Georgia Lawmaker's Anti-Abortion Proposal Could Punish Women for Miscarriages | Fox News
Introduced by Rep. Bobby Franklin [of Georgia], the bill would require that any woman who has had a miscarriage report the incident to authorities within 72 hours of its occurrence. At that point, an investigator will be dispatched to determine the cause of death, and if the mother cannot prove that there was no “human involvement,” then she can be charged with “prenatal murder,” which carries the penalty of death or life behind bars.
Better start voting to build more prisons, Lurker....and more graveyards because we're going to need them if Romney and Ryan are elected.
Not sure if this is faulty logic, general rationalization or just plain bovine processed oats ... probably all three.
Again, I invite you to show me where R and/or R said this.
It is very strage that this thread has over 200 posts (in the first place), and they're not all "Wow, that's probably the most idiotic thing I've ever seen a politician say".
I mean, what are you people discussing?
Hucklebee also said today that a number of great people have come from women who were raped. This is apparently the way the GOP thinks. Look at their proposed Constitutional Amendment. And people doubt the War On Women.In an interview with KTVI-TV over the weekend, Akin had said that “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” referring to pregnancy after so-called “legitimate rape.”
Barnes “echoed Mr. Akin’s statement that very few rapes resulted in pregnancy,” according to the Times, and she added that “at that point, if God has chosen to bless this person with a life, you don’t kill it.”
So rape according to the GOP is God's choice and if a woman becomes pregnant from being raped "God has chosen to bless this person with a life." What kind of a sick and demented person would say that? It seems to be a GOP position and the GOP wants to make it policy.
