The country club bitch will get off. The poor bitch will surely go to jail. In a country where fundamentalist Christians openly hate women more and more, this is where the state of the union is without an Equal Rights Amendment to keep government out of the bedrooms of America. Religious freedom to snoop, spy, punish the unrighteous through our “God is in Control” laws!
March 8th and any miscarriage in Utah will potentially be a criminal investigation according to a new law awaiting the Governor’s signature, veto and no-action which lets it become law.
People in Utah want to make certain that you did not intentionally illegally abort a fetus, murder a fetus, when you miscarry and do not go to term. Turn an emotional nightmare such a miscarriage into a magnified emotional nightmare thanks to the Christian Inquisition against all Women. God bless us or at least those of us lucky enough to have been born with penises – amen.
This is a way of further trapping a women in her pregnancy with no way out. Abortions are still legal in Utah but a women living with a violent boyfriend or husband, gets beaten up and miscarries can be charged with murder because she would have knowingly exposed the fetus to potential harm by continuing in that relationship etc. Catch 22.
The law started last year when a 17 year old girl, 7 months pregnant, paid somebody to beat her in the hopes of miscarrying. Sad situation. The girl could not be charged because of loopholes in the laws that she was charged with breaking. So now every woman, who has a miscarriage will be investigated to the full measure of the law. God willing they will have wear a scarlet "M" on their clothing - "Miscarried".
Will one criminal investigation of suspected miscarriage and its records be on file forever, online like in Oklahoma etc.? You got pervs spying on kids on laptops in Pennsylvania. Can Google spy satelites point out miscarried women's houses on the map lest we tread near and be contaminated by association by the suspected unproven murderer who got off on a technicality - the miscarriage was just a natural miscarriage, yeah right, etc. How many miscarried witches can we burn in Temple Square this week???
Utah Bill Criminalizes Miscarriage
Paltrow says this bill puts a lie to the idea that the pro-life movement cares about women.The New York Times, America’s secular atheist newspaper, takes a different tone, seems to think that Utah’s law is just like a lot of other states’ laws trying to put a women’s vagina in a cage or it is put people with vaginas into a cage. Are we certain that Fascist Murdock is not a secret shareholder at the NYT these days?
"For all these years the anti-choice movement has said ‘we want to outlaw abortion, not put women in jail, but what this law says is ‘no, we really want to put women in jail.'"
Utah Bill Would Criminalize Illegal Abortions
For example, if a pregnant woman gets into a vehicle, goes on a wild ride way over the speed limit without wearing a seatbelt and crashes and the fetus is killed, is she a reckless driver? Or is she a reckless mother-to-be who criminally ignored the safety of her fetus?If the burden of proof falls hard on all women by the white male fundamentalist right, just to weed out a few mean women, then why bother to get pregnant in the USA. Just adopt or get a poodle.
Under the bill, a woman guilty of criminal homicide of her fetus could be punished by up to life in prison.
“So many things can happen, and it’s all in the eye of the beholder — that’s what’s very dangerous about this legislation,” said Marina Lowe, the legislative and policy counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah which has urged Mr. Herbert to veto the bill.
Some women’s advocacy groups say the bill simply codifies what many states are already doing, using existing laws about the unborn to prosecute apparently errant mothers.
