I fear the beginning of a slippery slope

Every week, I get a "Legislative Wrap-Up" newsletter from a member of the Tennessee General Assembly (state legislature). This week's includes the following note:
House Bill 3495 specifies that when someone commits a homicide or assault against a pregnant woman, the woman's fetus, regardless of viability, is also considered a victim of the offense. The legislation passed out of the Public Health and Family Assistance Subcommittee and will next be heard by the House Health and Human Resources Committee.

I am being over-fearful in wondering if this is a first step toward the kind of assininity recently perpetrated in Utah?
