These people don't really care about "life." If they did, they would be picketing infertility clinics rather then abortion clinics (since I bet more fertilized eggs are wasted in IFV clinics than single abortions). All this bill is attempting to do is punish women and will end up costing tax payers in order to defend this bullshit in court. (But who cares? We can just eliminate the twelfth grade to save money!)
I love this quote by Dan Savage since it highlights the inanity of such a law:
If every miscarriage is a potential homicide, how does Utah avoid launching a criminal investigation every time a woman has a miscarriage? [...] And how is Utah supposed to know when a pregnant woman has had a miscarriage? You're going to have to create some sort of pregnancy registry to keep track of all those fetuses, Utah. Perhaps you could start issuing "conception certificates" to women who get pregnant? And then, if there isn't a baby within nine months of the issuance of a conception certificate, the woman could be hauled in for questioning and she could be indicted for criminal homicide if it's determined that she intentionally or accidentally induced a miscarriage.Do the crazy Utards realize how prolific miscarriage is? It's estimated that 30 to 50 percent of fertilized eggs are lost before a woman finds out she's pregnant and another 15 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. You want to blame someone for all those miscarriages? Blame god. Blame biology. Shit blame women. But don't punish them.
Oh and since the tea bag people get to say what their tax dollars go to, I'd like to make it known that I don't want any of my dollars going towards putting women in jail. Thanks.
