In Short: The Next Anti-Choice Target: Miscarriage

I'm not fucking kidding. Only in Utah:
A new Utah law could charge women with homicide if they miscarry, making women's rights advocates concerned that women will be brought up on murder charges for drinking, failing to wear a seatbelt, or falling down the stairs.

The bill passed Utah's state legislature last Thursday and still needs final approval by the governor, but it continues to gain attention this week for its unusually restrictive language.
Usher in the Handmaid's Tale ASAP. Seriously. Is the work of government to get into our pieces parts as far as possible? Isn't this what Republicans are supposedly warning us about?

Oh yeah: doesn't apply to loose women who miscarry their children because of physical or emotional sin. Or some shit like that. Sin: defined by us and bad and makes Democrat women miscarry for which they must be punished. We miscarry? God wanted to challenge us in our faith!

No, really, I can't write anymore. Cheers!

You have got to be kidding me.

Except you're not, are you.

Makes it difficult to get women with high-risk pregnancies to come in for pre-natal care. It's my own fault...I was just thinking this country couldn't get any stupider. I promise I will stop thinking that it my head--someone, somewhere is bound and determined to prove me wrong.
