or children to whom she has given birth.
Verb
Bring up (a child) with care and affection: "the art of mothering".

Perhaps it has become more colloquially used over here in the USA.  Do you also call the man who inseminated her a "Father"?   I have often heard older women announce "I am going to be a grandmother", not "I'm a grandmother", before the birth.

Actually UnOne, for once, I think you have an excellent idea - "fetus-carriers" - I like that. I wonder how many young mothers-to-be, sorry, fetus-carriers, are going to like it as well?

Might be a good way to separate the "cake havers" from the "cake eaters" --

Few, I'm pretty sure.
