If you haven't heard of this before, I would suggest you do a search for "Rep. Bobby Franklin miscarriage" - he's a representative from Georgia who wants all miscarriages, stillbirths, and abortions - any pregnancy that does not make it to term and does not deliver a live baby - to be investigated and to prove that there was no outside cause for the death of the fetus. His bill proposes that any woman who cannot prove that her baby died from natural causes could be imprisoned or put to death. How SCARY! What if a woman is found to have miscarried and didn't know she was pg yet and she had alcohol or took a medication she shouldn't have? What if she was driving in bad weather conditions and loses control of the car. The accident might not be her fault, but if she loses a baby in the process, then she could be charged with murder? While I might be of the same party as this man, I CANNOT claim to be ANYWHERE NEAR the same line of thought as he is. He's a disgrace to the name of the Republican party and to women's rights everywhere! Those who are in GA, I hope you'll write to your congresspeople and I would encourage anyone you know to get this @#$%*!# out of office!
***Just a side note - I'm not looking for a debate or bashing of party lines here...just stating that I may share a party with this idiot (and I have a whole lot more names that are probably against TOS), but I certainly don't share his opinions at all! I just saw this today and thought I would share it with women who would share in my anger.
